Support » Plugin: Link Library » Generate thumbnails not taking the Image assigned to the link

    Hi Yannick,
    In Link Library each post has assigned images (Image URL field).
    When I run “Generate Thumbnails and store locally” with the option checked “Give priority to images assigned to links if present”, Thumbnails get generated. But the thumbnailed images are not the images originally assigned to the link but a screenshot of the homepage.

    Thanks
    Hilario

    This is the intended functionality. The thumbnail generation function is meant to facilitate the creation of small screenshots of web site home pages. There is currently no function to reduce the images of images assigned to links in Link Library. Users are expected to upload images at the size at which they want to see them displayed. Alternatively, you can use CSS to resize images when they are shown on the site.

    I am selecting the “Give priority to images assigned to links if present” Checkbox. The image assigned to the link is NOT the image of the home page.

    I can understand that if I had NOT checked the checkbox then it would get the image of the homepage. But I have checked the checkbox. So i would assume it would get the image assigned to the link, correct?

    Also I am not looking to resize images. I want to store the image locally.

    Thanks

    No worries. I decided on uploading the images to imgur and supplying the links in the csv file to upload to linklibrary.
    Keep up the good work on the plugin.
