[Resolved] Can't set featured image

  • I can’t set a featured image for my testimonials. Everything looks correct, I can choose what image I want and everything but when I try to save the featured image it doesn’t work. The image doesn’t appear in the “box” and if I save the testimonial the image doesn’t show under Image either in the list over testimonials.

    For pages and post it works but not for testimonial.

    Sadly, I’ve been able to duplicate this.

    However, if I click Save Draft or Publish after selecting the Featured Image, the thumbnail shows up. Ah, I remember, I put in an Ajax check. Yup, disabling that get’s all working again. Next week’s release will have the fix.

    I hadn’t noticed this before because I’ve been using http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/drag-drop-featured-image/. You can try that for now as a work-around until the next release.

    I had same problem and the Drag-drop featured image didn’t work for me. It works on posts and pages but not on testimonials widget (yes, I activated it in the settings, lol).

    I’ll hold out until new release (which is awesome that you follow the great philosophy of release early, release often!) but wanted to inform you that the workaround doesn’t work.

    If the work around isn’t working and you need featured image showing up immediately, then…

    1. Open up testimonials-widget/testimonials-widget.php to line 84.
    2. Change…

    public function init() {
            if ( ( defined('DOING_AJAX') && DOING_AJAX ) || ( defined('DOING_AUTOSAVE') && DOING_AUTOSAVE ) ) {

    3. To…

    public function init() {

    That works perfectly Michael! Thanks!

    Im having the same problem. I’ll probably wait on the update. Keep it up!

    had the same issue and despite not being a coding expert, this was really simple and worked first time, thanks!

    I’m glad the fix works.

    A new release will come out by Monday. I try not to do my rapid releases anymore due to complaints.

    If you really need the latest, download this http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/testimonials-widget.zip.
