#33457 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Fallback to first post image used when not having a featured image set

A lot of users will forget to set a featured image. Having a fallback to using the first image in a post as a featured image would be helpful.

But sometimes we just do not want a featured image. It's also possible to create this behavior easily on a theme.

Looks like a #wontfix ticket.

This should be an option in the API and not directly user facing. Let themes decide to fecth a featured image with a fallback.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Ok. This seems more like a theme issue then a core issue. Thanks for the feedback!
