Support » Plugin: Featured Video Plus » Conflict with Post Thumbnail Editor

  • Hi,

    I last wrote asking to have the featured image populated while creating a draft post. This is working great, but now it’s wreaking havoc with any custom thumbnails that I’ve cropped using the “Post Thumbnail Editor” plugin:

    I realize you’re not the author of that plugin, but thought I’d write anyway. What’s happening (and this isn’t 100% consistent, but happens about 98% of the time) is that I’ll input the video URL, click on the featured image, run post thumbnail editor to crop the image how I want (for various thumbnails and image sizes), then save the post. The custom croppings won’t be preserved when I save. I think via ajax the featured image is continually being overwritten by the original source thumbnail coming from the video api.

    Sometimes it will be preserved if I publish the post, then go into media, find the image, and crop it there, but if I go back in to the post and edit it, it usually loses all custom croppings.

    Let me know if I can explain that better..

    Hey again 🙂
    I just played around with the combination of the plugins on a fresh install – couldn’t reproduce your problems yet.

    What I did: Add new post, paste Vimeo or YouTube URL into the Featured Video box and let AJAX do it’s magic. When the Featured Image appeared I clicked the link for the Post Thumbnail Editor. A new windows opened, I cropped the image, ticked post-thumbnail. Crop and save. Close tab. Now back in the new post editor nothing did change. Clicking on publish refreshes the page and the cropped image appears as featured image as it should.

    Tested the same stuff also when editing a already published post. Crop thumbnail, save, refresh edit page, cropped image appears.

    The AJAX request only is fired when you paste an URL and then blur the input field (meaning leaving the input with your text-cursor). On-save the plugin also just attempts to do stuff when the value of the featured video input is different then the video already registered.

    And btw: Whats the blog you are using this on? Would like to see the plugin in the wild 😉
    Regards, Alex
