Auto Post Images (API)

Automatically insert images to posts without having to edit the post. Supports renaming images for search engine optimization (SEO). Note: The plugin

I not sure how to name the images?

  • If under "Search Setting" for "How do you want to attach images to a POST?" you choose "Post ID"
  • If under "General Settings" the "Image search Regular Expression?" is set to the default "^api__POSTID__[^0-9]+"
  • If the POSTID of the post that the images are for is 123 then the images names in the following format will work:
    • api123.jpg
    • api123something.jpg
    • api123_a.jpg
    • api123_b.jpg
  • The following will not work:
    • api123_cat1.jpg
    • api123_cat2.jpg
    • cat_photo_123.jpg
    • api__123__cat.jpg
  • If you set "Rename images for SEO?" to "Yes" you should still name the images as described above. The plugin will rename the images for SEO.

I want a feature. Can you add it for me?

Sure. Drop me an email :)

How do I not show the default image when there is no image for a post?

  1. Go to Dashboard
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click Auto Post Images (API) Settings
  4. Select "No" under "Display default image if not image is found?"
  5. Click "Update Settings"
  6. Now the default "Image Coming Soon" image is not displayed for posts that do not have images.
  7. Posts that have images will continue displaying the images as usual

I don't want to use thumbnails. I want full size images in my posts

  1. Go to Dashboard
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click Auto Post Images (API) Settings
  4. Select "No" under "Use thumbnails to link to full size images?"
  5. Click "Update Settings"
  6. Now the full size images are added to posts instead of thumbnails

Where is the Plugin Admin Panel? Do you expect me to edit the code myself?

  1. Go to Dashboard
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Click Auto Post Images (API) Settings

I want to name the images something other than apiPOSTID ?

Sure. All you have to do is change the regular expression "Image search Regular Expression?". Just make sure it has POSTID somewhere in the expression so that the plugin knows which images are attached to which post.

Do I name the images differently when SEO is enabled ?

No. You still upload the images using the same filename format specified in "Image search Regular Expression?". The plugin will use this to search for images associated with the post and then rename them using the posts title.

What image types are supported?

Anything that the browser supports.

How do I change the image position and style

You can customize the image position and style by providing your own CSS classes in the Customize appearance section in the settings page. You can also change the styles in /auto-post-images/css/kkimageinpost.css. If you like to change where the images are displayed (top, bottom, left, right, center) then providing your own CSS style class here is the best way.

I have a question that is not answered here

Email me. I'll be happy to answer it.
