I just installed a fresh copy of wordpress v3.4.1, using the default themes and plugins along with Auto Post Thumbnail.
I added a few posts which includes an <img src="IMGURL"> and ran Auto Post Thumbnail.
I waited until the progress bar completed and no images showed up under the media tab.
However, my upload folder shows a bunch of new files with funky file names and no extensions. Additionally, they are all 50 bytes in size.
Here are a few examples:
I was able to replicate the problem with a fresh wordpress v3.3 install thinking it may have been related to the 3.4 issues previously posted.
Lastly, I have no problems adding a featured image manually using the same external image source included in my posts.
Any ideas, or suggestions on how I might be able to resolve this issue?
Could it have to do with my server configuration?
any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
