    I discovered other areas of the site (also using ‘Category Featured Images – Extended’) were working OK…when I looked at them I seen there was no ‘Image Width’ defined in WP Show Posts.

    Removing the image width setting fixed the problem.

    Just posting here incase it’s useful info.

    Thanks

    Apologies – full title was stripped out, probably as I included “<img src(unknown)” in it. Unfortunately cannot edit to make it more descriptive.

    Apologies for the slow reply – but THANK YOU for your patience and the code – it worked 🙂

    No ‘featured image’ exists for the posts…this is my biggest problem.

    Is it possible to get them from Yoast?

    thanks

    Thanks for guidance. Looks like the meta names are:

    _yoast_wpseo_opengraph-image
    _yoast_wpseo_opengraph-description

    Didn’t get a reply from Yoast…but found these:

    wpseo_opengraph_desc
    wpseo_opengraph_image

    via https://gist.github.com/amboutwe/811e92b11e5277977047d44ea81ee9d4#file-yoast_seo_opengraph_remove_subset-php

    Are they what I’m looking for?

    Thanks

    For these lists the data would be used instead of the defaults ie.

    * Instead of using the Featured Image from the post, it would use the image from meta property=”og:image”
    * Instead of using the Content Excerpt from the post Excerpt, it use the content from meta property=”description”

    The reason is because a plugin I am using to generate Quizzes does not have a Featured Image, nor an Excerpt for each Quiz… WP Show Posts finds the Quiz posts OK and can list them, which is great… but ideally I’d like to display an image (and an excerpt if possible) and because it allows me to add the meta properties via Yoast I thought this might be the easiset way to accomplish it without amending the quiz plugin.

    Thanks

    Update: I’ve also just installed the Beta version of WP Show Posts as I see the “Overlap” might be a better place to start. Thanks in advance.

    Hi @Tom @Adrian

    I am trying to do the same thing for events: I have a custom field (date) and would like to sort by it. I also currently use the short code.

    Just checking how you would recommend accomplishing this @Tom (or how you did it @Adrian).

    Thanks
