Plugin / Automatic Featured Image Posts

Jeremy Felt



Automatic Featured Image Posts creates a new post with a Featured Image every time an image is uploaded. Through the plugin settings page, you can set the image to publish and assign itself to one of your other existing custom post types and/or post formats.

The imagined use case is to make managing a large number of photos through WordPress a little more interesting and a little more fun.

After uploading 10, 100, or 1000 pictures from an event or vacation, you and other users can go through and spend the majority of your time adding content, tags, and titles to your photographs rather than going through a monotonous process creating new posts over and over again.

Settings are available for:

  • Default Post Status (draft, pending, published, private)
  • Default Post Type
    • Default is the WordPress post.
    • Can choose any custom post type registered in your WordPress installation.
  • Default Post Format
    • Default is ‘standard’, which equates to none.
    • Other options are provided if registered by your theme

Filters are available for:

  • afip_new_post_title = Allow other functions or themes to change the post title before creation.
  • afip_new_post_category = Allow other functions or themes to change the post categories before creation.
  • afip_new_post_content = Allow other functions or themes to change the post content before creation.
  • afip_new_post_date = Allow other functions or themes to change the post date before creation.
  • afip_post_parent_continue = Allow creation of a new post when an image is inserted in an existing post.
  • afip_continue_new_post = Allow other functions or themes to skip creation of a post.

Actions are available for:

  • afip_pre_create_post = Runs immediately before each post is created for an image.
  • afip_created_post = Runs after each image load is processed.
