  1. Unzip
  2. Upload the unziped folder set-all-first-images-as-featured to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Go to Tools -> First images as featured


Images Linked Wrong URL

Okay, generated fetaured images from old posts first images bu everyone featured images url like /uploads/imageBLABLA.jpg

I have hundereds “broken linked” featured images.

Works but has small problems

You made exactly what i was looking for, thank you very much! Tried other similar plugins they are propose this feature as paid version.
After installing decided to write review as gratitude to your work.
So the problem one: If images located not in ../wp-content/uploads/ folder plugin generates an error:

ID: 4
Title: Find differences in pictures
Image: Problem with the founded image

ID: 5
Title: Find the difference - game 4
Image: Problem with the founded image

Nevertheless i guessed to copy all images to ../wp-content/uploads/ folder and they appeared as featured.

Second problem: Actually this is not a problem, only want to point you on one mistake. As you may see log contains “founded” word. Should be “found” this is an irregular verb.
