Doesn't work on older posts (5 posts)

    Hey Otto,

    I was testing out your plugin and came across the same issue I have with my code (http://bavotasan.com/2011/create-black-white-thumbnail-wordpress/). It doesn't work on older posts due to the fact that wp_upload_dir() only stores the most current uploads folder. So older posts will get a "file not found" error during the imagefilter() process. Can you think of any solutions?

    The plugin only works at the time of the image being uploaded. It doesn't adjust old images that already exist.

    It doesn't work if I try to upload a new image to an older post. That is where I encounter the error.

    I can confirm this issue. I emailed Otto about it on the 11th, and have got no response.
    Basically, if you do the following, you won't get an image:

    • Create a Page
    • Upload and set a featured thumb and publish page ( = ImageFX producers new thumbnail correctly)
    • Remove featured thumb and delete if from the gallery.
    • Upload new thumbnail ( = No new thumbnail created by ImageFX).

    So, basically you can't set a thumbnail publish the post/page, then remove it and try another one. You only get one shot at it per page at time of creation.
