Video Thumbnails
Thumbnail Filenames confliciting (3 posts)

    Hi, I have a "Special Recent Posts" plugin that shows recent posts with a small thumbnail, I've recently noticed on any posts that had got it's image via this plugin, sometimes shows wrong thumbnail now on Special Recent Posts.

    I had a look in my media library and the Thumbnails are only getting uploaded as 01.jpg etc, which I think is where the problem is.

    Is there anything I can change so the Thumbnails get uploaded with a bit of the youtube name in or something like that? Would be a lot neater way of saving the files anyway, despite the plugin conflict.

    I've tried emptying the Special Recent Posts cache etc

    Thanks

    As of right now file names are uploaded as the file name received from the video source. The thumbnails currently retrieved from youtube are named 0.jpg, but WordPress automatically handles duplicate files names by appending a number that results in file names like 01.jpg, 02.jpg, 03.jpg, etc.

    These aren't attractive file names, but a fix is in the works that uses better file names, but not sure when that will be delivered.

    As for the conflict, it's likely there's a problem with the "Special Recent Posts" plugin because there's no reason it should be confusing file names since WordPress automatically makes them unique.
