Our posts have two different images that are specified, the standard featured image, which is displayed at the top of the page and a cover image which is then used in the body, the cover image has it's own field. How can I get the post grid to use the cover image instead of the default featured image? Is this something that can be done in the pro version? Thanks!

I am not sure how your second image is saved via meta field, if its save image url then you can directly, you need to add this code to your theme functions.php file

function post_grid_filter_html_media_extra($html_media){


  $loop_post_id = get_the_id();

// you need to replace 'meta_key_image_url' by your meta key
$meta_key_image_url = get_the_meta($loop_post_id, "meta_key_image_url", true );
if(!empty($meta_key_image_url ))
return '<a href=""><img src="'.$meta_key_image_url .'"> </a>';


}

add_filter('post_grid_filter_html_media','post_grid_filter_html_media_extra');

Let me know for more help.

Regards

Welcome to our forum.

There is a filter hook for thumbnail so you can filter the thumbnail HTML, please see the documentation.

Filters – post_grid_filter_html_media

Let me know if you have any issue.

unfortunately I have no idea what to do with this, I haven't done any programming in years so I wouldn't know where to begin, thanks, but I think I might have to look somewhere else, which is a shame as this plugin was the closest that came to actually working, except for the image problem, the others we tried just kept crashing
