featured image

  1. looking for a less clunky way to add a 'featured image' to a post from my phone.

    current method is upload the photo using the wp app, then go to mobile safari and sign into my site - then make the image featured from there.

    there has to be a better way, right!?


  2. There is a better way. I am using a plugin that takes the first image in my post and makes it the featured image. I am pretty sure it is a plugin but it might be incorporated into the theme I am using. Either way it works and saves me from doing the Safari work around.

  3. Any idea what plug-in that is? Thanks

  4. Yes, try the plugin called. 'Auto Post Thumbnails'. Here is the description says...

    Auto post thumbnail is a plugin to generate post thumbnail from first image in post or any custom post type. If the first image doesn't work it will automatically search for the next one and so on until the post thumbnail is inserted.

    If the post thumbnail is already present, the plugin will do nothing. If you don't want a post thumbnail for some post with images, just add a custom field skip_post_thumb to the post and the plugin will restrain itself from generating post thumbnail. The plugin also provides a Batch Processing capability to generate post thumbnails for already published posts. A new menu item Gen. Post Thumbnails will get added under Tools menu after this plugin is installed

    Good luck! Works great for me.
