Support » Plugin: Multiple Post Thumbnails » can't get get_post_thumbnail_url() to work

  • Resolved monkeykode


    I’m trying to set the secondary featured image as a background image, but when I use the function it only just returns:
    and not the proper url. Is this a bug, or am I implementing it wrong?

      <li style=”background-image:url(‘<?php if (class_exists(‘MultiPostThumbnails’)) : MultiPostThumbnails::get_post_thumbnail_url(get_post_type(), ‘secondary-image’); endif; ?>
      ?>’);”><?php the_post_thumbnail(‘post-thumbnail’, array(‘alt’ => get_the_title(), ‘title’ => get_the_title())); ?>
      <li class=”overlay”>

    Your help would greatly be appreciated!

    I want to get just the URL of a secondary featured image as well. I tested this a few times and it just doesn’t work. You are following the instructions perfectly.

    I just got it to work using another forum post’s info

    <?php $custom = MultiPostThumbnails::get_post_thumbnail_id(get_post_type(), 'second-image', $post->ID); $custom=wp_get_attachment_image_src($custom,'second image'); echo $custom[0]; ?>

    It brings in the full image but now I can’t seem to figure out how to bring in the smaller sizes. I will start another post to ask the question.
