    After playing around with this plugin for a bit I've gotten it working almost perfectly. However there's one issue that will prevent be from using it. I'm unable to have the thumbnails default to the featured thumbnail for each post in the gallery. I can grab the first image, the last image, or setup a string search through my image names -- but this all results in images being used that are undesirable. I just want to use the featured image I've set for some 450+ posts. Is this possible with the current version of the plugin?

    Thanks,
    Christopher

    Hey, colossal. Have you managed to get this plugin to use featured images?

    I decided to use Related Posts Thumbnails which I've found to be almost 100% customizable in look and feel and it defaults to the featured images.

    You can see it in use at the bottom of any post here:

    @colossal, are you saying you created your visual archive with the Related Posts Thumbnails plugin?

    Your archive is...one of the best on the interwebs.

    No, the visual archive I made from scratch with a buddy.

    I see. Looks great. If you ever feel like sharing with the WP community, I think people would really love to see your code. Just a thought. Great site you've got over there.
