    Thanks for the great plugin, however it's a pity that you can't use media from another networkblog as a featured image. Maybe an idea to add that to the wish list?

    Hi all,

    I've been looking into this and I'm afraid it's quite complicated.

    WordPress stores the featured image only by media id (for the current blog), so I can't link to the "other" blog.

    It implement this, the whole featured image functionality must be rewritten.

    I will put it on my list, but don't expect anything soon...

    +1, for this feature, please!

    This plugin is extremely useful for keeping up multilingual-multisite network, and this feature would make it complete... Great work!

    Thanks

    +1 for this feature.
    This is a great plugin. Without the feature to add featured image from other blogs, it's less efeective.
    Maybe there's a way to first "copy" an image from another site on the network to the current site, and then it will have an image ID (i.e. it will be saved as a post in wp_X_posts table, but the file itself won't be duplicated, like the file-gallery plugin does when duplicating instanced of attachments copied between posts in a same site). In such a way, after having an image ID, it would be easier to have it as a featured image as well.

    Thanks.

    Hi maorb,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will look into the file-gallery plugin code to see if I can easily implement this.

    Hi all,

    Good news: I've got a (alpha quality) version of the plugin supporting featured images!

    I would like to invite you to try this version (please don't use a production environment!).
    I've tested the plugin on WP3.5 and the 3.6 'trunk' version.
    It works with the TwentyTwelve theme. It does not work with TwentyTen and TwentyEleven (because of the way those theme test for a featured-image).

    You can only add the networked featured image through the "Add media" button. I'm still struggling with the new media browser introduced in WP3.5 :-/

    You can download the plugin at: https://github.com/joostdekeijzer/wp_network_shared_media/tree/featured-image-support

    I'm curious how it works on your systems with your themes.

    Hi in my costum theme i use:
    $url = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID) );
    to get the URL of the featured image. But this didn't work since he tries to search the thumbnail_id in the wrong multisite-mysql-table?!

    I got a resolution for me:

    $xmlobject = simplexml_load_string(get_the_post_thumbnail());
    $url = $xmlobject->attributes()->src;

    In this version i copy the src attribute of the img tag with the php function simplexml_load_string.

    thanks for the plugin!

    Hi Neueweide,

    get_post_thumbnail_id doesn't have any hooks so I can't alter the inner-workings. And yes: it does look in the wrong WP table :-/

    The blog_id is stored as metadata for the post with the key: _nsm_thumbnail_blog_id, so you could also do:

    $new_blog = absint( get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_nsm_thumbnail_blog_id', true ) );
    if( 0 < $new_blog ) switch_to_blog( $new_blog );
    $url = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID) );
    if( 0 < $new_blog ) restore_current_blog();

    Would it be an idea to add a convenience function like
    nsm_get_post_thumbnail_url( $post_id ) ?

    Oh hi joost de keijzer,

    sorry for my late reply ;)
    thanks for providing another solution.

    The simplexml_load_string is already in use in one of my projects ... so for me no need for an extra Function.

    thanks again for this great and usefull plugin :)

    @joost de keijzer

    I'm trying out your version that adds Featured image support, and I noticed that the normal "Insert into Post" link has been removed.

    Is it possible to have both the featured image and the normal "Insert into Post" link? If so, what's the best way to add the "Insert into Post" back?
