Support » Plugin: Keyring Social Importers » Setting Featured Image (and more questions) on Flickr Import

  • Hi Beau,

    I’m trying out the Flickr importer to pull in my photos as individual image posts.

    Problem is, my theme relies heavily on Featured Images, and the importer doesn’t seem to be setting them. Is it possible to get it to set the featured image? So import the image as the featured image, AND within the post itself?

    Also, is it possible to pull in the image title as the title of the post, and the image description as part of the post content?

    Many thanks,

    Hi R,

    Nothing has changed since we had this conversation a few months ago I’m afraid.

    If you’re importing from Flickr, then the title and description should definitely be getting set according to the original Flickr photo (definitely working on my copy that’s currently running).


    Hi Beau,

    Thanks for the reply. I think you may misunderstand what I am asking re: the featured image.

    I want the image that is pulled in from Flickr to be the Featured image as well as being the image in the post itself. It currently isn’t setting the Flickr image to be the Featured Image else all of these thumbnails would have been populated on my Photography page:

    Is there a way to get it to do that by editing the code?

    Also, is it possible to edit the code to set how large you want the photo to be pulled in at? (ideally I’d like the full res version of the photo pulled across and then resized according to what it is within)

    Final question… when I click on the images to take me to Flickr, it’s not taking me to the right page, and it’s also suggesting photos from the wrong Flickr user. Any ideas why?

    Many thanks,


    Actually, if you look at that link I posted above, the photos are all getting pulled in at random sizes in different posts. Weird.

    To get the Featured Image set, you could probably use something like this:

    It sounds like somehow you’re getting the wrong photos imported — can you try clearing out everything and re-importing, so we can see exactly what’s being imported?
