If the Listing has a featured image for the screenshot will the thumnail plugin get an image and use it anyway?
“If the Listing has a featured image for the screenshot will the thumnail plugin get an image and use it anyway?”
If I’m understanding you correctly, no.
The plugin will generate thumbnails for a listing if a featured image doesn’t already exist. It doesn’t add the screenshot as the featured image though.
Manually setting a featured image will cause the listing to use that image as the thumbnail.
Removing the featured image cause the plugin to re-create a thumbnail.
Featured image allows you to manually select an image – Used as featured image and thumbnail.
While the screenshot plugin will create an image based off of the plugin settings – Used as thumbnail.
Does this make sense?
Yes thank you for that answer.
I did take the screenshots and imported as a featured image on a different thread I explained how I did it for everyone else. The question was for if I reactivate the screenshot plugin would all my work go to hell :>
But I did decide not to use it since I will be manually approving all listings and making sure they have screenshots.
If you’re interested, and have a testing environment, then you can checkout a plugin with a slightly modified version of the screenshot plugin I’ve created.
Basically, it adds the custom key field (selected by in the Screenshot settings) to the Quick Edit screen along with a couple checkboxes to set as featured image or remove as featured.
You can kick it around and see if it does as you need/expect.
I’ll add one more image in the next post…
Let me know if you’re interested via customphix [at] gmail [dot] com and I’ll get it to you.
Will Do I don’t have a testing environment now . But if you need it tested I can set one up and test for you
At the moment I personally don’t have a use for it. But have seen various reasons for the need.
I have various test environments and have done minimal testing.
I put it together for you and/or anyone else that feel they could benefit from it and possibly relieve some headaches.
It’s up to you, either way it’s all good.
Just trying to help others when I can.
Here’s a short screencast (no audio) of it:
Looks excellent wish I had it 4 days ago :>
I will hold off for now but if I do another directory that need screenshot I will definitely look you up
thank you so much
