Auto Post Thumbnail
[resolved] Thumbnail Not Generated from Flickr Post (4 posts)

    Great little plugin, but it fails to create a thumbnail when a post is sent from flickr via "xmlrpc."

    Only fix is to manually go to the post and update.

    Any suggestions around this would be helpful

    If the publish hook is not called the plugin will not work

    Found a very simple fix for this.

    Added

    add_action('xmlrpc_publish_post', 'apt_publish_post');

    to my functions.php

    Now any posts sent this way will automatically create a thumbnail as well

    Thank you so much for sharing the solution, kiwiot!

    Maybe an added tip for anyone struggling with sharing images from Flickr to WordPress: when you're on a photo page, on the bottom left there is either an Optin to the new experience or an Opt-out and Feedback button.

    Sharing to WordPress is known to NOT work when the new photo experience is active. Until they fix that, opt out of the new experience and the share to WordPress feature should work again.

    After that, you can use kiwiot's fix combined with this plugin to have thumbnails automatically generated for Flickr images that you post to WordPress from Flickr.com.

    The size of your thumbnails in WordPress can be defined under Dashboard > Settings > Media.
