A client of mine owns a website with 1300 posts and we bought Newscast for him and installed as well. However his out layout had post thumbnails on the home page listed from the first image added in the post. Now, in order for him to work OK, he has to:
1) Create a post
2) Add images to a post
3) Add featured image for the slider to work
4) Add post thumbnail for the images to be visible on home page
Is there any easy way adding a post to populate header slider + index home page? Also this preloader when image is not available would rather be default image, it's annoying when it is animated gif or something.
Also, as this is an old blog, is there a way (script) to drive all the 1300 posts through that process and assign the images in the post as post thumbnails and featured posts?
