I’m writing a script that will aid me in updating WordPress images.
Here is what I’m currently doing:
#1 – Upload image to wp-content/uploads/year/month
#2 – Create thumbnail (imagename.thumbnail.jpg|gif|png)
#3 – Insert post into wp_posts with:
#4 – Insert row into wp_postmeta with:
post_id: the current post id I’m messing with
meta_value: local path to file (/home/user/public_html/etc etc)
Everything is fine, except when I go to the Uploads section of WordPress, only the image title shows, no actual image. However, if I click on it and the click “View”, it links me to the post which contains a link to the image which is valid.
What am I missing here? I also tried adding the _wp_attachment_metadata to wp_postmeta as well, but that made no difference.
Any help is -greatly- appreciated. Thanks!
