    Wow, instant support 🙂 Thanks a million Jeff and your plugin is the best I’ve run across for this kind of thing.

    Happy to help! Thanks for trying the plugin 🙂



    Don’t know if it’s the right thing to do but I needed only one image to be sent and displayed directly as featured image. I edited the plugin like this:

    in user-submitted-posts.php

    I changed :

    add_post_meta($newPost, $usp_post_meta_Image,wp_get_attachment_url($attachmentId));


    if ($i > 0)
      add_post_meta($newPost, $usp_post_meta_Image,wp_get_attachment_url($attachmentId));

    Here is the recommended way of doing it:

    yoyos33, I can’t find your string in user-submitted-post.php.
    I’m using 20130104 version with WP 3.5.1.

    i used code from wp-mix .. i past below in function.php but it display now only one image in the post >>

    what if i would like visitor to upload 3 images

    // featured images
    set_post_thumbnail_size(130, 100, true); // width, height, hard crop
    // @
    add_filter('the_content', 'set_featured_image_from_attachment');
    function set_featured_image_from_attachment($content) {
    	global $post;
    	if (has_post_thumbnail()) {
    		// display the featured image
    		$content = the_post_thumbnail() . $content;
    	} else {
    		// get & set the featured image
    		$attachments = get_children(array(
    			'post_parent' => $post->ID,
    			'post_status' => 'inherit',
    			'post_type' => 'attachment',
    			'post_mime_type' => 'image',
    			'order' => 'ASC',
    			'orderby' => 'menu_order'
    		if ($attachments) {
    			foreach ($attachments as $attachment) {
    				set_post_thumbnail($post->ID, $attachment->ID);
    			// display the featured image
    			$content = the_post_thumbnail() . $content;
    	return $content;

    To display images in posts, you’ll need to use either WP’s built-in template tags or the template tags included with the plugin. Please read the readme.txt file for everything you need to display images in posts. Thank you.

    Hi Jeff,

    I followed the instruction as per link (wp-mix). but then the image showed at not only as features image also at content of post. mean it double images(same image).

    How can I set only at features image without added it at post?
    hope you understand my poor english.

    Hi adammuaz,

    It sounds like your theme may be including the featured image, so adding the code would cause a second featured image to be displayed.. (but it’s just a guess). To determine if that’s the case, try using the code with the default WP theme (currently Twenty Twelve).

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for reply. I did use the default theme.but it same.
    check at my test site.

    My target is to display only feature image without display image at the post. hope you can help me. thanks alot!

    function autoset_featured() {
              global $post;
              $already_has_thumb = has_post_thumbnail($post->ID);
                  if (!$already_has_thumb)  {
                  $attached_image = get_children( "post_parent=$post->ID&post_type=attachment&post_mime_type=image&numberposts=1" );
                              if ($attached_image) {
                                    foreach ($attached_image as $attachment_id => $attachment) {
                                    set_post_thumbnail($post->ID, $attachment_id);
    add_action('the_post', 'autoset_featured');
    add_action('save_post', 'autoset_featured');
    add_action('draft_to_publish', 'autoset_featured');
    add_action('new_to_publish', 'autoset_featured');
    add_action('pending_to_publish', 'autoset_featured');
    add_action('future_to_publish', 'autoset_featured');

    Hello Jeff,
    I have been working on getting your plugin to display images for the last 3 days w/o success. The closest I have got is getting the image to display in the user submitted post but all other post types display a duplicate of the featured image for that post.

    I realize you have supplied template tags but not sure which files they belong nor where in the php they should be placed, for I am not a php developer. I am trying to implement the example provided on WP-Mix for displaying attached images.

    My single.php file looks as so:

    [Moderator note – too much code to post here please see: ]

    the first bold section seems to display the first image, the next bold php (inserted from wp-mix) is inserting the 2nd image within the post. I have tried numerous things.
    Any help is apreciated.
