Thumbs Not Appearing in Excerpts
By , for WP 3.5.1

Hello, I'm using an Artisteer theme in 3.5.1.

I also have KK Star ratings enabled at the top of all posts.

I'm using "Auto Excerpt everywhere" plugin, which is supposed to summarize the text AND auto-add a thumbnail. It summarized the text very nicely, but it is not adding thumbs!

So, I installed "Thumbnail For Excerpts" - but still, no thumbs showing in excerpts!

I would prefer to use only the "Auto Excerpt everywhere" plugin, by itself, if it could be made to show thumbs. I like the fact I could add a line-beak tag in the "read more" field.

Any advice will be appreciated, I really want those thumbs, and I want them 200x150, proportionate to the screenshot, not square, as I am trying to sell WordPress themes.

By design, ALL my posts begin with a 300x225 screenshot.

But KK Star ratings is set for the top of all posts, so stars would be auto-inserted right before the screenshot. I wonder if the star ratings plugin is blocking a thumb appearing in excepts? I do not want to move or remove my star ratings.

Or maybe it's another issue?

In Media general settings, I have "thumbs" set to a different size, hopefully that does not affect the different size thumb in the "Auto Excerpt everywhere" plugin?

Thanks if you anyone can help.
