That would not help in this case. It’s just more work overall. If you review what I’ve described to you – you’d understand. I don’t think you quite see what a problem this is. This is what I would have to do since you don’t have a way for bulk edit to use the default settings.
Due to the number of posts – the following will have to be done six times as I must break all the date ranges down to no more than 3 years each.
1. Set any post without a featured image to a default image.
2. Set any post matching category ‘x’ to its default image. Overwriting existing featured image. Repeat 12 times for each category.
3. Replace the featured image with the first image embedded in the post.
…and again, this has to be done six times to get all the posts. Bulk Edit times out if I try to do more than three years worth of posts (due to the posting volume on the sites)
…then I have to do all of it three more times so all four sites are done.
Do you see the problem now? Do you see why presets won’t help?
