[resolved] replacing thumbnail (featured image) (4 posts)

    Is there a way to change the way this plugin collects the correct picture? I'd like to set it up to collect the first image in each post and use that as the image to display. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

    The YARPP thumbnail option uses the WordPress "featured image". That's how the image is chosen.

    But is there any way to change that? If I chose a "featured image" in my theme for my post it puts the picture at the very top of the post and most of the time I don't want that. I normally want to say a little something before having an image. Any suggestions on how I can change this in my theme or maybe the new version of this plug in will have a feature of selecting the first image? I also tried to change the default image and I don't know how. Help please?

    I have the same problem.
    On a lot of themes, when you use featured images and display summary blog view, all your images show up twice in the archive/summary view, or they are above the content, which is not good.

    I want to just use the first image in the post.
    Is there some way to change the code?

    There's a plugin called Easy Add Thumbnail that extracts the first image from content and makes it the featured image:
