    I'm building my auto news site using a theme that looks best with featured images but I can't seem to automate the process properly. Using Themeforest HotNews theme + WP-O-Matic to grab news. It grabs news but doesn't set it as featured image, dispite trying out multiple different plugins that claim to automatically set the first image in post as featured.

    Any ideas how to make it work? Thanks a lot

    Thanks for you reply but doesn't work for me either.
    WP-O-Matic can fetch and store the images on my server if they're directly included in the feed such as:

    It doesn't understand when they're attached in the feed such as

    The auto-featured plugins don't work for the small images from Google newsfeed.
    Anyone know a winning combination of theme + plugins to have a good looking autoblog?

    you need to work on the custom field and value if supported by your theme.
    Put image and value as {image} or {featured_image} or {thumbnail} whatever should support.
    Also you need to find that your image "upload" directory is chmod to "666" so it can be accessed the images on your server.
    If you are using autoblog with videos , use the "wp-video thumbnail" plugin to automate the feature.
    I will recommend using wprobot autoblogging plugin , its easy to use.
