[resolved] Showing no thumb for video post (3 posts)

    The plugin works perfectly but when a post is video, the thumbnail shows up with 'no thumb'. How can I change this so that it references another image or doesn't show 'no thumb' at all and is blank?

    Thanks.

    There are 2 options:

    1) for YouTube, there is some code that will allow you to set a custom field that will automatically grab the thumbnail image from YouTube, and set it as the featured image.

    Do a search for 'wordpress grab youtube thumbnail' and something should pop up.

    2) manually take a screen capture and set it as the featured image.

    @kettlewell is right. At the moment this feature ain't available, but it's in the wish list.
    Closing.
