i’ve followed the directions and looked on forums here. there is no “cover” field, but there is a “custom cover” field. i have tried putting the gmedia ID for the image i want to use as the cover (literally just the number “18”) I have tried putting the jpg url in that field. i have tried the wordpress media id for that jpg. nothing works. the field doesn’t save the data… every time i exit edit mode or reload the field is blank.
it would be nice if the files pulled the artwork that was already attached to the mp3, but i also want to get this working!August 24, 2016 at 08:13 #7404
Custom Cover field accept only Gmedia image ID (from Gmedia Library). After you enter the ID number to Custom Cover field you should click outside of the field (it will loose focus) to save modified data. “Last Edited:” info should be changed to current server’s time. Then you can reload page to see the result.
I’ll add easier way to set covers in the future. Also I’m working to use artwork from the audio metadata.August 24, 2016 at 12:07 #7405
if it wasn’t clear, i’m sorry. that’s exactly what i’m doing and it’s not saving the information to the database. i enter the id of the gmedia image (only tried the others just to rule them out) then the little think-wheel spins, it stops, but when i reload the page, back out, sign out… anything it doesn’t keep the id number i just typed in the field.
here’s while loading the date “in”
and after it’s “saved”

There is something wrong. Custom Fields with ‘_’ symbol before the name should be hidden.
I need temporary admin access to your WP Dashboard, so I’ll try to solve your problem.August 24, 2016 at 12:35 #7409This reply has been marked as private.August 24, 2016 at 13:26 #7410
Fixed, some other plugin or theme makes protected meta to be unprotected and shows it in the custom fields. I’ve fixed it and now Covers works.August 24, 2016 at 14:53 #7411
how did you fix it? did you alter one of the plugins? and which plugin was it? wordfence maybe?August 24, 2016 at 16:26 #7415
I’ve changed only Gmedia files. I’ll add this fix to next plugin update.August 25, 2016 at 21:37 #7423
thank you so much!August 26, 2016 at 12:59 #7429
i spoke too soon. it’s still not taking changes, this time with a photo gallery. no matter how many times i tell it what module to use it insists on using phantom. won’t write anything else to the datebase. that, and it insists on using the default query as well.August 26, 2016 at 13:23 #7430
it may have something to do with the preview not updating when you make changes to the module or query fields.

Update plugin to the latest version (1.8.71). It should fix your problem.
