First image as featured image

I am using sitewide tags to pull all post from child blogs into main blog.  The problem is that it won't pull featured images from one blog to another, however it will pull the image from within the post text itself.  

 

Is there a way to make the post image show as the thumbnail in the excerpt on the blog page rather than using the featured image?

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

You would need ot contact the plugin developer as this is a third party plugin and not created or maintained by us. 

 

You can contact the support here http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wordpress-mu-sitewide-tags

So, is there no way to call the first image for use as a thumbnail in the excerpt on the blog page in dms?

 

A choice to use either first image or featured image in dms for this would be nice as not all authors think to add a featured image.  Just a thought.

Do you have a link to your site so we can have a look how this is working?

The answer the plugin author gives is http://wpmututorials.com/plugins/post-thumbnails-for-sitewide-tags/

 

Does this make sense?  Please keep in mind that I don't know anything about coding.

 

Child blog http://ckmatthews.thesingleparentperspective.com/

Main blog http://thesingleparentperspective.com/

 

Featured image used in excerpts on child blog not showing on main blog.  They are not automatically added to the featured image section of the post created by the plugin in the main blog.

In the DMS section options for the postloop on the blog page, there's an option for allowed tags. Put in <img> and there and save, this will allow the image from the post to appear in the excerpt. Example - http://screencast.com/t/6j2ezIHzVnv6

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.
