    How to set a featured Image for posts when using a 3rd party gallery plugin on shoutbox? Just bought Premium Gallery Manager (from wptitans) and realized when i use it posts dont have their featured image. So whats the work around for this. Premium Gallery Manager uses short code display galleries

    Hey Guys

    I found this http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/drag-drop-featured-image/screenshots/ do you think i could use this as a work around for the built in Featured media? If so i could use the Premium Gallery Manager in posts pages while Drag & Drop Featured Image takes care of the Featured Image

    Hey!

    Actually Shoutbox should set the first “Featured media”/slideshow image as featured image. Kriesi deactivated the “set featured image” option because the first slide will be used as featured image automatically.

    Yea the issue is when Krisis Feature and what i mentioned have the same functionality. So when i use the Premium Gallery Manager there is no way set a Thumbnail for the post when the post appears on the blog slider they appear to blank. So any work around for this issue. If i set a featured Image then there’s two slideshows on a page which no body wants

    In future maybe Kriesi can consider a update for all the people who are using other gallery mangers, by having option for featured images not run as slideshow on the pages since at moment its

    Image slideshow options

    Small

    Medium

    Fullsize

    Solution – adding none as a option

    So since this is gonna take some to implement is there any work round for me have featured images / thumbnails without these displaying in relevant post before the header as a slideshow

    Hi Artifactual,

    Try going into your functions.php file and find the following:

    if(!function_exists('avia_remove_post_thumbnails'))
    {
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    add_action('posts_selection', 'avia_remove_post_thumbnails');
    add_action('init', 'avia_remove_post_thumbnails');
    add_filter('post_updated_messages','avia_remove_post_thumbnails');
    function avia_remove_post_thumbnails($msg)
    {
    global $post_type;
    $remove_when = array('post','page');

    if(is_admin())
    {
    foreach($remove_when as $remove)
    {
    if($post_type == $remove || (isset($_GET['post_type']) && $_GET['post_type'] == $remove)) { remove_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); };
    }
    }

    return $msg;
    }
    }

    Change it to:

    if(!function_exists('avia_remove_post_thumbnails'))
    {
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    // add_action('posts_selection', 'avia_remove_post_thumbnails');
    // add_action('init', 'avia_remove_post_thumbnails');
    // add_filter('post_updated_messages','avia_remove_post_thumbnails');
    // function avia_remove_post_thumbnails($msg)
    // {
    // global $post_type;
    // $remove_when = array('post','page');
    //
    // if(is_admin())
    // {
    // foreach($remove_when as $remove)
    // {
    // if($post_type == $remove || (isset($_GET['post_type']) && $_GET['post_type'] == $remove)) { remove_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ); };
    // }
    // }
    //
    // return $msg;
    // }
    }

    Regards,

    Devin
