    Hi ori0n and first off, welcome to WPMU DEV!

    When posting an Image, the plugin uses a thumbnail of that image and when posting a Link, you’ll have a thumbnail selector to choose the image to use.

    The Video post wouldn’t be able to pull a thumbnail at this point though, and a regular Post wouldn’t include a thumbnail, similar to Facebook.

    Greetings ori0n :slight_smile:

    to further clarify what David is saying and my understanding of this particular plugin – the Status Plugin can only pull thumbnails from posts or articles that contain graphics and if they contain more then one graphic you can choose from those graphics which one will be a thumbnail.

    I hope this helps :slight_smile:
