Unfortunately, this plugin is not working for me. No image was displayed, after setting up everything.

I am an IT professional with 40 years experience programming in many languages, developing websites, poring through millions of lines of code to fix bugs, etc. I have also written a dozen manuals about software for the regular user. So if anyone is "technically oriented" yet able to judge what has technical requirements, it is me. I found this plugin to be presented as "easy" to install and use, but it has been anything but that, and still does not work. The functions on the back end work great, I can select the images I want to apply to each category, they display in the categories list on the dashboard. However the images do not actually show up on the public blog, and none of the suggested fixes the developer made in the past to those with similar issues is working. The developer is nonresponsive, he has not responded here on the forums nor to direct emails. Do NOT use this plugin unless you are a world class expert on wordpress, and odds are it wont work anyways.

It works 100% on my end. Although I got to tweak this line $meta_image = get_wp_term_image($term_id); with $meta_image = get_wp_term_image($term->term_id); Thanks Author!

It’s a nice and simple plugin but it would be better if it used the standard media library selection button and overlay. Perhaps get some inspiration from https://github.com/daggerhart/taxonomy-term-image on how to add this.
