Post Thumbnail Editor
[resolved] Thumbnail editor won't load when trying to edit while adding a featured image (12 posts)

    Hi,

    When I am setting a brand new featured image, there is a "post thumbnail editor" link that shows in the same window. When I click on it, nothing happens. Then I click on "set featured image" button, and I see another "post thumbnail editor" link on the main edit post page, and that one works.

    The issue is that the first "post thumbnail editor" link that shows in the overlayed featured image chooser doesn't seem to be working.

    Thank you for reporting this issue.

    This issue should be solved in the next update (I have a fix), I just have to find the time to push it out.

    Hi everyone,

    I am also having trouble with my images. The thumbnails to my posts do not load. Instead they have that evil blue box with question mark.

    Can anyone help advise who to resolve this tormenting issue?

    Many thanks in advance!

    youngwildandbroke, start up a new thread (this one is resolved), and try to provide some more information. (Here's a good starting place: http://sewpafly.github.io/post-thumbnail-editor/editor/#support)

    @youngwildandbroke - On that link I referred to earlier there are some "in-depth" instructions on the different configuration options (http://sewpafly.github.io/post-thumbnail-editor/editor/#usage).

    The short version is that you can upload your pictures like normal (using the wordpress interface) then modify their thumbnail crops using this plugin. In order to get the cropped thumbnail into your post you need to have a theme that supports post-thumbnails. (Or you can use another plugin of mine called "Post Thumbnail Extras") (See http://sewpafly.github.io/post-thumbnail-editor/extras for more information).

    @sewpafly

    Thank you again for help. But you might just abhor me now. I used Post Thumbnail Editor and cropped image and clicked little floppy disc icon to save. But still no thumbnail.

    Then I downloaded Post Thumbnail Extras. I went to Setting->Media and click green plus sign. Still nothing. I am for sure an idiot and doing something wrong here.

    Try to enable the debug mode (Settings → Post Thumbnail Editor) and try cropping again. You can see what the current thumbnails look like on the "view" tab. Also, in the settings page make sure your check the box to save the debug output to a file. After you try cropping, go look in this file to see if there are any error messages.

    If you are using chrome or firefox try looking in the javascript console (ctrl+shift+j) for any error messages.

    Maybe it's time to start a separate support thread?
