As I can see some negative reviews here, thos are bcos those people might be unaware of what the plugin does. It sets category featured image as post featured image. And it did that perfectly. What I suggest is when we add category list using wordpress default category block in pages, If these category images show up there.. Then that would be amazing .

Automatically changed all post featured images to one that you set up for the category.

Thanks for putting this together and supporting it. I'm testing with it for now on a project, will donate if we send to production. This plugin is much simpler than many that I see out there and works with little to no intervention.
