    What good fortune finding this plugin. Pulling in RSS feeds as posts, this plugin solves the missing featured image problem.

    Of the various import methods, Google Images scrape is the most consistent, as title keywords won’t often turn up hits at Pixabay or Flickr, especially if your trying to respect copyright 🙂

    Google API method was a dead end for me. Sure, I understand the Google Dev console and have many many projects and associated APIs. But creating a Google Custom Search Engine, then getting an API too; which api? Any. Will a YouTube, Google Cloud, Google Maps API work? They did not in my tests. The author needs to ferret out and better explain how a user is supposed to meet those criterias.

    Thanks for you review ! 🙂
    About Google API method, as I said to agustin with his review I’ll try to clarify this process step by step with the next plugin update.
