Suffusion
[resolved] Featured content scroller not using WP-native featured image (6 posts)

    I'm using the Featured Content scroller in this theme but it doesn't seem to make use of the WP-native featured image as a background. It displays an image correctly if I use the same image url in the Suffusion 'featured image' options. (And, iirc, it pulls images from the post content.)

    I am able to use a native featured image without issues. Make sure that under Other Graphical Elements → Featured Content → How to Show → Image Preference Order you prioritize as per your preferences.

    I have the preference order defined correctly. I will play about some more and see what I can find.
    Would it be a problem if the WP-native featured image has come from a NextGen gallery?

    That could be a possibility, but I have never experimented this combination. It comes down to whether the WP function the_post_thumbnail() can return a NextGen image.

    Certainly WP featured image works using an image from a NextGen gallery, but I will experiment some more and see what I find.
    Thank you for the prompt support.

    OK! Sorted.
    It is indeed a problem with pulling the image from the NextGen gallery. It seems to pull the first image from the gallery rather than the correct one.
    If I use an image from the WP media library then it works properly.
    Maybe something to look at as an enhancement, but at least I now can get it working correctly.
