Can't grab Featured Image with Autoblog

I'm trying to use the autoblog plugin to pull in posts from to our main site at

I can pull the text in just fine, but the plugin will not pull in the featured image with the post. Any ideas?

    Hi @Andrew,

    Welocme to the WPMU Dev community.

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    Have you activated "Featured Image Import" Autoblog Add on from the menu Admin -> Auto Blog -> Add-ons?

    The addon imports feed item featured image into the media library, attaches it to the imported post and marks it as featured image.

    After installing it make sure you have not selected "Don't import featured image" for Featured Image Importing option in Auto Blog Feeds as sidplayed in the attached screenshot.

    Hi @Andrew,

    Thanks for your reply and sharing me screenshot of settings.

    Can you try adding the following code in your theme's functions.php file:

    function featuredtoRSS($content) {
    global $post;
    if ( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) ){
    $content = '' . get_the_post_thumbnail( $post->ID, 'thumbnail', array( 'style' => 'float:left; margin:0 15px 15px 0;' ) ) . '' . $content;
    return $content;
    add_filter('the_excerpt_rss', 'featuredtoRSS');
    add_filter('the_content_feed', 'featuredtoRSS');

    That should force the featured thumbnail to be used in the feeds.

    From your screenshot it seems you have activated both image add-ons( Featured Image Import & Image Import ) As only one should be active at any one time can you just deactivate the Image Import addon and check it.

    Best Regards,
