Support » Plugin: Broadcast » Featured Image not showing on broadcast

  • I’m using Broadcast from a child site of a multi site network to broadcast to other children sites as well as the main site. I initially had 3 sites in my broadcast network, the parent site and 2 other child sites other than the site I’m using to publish. When I pushed out the initial broadcasts, the featured images didn’t publish correctly. I had to go through post by post and delete all of the images from all 4 sites then reupload the images to the publishing child site, then rebroadcast, which worked. Now, I’m planning on adding a number of sites to the network, and didn’t expect an issue, but when I used Broadcast to hit the new sites, again the featured image didn’t publish correctly. I’ve figured out that if I go into the child posts and edit them, the featured image is shown, and if I simply hit “Update”, it pulls the featured image into the post, at least until I use Broadcast again on other posts, at which point it appears to break again.

    To answer the forthcoming question, I am super admin on the Main site and all child sites, so should have the appropriate credentials.

    Following is a link to my debug log:

    I see image 771 being the featured image and copied to each child blog.

    > Custom fields: Post has a thumbnail (featured image): 771

    The featured image should, therefore be working just fine. I see 771 is used elsewhere:

    ‘fpu-thumb-fld’ =>
    array (
    0 => ‘a:2:{s:9:”_thumb_id”;s:3:”771″;s:11:”_thumb_type”;s:5:”thumb”;}’,
    ),
    ‘tc-thumb-fld’ =>
    array (
    0 => ‘a:2:{s:9:”_thumb_id”;s:3:”771″;s:11:”_thumb_type”;s:5:”thumb”;}’,
    ),

    Those two custom fields are probably handled by two callbacks from somewhere: CZR_admin_init::czr_fn_refresh_thumbnail and TC_back_fpu::tc_refresh_thumbnail. Perhaps part of the theme? Do the above thumbnails work?

    No, they’re being loaded, because when I open the child blog, the theme displays them in the featured image spot, but they don’t display, so it seems they’re being loaded but not published. When I click publish on the child blog, they do display. This installation is going to have hundreds of child sites with over a hundred blogs published so far on the primary child site that need to be pushed out. I’m not looking forward to having to go through every blog on every site and hit publish.

    Thanks,

    I’ve found an way to resolve this issue (better than going through blog by blog and hitting “Update” anyways) for the current sites by logging into the child sites directly, then visiting the main blog page. This seems to force it to pull the featured images. Currently I have 12 sites, but I’m building out over a hundred more, so this is not an ideal situation to have to log into every child blog directly every time I push out a new blog.

    Getting back to this (rather late)…

    So logging in to the child site, and then visiting the main blog forces the child sites to somehow recopy the images from the parent site?

    Are the images not already on the child site? Are they getting new media IDs after the visit?

    This all sounds very weird, and not normal at all. Even with the various problems that caching might cause.

    We’re having a similar issue where the featured image comes over, all image meta, but the image does not attach to the post. We have a test environment with the main blog site and four sub-sites. We are using the sub-sites to populate some content onto the main blog site. When creating a new post on the sub-sites we broadcast to the main site and when we do a strange error 500 comes up, that is not logged anywhere I can find, and when we refresh the browser the post completes the posting process and shows up on both the sub-site and the main blog site as configured. On the sub-site the post contains all the post info as configured, tags, categories, featured image but on the main blog site we get everything except for custom fields and featured images. The images do show up in the media library as well. Here is the debug file, http://www.frstest.com/wp-content/plugins/threewp-broadcast/ThreeWP_Broadcast.php.51373363.debug.html

    Thanks,

    I may have some input on this now that I am seeing what looks like missing database info. We’re using hyperdb to load balance between multiple databases. Hyperdb causes a few other issues with access in creating new sites in our multisite environment. Something to do with utf8mb4 and correct db access. Please let me know what you find on your end and I will update as I find more info.

    Thanks,

    Carlos
