  • I have been having a problem using set nextgen featured image in a post.
    this is happening on two live sites – its really annoying
    I could not figure out why it was not working so set up a test site on my local xampp server

    you can replicate this very simply.

    fresh install of the latest WordPress with NextGen as the only plugin

    WordPress version 4.2.2–en_GB

    NextGen Version 2.1.0

    running on local server

    Theme : Twenty Fifteen

    Set up a single gallery with several images uploaded.

    create a new post
    enter title, content – do not publish or save draft
    click ‘Set NextGEN featured image’
    select the gallery
    click ‘show’ on the image I want to use
    with all of the defaults left ticked ( none, thumbnail )
    click ‘Use as featured image’
    it shows as ‘saving’
    then an error dialog pops up ‘The Page at localhost says : Could not set that as the thumbnail image. Try a different attchment.’
    click ‘OK’ to close the dialog
    click x at top right to close

    the image was NOT set as featured image….

    try again
    create another new post
    enter Title and some text content and publish ( this is the key thing here )
    click ‘Set NextGEN featured image’
    select the gallery
    click ‘show’ on the image I want to use
    with all of the defaults left ticked ( none, thumbnail )
    click ‘Use as featured image’
    it shows as ‘saving’
    get the same error again
    X out of nextgen back to post
    the featured image is NOT show as set – BUT
    if I now click update it shows the correct featured image as set?

    Now test editing a post with a NextGEN featured image set
    click remove featured image
    then set nextgen featured image
    .. same as above .. error etc click back to post
    it does NOT show the featured image as set
    BUT if you click update the image is shown set ?

    so it looks like NextGEN is not correctly updating the post edit page when coming back from selecting the featured image
    any chance of getting this fixed?
