    I cannot figure out why the thumbnail image of the products that are auto posting do not show up. The image does not show up on the first page of the blog when i am using Woothemes templates like gazette or lifestyle , but it does once you click on the link. I need a thumbnail to show up on the first page. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I have the same problem with my blog.

    What I did is I installed youtube thumbnailer, it will grab/create thumbnails and put it in a custom field "image" which is what wootube is using but wootube wont recognize images hosted from a different server so i manually edit my posts and save the images.

    anyone please ? i tried those plugins but without success i guess i did something wrong.
    1. post-thumb revisited plugin
    2. post-plugin-library

    Here is my case:
    1-i am using WP-robot in a Wootheme template (Gazette to be exact).
    2-as we all know the images pulled from Amazon are not stored in our website hosting and i want them displayed as thumbnails in the home page automatically without go to the manual method by editing the custom filed which it will make no sense since the website is autoblog.

    I read a lot articles about this subject and i saw a lot websites using this technique using WP-Robot and Wootheme successfully like this one :
    Code:
    http://canonlensconverter.com/
    Code:

    And here is the resource articles that i found:

    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thank you
