Featured Image box not showing (7 posts)

    Thanks for the great plugin, although I am having some problems of adding featured image when adding a new testimonial. The "Featured Image" box doesn't appear in the lower right corner. I tried this plugin on my other theme and it works. I wonder if there are some conflicts with the theme I use.

    I don't have a featured image box either - so I don't get any images in my widget. Great plugin - will be better when everything works.

    I don't know if it's related, but the client information fields are not updating when the testimonial is published.

    Hi Chill,

    Just to let you know I found a quick way around the feature image issue. You may use the testimonial submission form to upload a picture. Although that way, you would be able to change the picture from wordpress once you've uploaded it. However, you can ftp to change the picture.

    I think this issue is due to using a theme which does not support featured images, and within the plugin, I am not actually checking to see if featured images are supported or not, so this is a bug with the plugin, and I will look at fixing this with the next version release.

    In the meantime, you can add this to your themes functions.php file to enable the featured image box:

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    Hi devnz,

    I had a go by inserting
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
    in functions.php, it still won't work. The theme does have thumbnail boxes included.

    Yes, my theme also has add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); already in the function.php. In addition, there are other post types in this theme that include the featured image box, that work. There's some other bug

    Thanks dandange, I had figured out the submit-testimonial angle. Just seems like it would be good to have the testimonial page in the dashboard working too.
