Support » Plugin: SVG Support » Unnecessary post meta for post types that don’t support featured image

    I’m sure this isn’t spesific to a plugin, but the I’m seeing this issue with WP Libre Form.

    In my submissions (it’s a custom post type), I see meta key “inline_featured_image” with a value of 0. Since the post type hasn’t declared featured image support, there shouldn’t be anything related to featured images.

    Fixing this should be fairly easy, just do something like this post_type_supports(get_post_type($post_id), 'thumbnail') in your action.

    While the bug isn’t severe, it’s annoying and it’s cluttering submissions. Code relevant to the post type: https://github.com/anttiviljami/wp-libre-form/blob/master/classes/class-cpt-wplf-submission.php#L41-L74

    I grep‘d my whole project directory and the only files pointing to that string belong to SVG Support.

    Hi @k1sul1,

    Can you please test the dev version of the plugin and see if it sorts out your issue?

    I have wrapped the update_meta with a conditional like you mentioned to check for thumbnail support on the post before updating the post_meta at all.

    I hope this works… It seems to be for me, but wanted to make sure before pushing it to the stable version.

    Cheers
    Ben

    PS. WP Libre Form is a cool plugin!

    Hi, and sorry for the delayed response. I did get a notification, but it was buried under 700 other emails on my secondary email address.

    I installed 2.3.9 (with the link you provided) on a fresh site and now there’s no extra meta fields, so I guess it’s fixed 🙂

    About WP Libre Form: it is! Most of the time Gravity Forms or Ninja Forms is a “bit” overkill and not-so-developer friendly, so if the client doesn’t want to edit or add forms by themselves it’s my first pick.

    Thanks for letting me know 😃
    I’m glad it works for you and will push out the update real soon.

    Totally, I agree. I’ll make sure to use it in those cases also.

    Cheers
    Ben
