Auto Post Thumbnail

    Nice plugin! Works perfect! Only missing one small, but important, function:
    Is it possible to create a cronjob? So that new pots automatically get a thumbnail for example every 15 minutes?

    I would like to have such a function, that will run the script every XX minutes.

    Thanks

    You don't need a cron for that. A thumbnail will be automatically created for new posts when you publish them.

    @Adityamooley that is not true in every case, I have to manually generate images most of the time using this plugin especially if yo are running auto blogs with some third party plugins. I was looking for how to make a cron myself to stop having to do this manually 4 times a day. It works automatically on some of my blogs but not one particular one regardless of what plugins i shut down it just wont run.

    That's strange. Because, the plugin has nothing to do with how the post is created. Technically speaking, the wordpress hooks that I am utilizing must be getting fired when a post publishes.

    Will it be possible to you debug a bit and find out whether the control is going to my plugin?

    Also, which third party tool are you using to submit the posts? I may be able to test with it.

    Aditya,

    Reading this topic reminds me I have an own script that inserts posts.
    If I use the wordpress's native functions to insert it (wp_insert_post($postdata)) , this plugin should also run with it with hooks or semthing?

    Thumbnails are created when i publish a post manually. But with autoblog tools it doesnt run.

    @obus3000 - Can't say much about your custom script. If you are directly adding the records in database then my plugin won't work. But yes, if you use wp_insert_post the hooks should get executed correctly.

    Now plugin doesnt work both with auto post and manually. At the first trying it runned with manually publish but not more. I deactivated all the other plugins to prevent conflict and tryied more: delete,reupload,reactivate both WordPress and Auto Post Thumbnail but the result is same. it doesnt work for me.
    Then i tried it on my local PC, amazingly it is runing with both autopost and manual publish on local.
    After this i decided to try it with a different blog. it worked for a few manual publish but no autopost. After doesnt work even with manually. I dont know what i am missing of this nice plugin.

    i have been tried to setting a thumbnail using wordpress "setting a thumbnail" section. And then i have removed it. After click update for the post the plugin has succesfully generated n thumbnail for this post using firt image in post. What does it mean? is there a ghost thumbnail before being set for the post?

    The plugin runs sometimes and doesnt run most times. Although i see a _thumbnail_id in database for a post, there is no thumbnail. When i try to send a post with an attached image, this plugin only create _thumbnail_id in database for sent post.

    I have this plugin running while utilizing WPMU. I import users blogs from my network to the main site via RSS. They upload images via the media uploaded, and when I import, I hoped this would generate the thumbnail, but it isn't. I've gotten it to work once.

    I am using the plugin FeedWordPress Syndication to import the RSS feeds
