• It would be nice if we could set the following as options:

    Default to current date for post Y/N – right now it always defaults to this and if you schedule the post, instead, then it does both. I’d prefer to turn this off.

    Template for Source. I’d like to be able to specify what automatically shows up for the source.

    Featured Image: It would be nice if the plugin picked up the image from the metadata. Currently, the post image has to be in the post to be picked up.

    Turn OFF ‘Don’t Forward’ option on Post Edit screen. I don’t use this and would love to be able to turn this off.

    Option to have SOURCE included at the end of the content instead of a separate metabox.

    Include LH NOMINATE THIS into your code so we don’t have to install that plugin as well.

    Default to current date for post Y/N – right now it always defaults to this and if you schedule the post, instead, then it does both. I’d prefer to turn this off.

    What do you mean by “does both”?

    Template for Source. I’d like to be able to specify what automatically shows up for the source.

    Do you mean something like what’s being suggested here? https://wordpress.org/support/topic/add-feed-name-after-source-when-publishing/ In that thread I talk about the possibility for a longer-term admin option, and give some workarounds for the time being.

    Featured Image: It would be nice if the plugin picked up the image from the metadata. Currently, the post image has to be in the post to be picked up.

    Can you give more details? What is “the image from the metadata”? Are you referring to a post that enters PF via the Nominate This bookmarklet?

    Turn OFF ‘Don’t Forward’ option on Post Edit screen. I don’t use this and would love to be able to turn this off.

    Do you mean you’d like the ability to set it to ‘Forward’ by default? Or are you happy with the default behavior, you just don’t want the dropdown to appear at all?

    Option to have SOURCE included at the end of the content instead of a separate metabox.

    Can you say more about the reasoning behind this? Is it because the editing experience is poor?

    Include LH NOMINATE THIS into your code so we don’t have to install that plugin as well.

    For my own reference: https://wordpress.org/plugins/lh-nominate-this/ Can you say more about what this plugin does, and how it either complements PF, or does some specific thing better than PF does?

    It defaults to “Publish future post immediately” but when I edit and schedule for a future date, “Publish future post immediately” does not deselect. So I end up publishing the post immedately but with a future date. I’d like to change the default to schedule.

    Yes. That would do nicely.

    Featured Image: It would be nice if the plugin picked up the image from the metadata. Currently, the post image has to be in the post to be picked up.

    Can you give more details? What is “the image from the metadata”? Are you referring to a post that enters PF via the Nominate This bookmarklet?

    Yes, a post entering PF thru the bookmarklet – that post will likely have metadata with an image that goes with the post.

    I would like an option to not have the Dropdown appear at all.

    Option to have SOURCE included at the end of the content instead of a separate metabox.

    Future proofing really. If I stop using PF I would like the source to be preserved in the content itself.

    Maybe I was mistaken. I thought the PF plugin required the LH Nominate This plugin.

    I’m sorry to be obtuse, but I still don’t know what you mean by this. I suspect that perhaps you are unhappy with the way that WordPress itself handles scheduled posts. My understanding is that, when you change the publish date to a future date, the ‘Publish’ button changes to ‘Schedule’. See https://imgur.com/a/6MOsEI7. PressForward doesn’t change the way that this process works, nor does it have any functionality related to scheduled or future posts. But I may well be misunderstanding you.

    Yes, a post entering PF thru the bookmarklet – that post will likely have metadata with an image that goes with the post.

    Thanks for the clarification. Images that appear in the body text use the original src attribute – ie, they are hotloaded from the source site. In contrast, featured images would need to live on the local site. This distinction means that PF would be automatically pulling in a potentially large amount of image content, which can cause problems with storage space, with NSFW content, with intellectual property, etc. I feel uncomfortable adding this to PF itself. However, it could probably be done by a third-party plugin, if you had the resources to hire someone to do it.

    I would like an option to not have the Dropdown appear at all.

    This is a pretty niche request and I don’t see a pressing need for an admin option. However, I’m glad to add a filter to make it possible to hide it. It will be available in 5.4.0 https://github.com/PressForward/pressforward/issues/1137 Use:

    add_filter( 'pressforward_show_link_to_source_dropdown', '__return_false' );

    Future proofing really. If I stop using PF I would like the source to be preserved in the content itself.

    Thanks for this. To me this was the deciding factor on whether to roll back the feature. https://github.com/PressForward/pressforward/issues/1136

    Ah, so the problem is on WP’s side. Gotcha.

    Yes, a post entering PF thru the bookmarklet – that post will likely have metadata with an image that goes with the post.

    Thanks for the clarification. Images that appear in the body text use the original src attribute – ie, they are hotloaded from the source site. In contrast, featured images would need to live on the local site.

    Not really, if you look for this

    <meta property="og:image" content="https://i0.wp.com/amazingstories.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/mr-breakfast-review.jpg?fit=331%2C500&ssl=1" class="yoast-seo-meta-tag" />
    	

    You’ll see it’s one image and it’s hosted on the source site.

    Thanks for the dropdown filter. How soon should we expect to see version 5.4.0?
