    Great Justin. Do you sleep? I’m gonna test this thing out tonight. What you describe this plugin does accomplishes about 95% of what I’m looking for:

    If a custom field value thumbnail exists, fetch it.
    If a custom field value thumbnail doesn’t exist, fetch the first image embedded in the post body (use the size specified by Wordpress’ thumbnail setting).
    If neither a custom field value thumbnail exists nor an image in the post body, fetch the first photo attached to the post.

    This would sort of act like a post thumbnail manager. The second part might be the toughest. What do you think?

    super plugin Justin, this is going to be VERY usefull

    by default in wordpress the thumbnails are named : nameand the size of the photo, like 2lw006_1-128×96.jpg for example. do you know if there is a way to have the size removed and replaced by thumbnail, to have the name like 2lw006_1-thumbnail.jpg.

    thank you very much

    it´d be nice if your plugin could also look for an imagen with a certain “alt”. That would enable you to select what picture you want for the thumbnailed view even if it´s not the first image on the post content and you aren´t wise enough to figure out the link for an uploaded file.

    Alt can be controlled via the image´s description.

    I use Flickr for image hosting, as I think many people do. Is it possible to add another condition that looks for a Flickr image link and returns the Flickr thumbnail code? That’s a regular thing, if the image is 04958509.jpg then the thumbnail is 04958509_t.jpg or 04958509_s.jpg

    I have implemented this plugin on a beta magazine site however, what i have noticed is that when I have 6 new articles appearing on the front page, each with their own 50×50 crop image, it seems that if I attempt to reuse an image from one post to another using the media gallery, it will not display the inline image from the post using the plugin here. It will only output the “no image” comment in the resulting code. Thoughts? If I insert a new image into the same post and resave, it pulls the image out fine, just can’t seem to reuse images.

    My users hotlink to their image hosts (flickr, Picasa, zoomr etc) using those sites “embed URI” html in the posts…

    How do I get the thumbnail to show up for those posts? I’ve tried specifying a custom field key of ‘thumbnail’ and a value of ‘http://URItoIMG’ but no joy, as it’s not an attachment to the post…

    The embed img code displays fine in the single post view, as expected, it’s just parsing HTML, but I would also like to be able to display a thumb of this image (CSS “resize” of main hotlinked image).

    Any ideas?

    Reading through your extensive notes here I find myself very confused as to how to go about getting this to function.
    Later in your post you mention that you’d be happy to help implement the plugin. I followed the link to find a link to an entirely different site with a signup process that didn’t seem to want to let me sign up.

    Hi, could somebody give me a helping hand? I downloaded the plugin, installed it but I dont know how to customize it… all I want is for the plugin to pick up the first photo from the post and use the photo for the IMAGE Custom Field to generate the front page thumbnail. Can somebody tell what I need to change in the plugin? So that each time when I write a new post and upload a new image the plugin to pick up the image and use it as thumbnail for the front page carousel. I use the Mimbo Pro theme, has a magazine look, and adds images to a carousel and thumbnails to the front page but at the moment I have to add the link of the image at every new post in the IMAGE CUSTOM FIELD, would be great if I can use this plugin so that the CUSTOM FIELD picks up automatically the first photo from the post.

    First of all, thanks for the wonderful plugin. This is being immensely useful in a new site I am developing. I just wanted your advice on a couple of queer behaviours I noticed.
    1. The custom field “product_image”contains an image that I want thumbnailed in its excerpt. However, I observed that instead of taking only the image from the custom field, the plugin takes the first image that was uploaded for the post – whether custom field or in the main content area.
    2. I get only the full-size image if I use get_the_image_link(array(‘product_image’),’thumbnail’)
    but get the thumbnail if I use get_the_image_link(array(‘product_image_thumb’),’thumbnail’)
    However I don’t find any documentation about this anywhere. I am completely puzzled….
    What is it that I am doing incorrectly?
    Any inputs will be appreciated.

    Great plugin, it replaced what I was trying to do in scripts and hit a wall on.

    Problem – made a new post today, selected an existing image from the media gallery and completed the post. The image shows in the post correctly, but on the excerpt where I am using get_the_image_link I get the default image.

    If I load a new picture, or in this case, reload the prior picture, it is seen as a new image attached to the post and your script catches in fine.

    But when adding existing pictures, the issue occurs. This is a common practice because while I use images for every post, writing about a company or product where I just grab a logo or stock image, I would have to reload it for it to be detected properly.

    Hope this helps and once again thanks. I was trying to do this in a long nested if and could not getting it working right, and this is a simplier apporach.

    so i’m reading this enormous thread and see that you point at least a dozen times to a support forum that has NO clear support thread for this plugin!!

    could you please provide a direct link to ANY material that will assist in usage without requiring users to go through a registration and join process just to find some simple text?

    there would appear to be roughly 10+ comments asking the same question, “i want to pull the first image and stick it into a field for this magazine layout” etc – but not one is answered, just endless links to support forums that have NO clear path to the answer! and registration required? must join a club? i’m at a loss…

  82. dave
    dave Published |

    i hear you – and thank you for offering such an incredible free plugin and free themes – but what i ‘m talking about is the basic need for documentation, like a link to ‘documentation’ or a readme, or the ‘answer in the forum’ – asking people to click through and register for something is tedious, and for what? do you *need* to collect user data to support free themes? that’s the inference…registering for premium support totally makes sense, you make money doing that, but free access to forum postings offering free support for a free plugin requires registration? just doesn’t make sense to me…it would be like if apple pointed to support docs and then you realized that you had to create an account at apple.com just to read them for free – that’s the nytimes.com model of 4 years ago, and it’s why sites like bugmenot.com exist!

  83. dave
    dave Published |

    i hear you on the wp comments threads for support – most are insane and impossible to follow! and yes, the documentation makes sense to me, and i understand the theme templates and calls, it’s just all a little unclear above where you repeatedly steer people to support forums as if there will be answer at the link when in fact it’s a top level link to a registration service – perhaps a more suitable reply would be “the documentation is on this page, if it doesn’t make sense then you can pay to join the support forum for more advanced support on the plugin or themes i offer” – sometimes crystal clear helps!

    *** Wordpress users need to know that this is a plugin for high level wordpress users. It is not your average upload and use it plugin. The creator of an new template I just purchased recommended using this plugin which brought me here.

    I installed it and looked for some step by step instructions or settings or a readme file and was completely lost, I visited your forums as suggested, realized it was paid support and decided I’d delete the plug in and continue to do my thumbnails manually and then boom the plug in started working automatically putting thumbnails in my preview posts. Fortunately, my template has some of the needed code pre-integrated so there was nothing for me to do.

    I begrudge you nothing for expecting to make a few dollars off of your hard work but you really should make it clear at the top of this post that the plugin is for expert users and you offer paid support for non-experts. It really is a nice plugin if you can figure out how to get it working but newbie wordpress users should be forewarned.

    Hello Justin,

    I wanted to use this plugin on one of my client’s site. The problem is that all images that are used in the posts are embedded via the Nextgen Gallery plugin. I used it to that plugin to centralize all the images / slideshow. In the latest versions of the plugin you can just pick a picture from you slideshows to embed in your post just like you would doing with the default wordpress gallery.

    Now, unfortunately your plugin doesn’t recognize the images ‘attached’ to a post via de Nextgen gallery. I don’t know exactly how your plugin finds the image in the blogpost but I saw in the source code that Nextgen embeds the images on a different way then the wordpress gallery (it uses a shortcode [singlepic])

    If you now feel challenged to also make your plugin compatible with images embedded via the Nextgen Gallery.. I want stop you doing so 😉 It would even make me smile.

    Hi, Justin.
    I am wondering if you submit this plugin to wordpress plugin directory.
    Because I use the old version of this plugin and I know about this update ONLY because I subscribeb to your feed via email.
    In the plugin page itself, it doesn’t have any notification to update the old plugin.
    In my opinion it would be good if this plugin have that auto update feature like all other plugin, just incase if I missed out one of your emails later on.

    Nice work!
    Keep it up.

    I start using wordpress at version 2.3++ something around that.
    If I not mistaken, the auto update feature exist at the nearest time when I’m start using wordpress.

    What I mean by “auto update” is something like the notification in the plugin page and also the link to download, install and reactivate the plugin from wordpress interface without the need to download it from plugin homepage or wordpress repo and manually upload it to our hosting with the ftp.

    I once submitting my theme at wordpress, they emailed me after 2~3 days after the submit. They email whether me they reject or accept your application.
    Most of time they reject, because they don’t like sponsors link. 🙁
    That’s theme, and I just never yet creating any plugin to submit there…

    Hey Justin,
    You do awesome work!

    2 quick things though:
    It’s really awesome that there is a link to the post, but a link to the image would also be extremely beneficial, as it would be picked up by shutter-reloaded, lightbox and such.

    After installing the latest version (0.4) The readme file completely took over my site and I had to remove it. I’m not entirely sure what happened, but I had to delete the plugin completely just to login to the dashboard.

    Not A Niche Published |

    Funny, I was just looking for that feature for the image link, like Scott just asked for.

    @Justin, I can understand your frustration with WordPress Plugin Directory, I doubt that they will let you on there, since your Plugin is linking to your Theme Club and support is only for people in your Exclusive Theme Club. We had the same problem, we created a Plugin, which is beneficial for the WordPress community, but since it is not GPL conform we cannot be on there. Like yours.

    Oh, and don’t expect to get an answer, we didn’t even get a notification when they threw us out of the repository.

    Last thing, I always wondered why you never have a favicon on your blog. You have such a quality blog and great posts, it would be beneficial if everybody could recognize your blog among other open tabs immediately. A little branding cannot harm 🙂

    Great Plugin!

    hi Justin, this is a great plugin. I installed it on a WPMU site with tonnes of images and it worked incredibly well. I have a suggestion to make it even better. On posts with many images, sometimes the author re-arranges the order of the photos or replaces photos, then it is difficult to manage the thumbnail produced. I know you can enter in the key of thumbnail and value of the url, but it is a bit of work to track down the correct url for the thumbnail. my suggestion is to add a panel in the post admin that shows all the images attached to that post (and even use the image scan to see if there are others in the post content) then allow the user to click which one should be the thumbnail.

    is using the image scan resource intensive? if I disabled all the other parts of the plugin and just used the image scan (which totally rocks by the way!) will it slow down the site when looking at a page with 10-20 thumbnails.

    thanks again for your excellent plugin.

    Get-the-image for WPMU usability would be amazing!

    What I need to accomplish is getting Get-the-image working with this List-all-recent-posts plugin:

    This grabs all recent posts site wide and displays them – but it doesn’t grab images. If somehow the could be added in the source for list-all-recent-posts and achieve the effect of grabbing recent posts site wide with the get the image functionality it would solve all my problems!

    Some please look at the code and help….

    Thanks! 🙂

    After having a heck of a time trying to get thumbnails to work in WP 2.7 (which they are automatically supposed to do and do not), I finally came across your plugin.

    I’m not a php expert by any mean, but can get my way around a little with good instructions.

    Your instructions on the code and how to add it to the php file were very detailed.

    I just wanted to say a big “THANK YOU!” It works! I’m using a magazine style theme and could not get thumbnails to auto-resize.

    Your plugin did the trick.

    This Plugin makes a bloggers life so much easier. Many thanx for that.

    I just wonder if it wouldn´t be a good idea to enhance it in a way that it is able to produce thumbnails or even larger images of a size that can be defined. Such as 150px wide and 50px high without killing the aspect ratio. I guess Timthumb can do this but it doesn´t work so automatic.

    Any plans into this direction?

    This is a really really great plugin. But I have a question about what I can do to use this is in my category template with multiple posts. Basically, I want to use the attachment function to grab one medium image and three thumbnail images from every post to display on the category page as a sorta lead-in to each post. All was working really well until this happened, check it http://fmu.fireintheattic.net/topics/projects is showing different images than those in the post, should be 1,2,3,4 but it is showing 16,15,14,13.

    Basically I uploaded two many images while creating a post. I didn’t intend on using all 16 images, just kinda lazy use of the uploader. Anyway, It cycles through all images in the gallery and for me, it posted the last images uploaded even though they weren’t in the post.

    Hope that works. Justin, thanks again for this great plugin!

    Maybe I’m a bit slow – and maybe this is a long-looked-for solution. Have I understood it correctly, that this plugin will generate thumbnails as shown eg. here: http://www.dolcevita.no/liguria/

    It generates a thumbnail from the first image in the post (in our case always placed below the “more” tag) and displays it on the blog’s post page (in our case. eg. the Liguria page). It is triggered by a plugin + a piece of code inserted in the appropriate templates.
    The big question: Will Get the image do the job?
    The smaller question: Is it even possible to make the thumbnail link automatically to the post it’s picked from?
    (The plugin I’ve used so far – Post-thumb revisited – is no longer updated, so we really need a replacement)

    MY issue I’m showing a post in three different spots:

    Featured on Homepage with a Medium sized image
    Full Post with Large sized image
    Side Bar – sub featured with Thumbnail sized image.

    I have set up 2 custom fields:
    medium_img (to link to the image to use here /2009/04/image_name.jpg)
    large_img (to link to the image to use here /2009/04/image_name.jpg)

    thumbnail just picks up default if this is used – ie first attached image.

    The 2 custom fields don’t work they just show the post title in and image block as a link?? Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

    If I leave everything as thumbnail in the array it picks up the first image and shows that everywhere at the three different sizes but I really want to be able to show different images in each instance if required.

    @tonestar – I had the same problem when renaming the keys, not sure why. Since I am displaying only one image you can just rename the default keys inside the plugin code if you line. You will find the following code at the top of the plugin :

    Hi again
    This plugin is great!
    I I’ve understood correctly, I can just insert this code: into a template (eg above and the plugin automatically generates a thumbnail from the post’s first image – which is displayed on the blog page. Simple and easy.
    The most tricky part seems to be reading the ReadMe file well enough (well enough to set the ‘image-scan’ in the plugin file to ‘true’).

    Sorry if this became a mini-tutorial :o) – I’m just happy to find an easy way to replace Alakhnor’s “Post-Thumb” plugin which is not developed (and has kept me from upgrading WP) beyond v2.5.1. It even links the thumb to the post!
    And it looks like all I have to do is to replace the Post-Thumb code with the Get image code in my templates.

    Just one question:
    If I’ve understood things right, the plugin really doesn’t generate any thumbnail but displays the original image in miniature? If so, it is really important to make that image as light-weighted as possible.
    Thanks a lot,

  168. Derek

I noticed that when I use in the article some image that is not from my media files, the “Get The Image” doesn’t get to generate the thumbnail. I mean, if I use in the article/post an image from an link/external url, it doesn’t generate the thumbnail and just shows my “default-thumbnail.gif”.

    Does anybody know if is there any way to get to generate the thumbnail when using images from external link/URL?

    Can this plugin be modified simply, so that does the following:

    – looks for all the subpages of the current page
    – gets the first attachment image from those pages,
    – posts a list of links to those pages, each with an image.

    So if I am on the instruments page, it can look at all the subpages, get the first image attachment of that page (or from a custom field if thats easier) and write a list out using that image as a thumbnail. This is so the user can see a menu of subpages, with an image.

    – Bass
    – Guitar
    – Drums

    I can figure out how to get_attachments of a page, but not from a subpage.

      I’m doing it right now on my site. Very simple. Its using Justins awesome plugin (which I use in almost every theme I develop) and a slick query I’ve discovered.

      First set the current page as the parent… ID; ?>

      Then query for all the pages that have this page as a parent…

      Then use Justin’s awesome plugin…

      Then end the while…

      The query is the key….

He’s got variables that you can add into a template such as: %POST_EXCERPT% but would one know how to create something such as: %POST_THUMB% that could work with your plugin to put into the post rating script to pull a thumb for let’s say my header to display the highest rated post of the day with a thumb?

    I’ve downloaded the plugin “Get The Image” which does almost all I need. It takes the specified thump picture if it finds it, and if not, it looks in the post for other pictures. It also grabs the excerpt text from the excerpt field. This is where I have a problem… I want it to grab the text before the more tag.

    Is this possible?

    Summary: I want Get The Image (or any pluigin like it) to grab the specified thumbs picture, or any picture it can find in the post. And then I want to have the text that comes before the more tag to be displayed – NOT the text from the excerpt field.

    Dear Justin,

    Thanks for the plugin. In the code defaults setup, you have allowed for a default image. This is great for having a placeholder image waiting for the images to be uploaded (eg: for my friend’s interior designer portfolio – she has a long lead time before starting a project to when final images can be taken).

    It would be great if next time you do an update, this could be configurable so it does not get overwritten when an update goes through.

    Justin, this is very useful indeed!

    What would also be useful (if you take requests!) would be a plugin that does basically exactly what this plugin does, but then instead of having to call , the plugin would instead go back through all the posts and simply set the returned image as the “featured image” (using 3.0 terminology) for each particular post.

    Correct me if you think I’m wrong, but wouldn’t doing it this way also allow the user to use the default wordpress functions like “the_post_thumbnail()”, which would prevent them from having to change existing code. They could basically just update their entire site in one fell swoop as if they’d been using featured images all along.

    Thanks for your consideration!

    Hey, you should make it possible/easy to extract the URL of the images in the next version. Here’s why (it’s a really good reason):

    With the Facebook Like function and the new version of Digg coming out, it would be helpful for this plugin to be able to automatically extract your images of choice, so you would be able to cleanly and neatly put them in the and functions. That way, the plugin does all the work for you and your fans get nice looking images when they link to your page on Facebook and the like.

    I seem to remember slightly reworking the plugin to do this, but now I can't remember what I did. Just a thought.

    Get the image does not display images for posts pulled from other blogs on the main site, only the posts created on the main show images.

    I’m not a php whiz, but I am sure this would be a quick upgrade for someone of your talent.

    Thank you Justin for this kick-ass plugin. I am experiencing some very strange behavior. First, perhaps I am misinterpreting what image_scan intends to do, but I see no difference between ‘image_scan’=>’true’ and ‘image_scan’=>’false’ when I insert get_the_image() into my loop I am getting images returned (on posts that do not have a featured image), regardless of which parameter i pass.

    secondly, but related to that, the plugin seems to return the same image for posts that have no image set as featured, attached, nor in the content. It is like it finds the image and then doesn’t flush it for the next post in the loop. Then if a later post has a different image in the content that image is still usurped as a thumbnail.

    you can see it here:

    nothing is found in the 1st post, so no image as it should be. An image is found in post 2 and post 3, so thumbnail is produced. No image is in post 4 and yet it continues to show the thumbnail from post 3.

  323. Kathy

    gosh i wish i could delete my previous post. get_the_image was just pulling stuff from the custom field ‘thumbnail’ like it is supposed to do.

    Hello Justin, I have a problem with your plugin.

    I installed and configure it correctly, I am using the code in the index.php file:

     'custom-image', 'image_scan' => true, 'size' => 'medium', 'width' => '120', 'height' => '120', 'default_image' => 'http://www.mysite.it/default-cn.jpg' ) ); ?>

    The problem is that sometimes, it doesn’t show any thumbnail (first image attached at post) or the default image that I set.
    I don’t understand what is the problem.

    For example: on the first page of my Blog, it show only 2 thumbnails on 10 posts; on the 4rd page of the Blog, it works well and show all the thumbnails.

    1 Page: http://www.cellularinotizie.com

    4 Page: http://www.cellularinotizie.com/page/4/

    In other posts, also if there is the image attached in the article, it doesn’t show any image on the Homepage.

    One of the best plugins ever. For sure.

    One “bug” I’ve come across (not sure if it’s really a bug or not):

    I have get the image placed in 2 spots on my site: within my content div and sidebar div.

    I’ve assigned different classes to the images via ‘image_class’, content-thumb and sidebar-thumb.

    If the same post appears in both my content div and sidebar div on the same page, the image in the sidebar is assigned the class “content-thumb” and not “sidebar-thumb” like it should (and how the rest of the sidebar images are).

    If I turn the cache off for the sidebar thumbs, they are assigned their proper class. So everything is merry.

    I’m not sure if this is the way the cache feature is supposed to work, in that the class is copied as well, but it might be something to look into.

    Hello Justin,

    I am using the GIMB (google image) plugin to let users put pictures in their post, it looks like this:

    But when I go to my frontpage with on there post avatars (featured images) it doesnt display the image.
    It only does when I manually choice the add feature image button and do it via that.
    Why doesnt it fetches the picture? Using the WP way is to difficult for my users.

    Because I cant post anything on your forum, this reaction …

    Justin, I have a question about part of your plugin. This line of code:

    get_children( array( 'post_parent' => $args['post_id'], 'post_status' => 'inherit', 'post_type' => 'attachment', 'post_mime_type' => 'image', 'order' => 'ASC', 'orderby' => 'menu_order ID' ) );

    You specify order as ‘menu_order ID’. I’m confused as what menu_order means when it comes to attachments. I don’t see any place where you can set it from within the WordPress admin.

    Hi – I’m using this great plugin with a theme from solostream, and it’s been cool. Except it started to display the wrong thumbnail no matter how many times I re-selected it. So I had to delete all my images – delete them again from the image folder via ftp – then I de-activated the plugin.

    I re-activated it and re-placed the images. Nothing! Then I complete deleted the plugin and reuploaded it. All I get is an image placeholder. Any tips here?

    Hello Justin! I hope I can achieve what I want with this plugin. The problem what I’m facing now is that I can’t see options for it. I’m using the most up to date Wordpress on PHP5. Is there a conflict with the new Wordpress?

    Hi, is it also possible to let the plugin choose a pic from a folder storage of pictures? i mean that it will not need any picture added specifically to the post, but instead choose a random or selected picture from this set folder, searched or fetched based on keyword for example, or simply random pick?

    this possible? im looking for this plugin for some of my many posts submitted by various writers who i dont want to bother with adding pics but some system that adds them automatically. anyone please?

    Hello Greenshady!

    From programmer to programmer I wanted to thank you for the get the image plug in! You are the man! Very simple and love it!! 🙂

    Your “readme.html” helped a great deal in using the correct code in getting the image to show on all posts on my front page @ http://techblog.codeobsessed.com

    …if you scroll all the way down you will see that your light weight plug in has retrieved the image from each post that I called from the loop in my current new index theme.

    Are you currently working on any new plug ins or developing this one any further?

    By the way, I as looking at your “get-the-image.php” file and I appreciate all your comments explaining each line of code!

    Again, thanks for constructing an awesome simple useful tool that I have not found anywhere else….

    Hey Justin,

    Quick question. Right now “alt” produces the title of the post. I want to make it so that it calls “Main Image”. How do I do that?

    I just started to make a WP site with WP-ClearVideo. I added the ‘Get The Image’ plug and it worked great except for one page that did not work at all. Then, I was having other troubles with the Theme, so I deactivated all the plugins to see if that was a cause.
    My problem: When I re-activated ‘Get The Image’, it does not show up any more in my previous nor in my new posts. Any ideas how I can make it show up again? I deleted it and reinstalled…nothing.
    Thanks in advance.

    I use Pagelines and NextGengallery :
    I am having an issue with thumbs not loading in a carousel

    I have set featured images in each post linking into the specific image in nextgen
    when I make a carousel using a category there are no thumbnails ( if I make a carousel with a nextgen gallery there is)

    Will your plug-in grab the image from nextgen (via the singlepic shortcode) or the featured image in a post and make a thumbnail?

    I’m wondering about the buttons that come up on the bottom of lightbox images… I see FB and Twitter buttons, but I’d love a Pinterest button there too. I’m using Get the Image on a theme called UDesign which runs PrettyPhoto.

    I’m trying to figure out:
    1. Are the buttons part of Get the Image or something else?
    2. If so, is there a way I can add a Pinterest button?

    Great Plugin!
    I’d like to resize the image with squared cropping , i have old post with images in the content and it takes so long time to edit one by one.
    I’d like to edit the script to have squared images in the home and not all with different size like now.
    Can anyone help me?

    I tried to use it but it’s not working for me.

    As far as I get from everything it’s supposed to work and if there’s no other image except the image in the post it’s supposed to extract it from the post and set is as a featured image? Is that correct?

    If yes, why it’s not working?

    Justin? HELP 😀
