Support » Plugin: Other Posts » Need help with Other Posts Plugin

  • I like this particular related-posts plugin better than several similar ones, but I’m having one small issue that I’m hoping someone can help with.

    My theme does not use the typical upload-and-insert method of adding images, so they don’t exist as ‘attachments’ – rather they are added as a value in a custom field and then place in the appropriate spot with this PHP code:

    $values = get_post_custom_values(“Image”); echo $values[0];

    Thus the post images are not showing up where they should be with this plugin.

    I’ve tried a couple of modifications to the plugin.php file, but am not having success. This is the section of plugin.php that deals with the post image:

    function oposts_extract_image($post_id) {
    $attachments = get_children(array(
    ‘post_parent’ => $post_id,
    ‘post_status’ => ‘inherit’,
    ‘post_type’ => ‘attachment’,
    ‘post_mime_type’ => ‘image’,
    ‘order’ => ‘ASC’,
    ‘orderby’ => ‘menu_order ID’
    if (empty($attachments)) {
    return get_option(‘siteurl’) . ‘/wp-content/plugins/other-posts/images/empty.gif’;
    foreach ($attachments as $id=>$attachment ) {
    $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src($id, ‘thumbnail’);
    $image = $image[0];
    return $image;

    Can someone tell me how to modify the plugin.php file to use my custom field instead of looking for an attachment?

    Many thanks!
