FPW Category Thumbnails
[resolved] Thumbnail overwrites? Running sequence of plugin? (2 posts)

    Hello! This is a wonderful plugin, but I am facing a bit of issue here.

    I am using this plugin together with "auto post thumbnail" which will automatically grab an image from the post and set it as featured.

    The problem I am facing is, upon install FPW and run manually, it replaces all the posts' already-set featured image, even after I set it to 'do not replace'.

    My next question is, since I am running both of this plugin, how do I set the running sequence of both plugin, e.g. Run auto-post-thumbnail to check if there's any image, and if there's none, run FPW? Based on the current situation, the auto-post-thumbnail is useless as FPW either run 1st, or just replace anything auto-post-thumbnail did.

    Thank you for this plugin, and I hope you can help me!

    Based on an assumption that you use Auto Post Thumbnail by Aditya Mooley and Tarique Sani the proper order of actions will be:
    1. in FPW Category Thumbnails uncheck the box Do not overwrite if post / page has thumbnail assigned already, click on Update button, and then click on Apply Mapping button. This will add category thumbnails to all posts in categories which have thumbnail image assigned.
    2. in FPW Category Thumbnails check the box Do not overwrite if post / page has thumbnail assigned already, click on Update button, and then go to Auto Post Thumbnail and click on Generate Thumbnails button. This will add thumbnails to all posts which still do not have a thumbnail but have an image within its content. Please let me know if that solved the problem.
