Automatically Add Featured Images To WordPress: 3 Plugins

Have you ever bought a magazine theme for your website only to realize that you had messed up and failed to add featured images to your posts properly. Featured image issues are not a big deal when you are dealing with just a few posts. But if you have thousands of posts with featured image issues, you will have to use scripts to fix them. These 3 plugins help you automatically set featured images for your posts and save time in the process:

easy add

Easy Add Thumbnail: automatically sets the featured image for your posts based on the first uploaded image. It works for older and new posts.


Auto Post Thumbnail PRO: a premium plugin that generates a featured image from the first image in a post or custom post type content. It can also generate thumbnail from popular video services.

Default Thumbnail Plus
: automatically displays default images for specific categories, tag, or custom taxonomies. It can also grab the first image per post.

Unfortunately, I can’t say these plugins are always perfect. But they can save you time if you are switching to a magazine theme and have not set up featured images for your posts already. Have you found better plugins for this job? Please suggest them here.
