Featured images for post types without editor can't be used by other types
|Reported by:||jleuze||Owned by:|
If a featured image is added to a custom post type without the editor enabled, it shows up in the media library and other post types can use it as a featured image, but it can't be added to the post. The "Insert into Post" button is missing when you browse to the image to add it.
I ran into this problem with my own plugin Meteor Slides, but the issue isn't specific to my plugin, it can be reproduced with any custom post type.
I used the example in the Codex to test it, and the problem was the same as with my plugin. I tested this with both 3.1.1 and the nightly of 3.2 and the issue was consistent in both versions.
