    Are you kidding! This is not a plugin this is a code hack, if I wanted one than I would have looked for one. One question after reading the readme.html, if I sign up to the advertised group than the service would include making this into an actual plugin? If yes maybe I would consider it.

    I installed this plugin, spent 10 minutes looking for it in the dashboard couldn't find it. Then I read the read me first html file in there you find the user group mentioned plus the fee. This is not a plugin, a plugin supposed to work as opposed to looking for files and inserting code into them according to the description of this "plugin". Maybe I am too harsh, but wasted time trying to understand how to make it work before actually reading the "instructions", not to mention that it is useless the featured image inside wordpress does all what this "plugin was supposed to do".

    Doesn't sound like this is the right plugin for you. It has its usefulness for a large number of people, but it's definitely not something for everyone.

    This is not a plugin, a plugin supposed to work as opposed to looking for files and inserting code into them according to the description of this "plugin".

    Actually, that's not the definition of a plugin at all. A plugin is simply a PHP script that extends WordPress in some way. How it's used has no bearing on its status as a plugin.

    ...not to mention that it is useless the featured image inside wordpress does all what this "plugin was supposed to do".

    This is also incorrect. The WordPress featured image functionality only does one thing this plugin does. Their purposes are the same, but what they can do are very much different.

    hilarious. No, make that: sad. And a warning: when you write easy to use plugins, some users expect them to work intuitively, before actually reading the "instructions", it having magical DWIM functionality (Do What I Mean). Apparently, your time doesn't matter, only their "wasted" 10 minutes. Justin, please know that *most* of us do value your work; a lot!

    Actually guys, I should thank you I ended up with a code that I inserted into my archive.php and functions.php and presto thumbnails with search results, which was what I was looking for. Being a novice a plugin is the first thing I am looking for and read everything I can about them to avoid and stay clear of code inserting because it is a scary thing for me personally, I do not understand what exactly a particular line of php actually does. Not to mention that with the next theme update all will be gone and the code inserting would have to be redone. I did not think this is a plugin like feature as well. So forgive for mistaking your plugin for an automated plugin like all the other plugins that I use. I found and used these instead:

    Apologies,

    Sorry Greenshady I did not read the comments on your site before and did not realize that you are Justin Tadlock. I apologize for my mistake and thank you very much for the excellent instructions on that linked page which I used and implemented and it works beautifully!
