Support » Plugin: Set All First Images As Featured » Set up featured images for scheduled posts?

  • Hi, I have tried your and a few other plugins. Yours works the best. For published posts at least.

    However, I have a problem. I have many scheduled posts on my WordPress website. They’re getting published on a daily bases and are visible at the top of home page. Every post has 1 image, which is uploaded to a separate folder via FTP

    I tried other plugins that supposedly autoset featured images every time a post is published, but they don’t work. So, all of my currently schedules posts are getting published without featured image.

    I then have to log in to a website every few days just to set featured images on them via your plugin.

    Can this be made a bit easier?
    Maybe set featured images for schedules posts instead of just published ones?
    Or maybe set up some kind of internal plugin schedule, for example it can check the posts daily/weekly/monthly and set featured images on those that don’t have one?

    I did something kinda stupid but it worked for what I needed…ish

    I changed all the ‘publish’ values in the includes/class-core.php file to ‘future’

    I got to that idea after I googled around a bit and stumbled onto this

    What it did was that basically now I was affecting the scheduled posts with your plugin. however, it processed only around first 500 posts and then it got stuck so I decided to stop the execution.

    I retried a couple more times, but it was always getting stuck somewhere around 500 posts mark.

    So, I guess this functionality could be implemented in the plugin as well. I’m not very good with PHP, but if I managed to get it to work at some capacity, I guess you can make wonders 🙂

    Hi rovad,
    Thanks for your feedback, I will take a look at this as soon as I can and maybe add options for this.

    Best regards,

    I also need an option to set featured image for scheduled posts. Add this feature please.
