    I’m moving my wordpress site over to a new theme, and purchased this extension so i can set the featured image on all previous posts so that they appear on the blog page.

    – Take the first post image from current site domain, copy and add it to the media library if not available there.
    – Overwrite featured images:
    – Set the first image as featured image,
    – Consider only posts without any featured image
    – Overwrite featured images
    – No selected filters

    There are 186 posts, but the preview shows only 26 images in “Future Featured Images.”

    Note – This site is not yet launched and still behind a wall on my web designer’s server – using foxyproxy plugin to access.
    The preview shows only a few

    That is because only 26 were found “without any featured image”.

    And after moving a site there could be no match between the new site address and the image paths pointing to the old site if these path were not changed while moving.

    Almost none of the posts have a featured image set – probably 5 or fewer.

    Part two of your reply suggests that after the new site goes live and the links are updated I could run the extension and it would work the way I was hoping?

    Martin Stehle

    Yes, that is correct. The other way would be to use the option for external images. The plugin would ignore images from the current site address and would look for images from other addresses.

    What did you mean with that?

    Your first reply said that the reason only 26/186 posts showed “Future Featured Image” in the preview:

    That is because only 26 were found “without any featured image”

    But none of the posts had a featured image set when they were originally published. I’ve only added a few now as a test. The new theme shows featured images as thumbnails on the blog page, which is why i want to go back and add them.

    Once the new site is launched all the links will be the same – so if I can get this extension to set the featured images it shouldn’t cause any problems.

    In the preview list it shows “no image set” in the “current featured image” column and also in the “future featured image” column.

    May I take a look at the backend of your site to find the reason? Please mail me the login credentials to info@quickfeaturedimages.com.


    dear support
    whatever i do using this plugin pro (with or with out filters)
    trying to set an image (from media library) already containing in article, to be a Featured one i get the following message

    Allowed memory size of 1077936128 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32 bytes) in ………../taxonomy.php on line 1434

    this happens even with one image selected from media library

    all server settings are set to the max regarding MB time execution etc.

    Hello Panagiotis, the error message points to a reason somewhere in the taxonomies (so the plugin is not the reason). Do you have a large number of tags or categories? If yes please try to increase the memory space.
