    I noticed an interesting quirk with the featured image. If I’m logged in as an admin and use the submit form, then the image is uploaded but not set as featured. I have to choose it from the Media Library to feature it. However, if I do the same thing not logged in then the featured image is setup properly.

    Thanks for reporting this, godthor. It definitely sounds like a bug. I have added to the to-do list for the next update, and will try to resolve any issue. In the meantime, please let me know if you discover any further clues, etc. Thank you.

    So, I just had someone do a submission and it was the same issue, image uploaded but wasn’t assigned as the featured image. This person wasn’t logged in at all, so apparently the issue is more prominent.

    I wish I had more details to help you out.

    Thanks godthor, the information is useful. Also, have you tried testing your current theme to rule out possible interference? To do so, you can temporarily switch to the default WordPress theme and then trying again. Likewise with your plugins, it would be good to verify that there is no conflict with any other plugins. I can link a troubleshooting guide if it will be useful for you.

    I did some more experimenting, not a theme test yet though, and discovered something.

    I have email notices turned on, and have the following in my settings:

    Here's a new tutorial!
    <p>
    Title: %%post_title%%<br />
    View: <a href="%%post_url%%">%%post_url%%</a>

    Now, if I follow that link, which gives me a preview of the submission, and then edit the article (edit in the toolbar), the featured image loads in properly.

    However, if instead of previewing it I click edit from the posts list (admin area), then the featured image is not set.

    Furthermore, I had done other testing and did a preview from the post list of the pending article, then clicked edit (like above), and the featured image loaded.

    So, it would seem the issue is with editing the article/submission prior to previewing it. I’m not sure if you have a hook or something that doesn’t fire without a preview, but that’s my deduction thus far.

    Yeah at this point it is sounding like a theme issue that I recall seeing once before. My best advice is to keep testing and also make sure to test your theme and plugins, just to be sure.

    You’re probably right. I’ll see what I can figure out, and if I find what my issue is then I’ll let you know.
