New version 1.4.6 of the plugin had been released today.
New feature requested by one of users has been implemented. Now you can assign authors' pictures to the category. How does it work? If you assign Author as an image id to the category then post / page author's picture will be used as a thumbnail. If you have multiple authors posting in that category these posts will have their respective authors' pictures displayed as thumbnails.
These are requirements for this feature to work:
- authors' pictures must reside in either media library or NextGen gallery ( gallery name must be authors )
- authors' pictures file names in media library must follow this naming convention: author_id.jpg where id is author's user id ( example: author_12.jpg )
- authors' pictures file names in NextGen gallery must follow this naming convention: id.jpg where id is author's user id ( example: 12.jpg )
