Plugin: WordPress Popular Posts and Thesis (4 posts)

    I've been trying for hours to get the shortcode for WPP to display thumbnail images in my thesis based site, but with no luck. I need to pull the thumbnails from a custom field, rather than as an attachment. I've tried several hacks, but with no result. Is integration with thesis possible? It would be greatly appreciated.

    (BTW, I'll gladly beta test if you don't happen to own thesis. The image information is stored in the "thesis_post_image" custom field.)

    Any help would be appreciated

    Not sure why, but soon after I posted this the thumbnails started working as they should have. Is the delay normal?

    Hi Jerry,

    My plugin uses The Post Thumbnail feature to retrieve your posts' images, as I'm sure you have already noticed.

    Fortunately, my plugin doesn't need much to work with any theme so it should work with Thesis. The only thing is, as stated before, it doesn't check for custom fields to get the thumbnails so people usually hack the code to get that working.

    I'm not familiar with Thesis' framework, but I could add an extra option to allow users select the source of the image: Post Thumbnail, first image on post, or a custom field (which should make things easier for you in this case).

    I've been planning to do this for a while, however my day job as programmer also keeps me quite busy most of the time. Will get back to this once I get some time.

    I've figured out a temporary work around (you know until you can implement it *hint* *hint*)

    If you use the "Featured Image" Option in your post the thumbs will show up in the Featured Post widget. And it shouldn't mess anything up.

    The only issue I have is... 100 posts to go back through to implement this on *ugh*.
