Support » Plugin: Automatic Youtube Video Posts Plugin » Add Featured Image

  • I’m not sure if anyone else is having the same issue, but I was having issues where no featured image was uploaded. So I added this code to allow the youtube image to be uploaded via the url and added in the postmeta.

    Open this: core/parse.php

    Add this after line: 254 ( after the “WP_ayvpp_insert_post” function ):

    $last = wp_get_recent_posts('1');
    $url = "".$i."/maxresdefault.jpg";
    $post_id = $last['0']['ID'];
    $desc = "Imported from Youtube";
    $thumb_nail_id = $post_id + 1;
    media_sideload_image($url, $post_id, $desc);
    add_post_meta($post_id,'_thumbnail_id', $thumb_nail_id);

    Also ‘Comment‘ out line: 369 ( function update_post_meta )

  • Could you please include this in the plugin as an automatic option?

    By default AYVP has some odd workarounds (like store the YouTube ID in the _thumbnail_id field), and I’ve had some trouble supporting it in my Video Thumbnails plugin, but I just released an update that hopefully is fully compatible. It should download the image to your media library and set it as a featured image. Let me know if it works for you!

    Can you release an update regarding this issue? TQ
