Wordpress plugin that auto inserts images?

6 replies
  • |
I have a blog that I've done a bulk upload of posts to using a plugin. The theme I'm using takes advantage of wp's featured image quite nicely, but I really don't want to edit every post individually.

I've found plugins that will use the first image in the post as a featured image automatically, but not one that will insert an image in a post. I would love to be able to upload a folder of niche relevant images, have the plugin randomly chose one and bulk add them to each post.

Has anyone seen something around that does this?

    None that I have heard of. Did you try exploring WordPress › WordPress Plugins Where did you get the content from?

    Thanks, yes I've been all over that for the last couple of days and haven't been able to find anything. My content varies from plr articles to originals sent to me in text files from my writer. Either way, I find bulk uploading saves me a heap of time, but now I've hit this roadblock.

    I'm not sure if this will help but this plugin might be what you're looking for:

    "Yet Another Photoblog" at WordPress › Yet Another Photoblog « WordPress Plugins

    The above plugin can work with additional ones to boost its function. You can find those at the developer's page.

    Hope this helps.

    I'm looking for one too. Guess it may be time to write a custom or plugin.

    I've done this before with the WordPress › Get the Image « WordPress Plugins plugin and by adding code like this in the appropriate template file:

    <?php if ( function_exists( 'get_the_image' ) ) { get_the_image(array( 'default_size' => 'thumbnail', 'image_scan' => true, 'default_image' => get_bloginfo( 'template_url' ) . '/images/default_thumbnail_0' . rand(1,9) . '.png', 'width' => '100', 'image_class' => 'wp-post-image' )); } ?>
    It will then randomly display an image from that folder in the post.

    You can of course also do this without a plugin, by adding "random image" PHP code to your template.
