I have just started to use your plugin. It imports the videos okay but does not allow the display of the posts image on the home page or the blog page see here http://theleanmindbodycoach.com scroll down to see blogs on home page

I can see the image on the featured image section but it does not show up in the blog or home page.

Please advise


If the plugin imports and sets the featured image on your posts than this is not caused by the plugin.

If you can grant me access to your WP admin I can take a look and see what could be going wrong. Please contact me privately from my profile page here: https://codecanyon.net/user/cboiangiu

I have sent you the log in details

I e-mailed you back a few hours ago. Just in case you missed it, here’s my answer:

Thank you for the login. I had a look and it seems that your theme might have an image size constraint for showing images. For some of the videos you imported YouTube returns image maximum size of 640×480 px. For these image sizes your theme doesn’t display the thumbnail for some reason. I suggest you contact the theme developer and ask about this. Please let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

I’m trying to update my plugin but i’m not sure exactly how to do this. After reading some of the comments I found that there are two ways of updating; 1] overwriting using FTP 2] automatically through plugins page

I’ve never updated anything using FTP and I rather do my plugin updates automatically when a new update is available. Would you please explain how I can achieve this?

Also it would be good idea to maybe have a page on your plugin’s site, with detail description on how to update using the two methods since it appears to be a very common issue for users. Thank you


Automatic update can be done like you do with any other plugin, from your Plugins page you should see the update notice for the plugin and should be able to click and update.

To update manually, download the plugin from your Envato downloads page. The download is a zip archive; save it somewhere on your computer. Once downloaded, extract the zip; you will end up with a folder named “ccb-youtube”. Next, using an FTP client, upload the folder in your wp-content/plugins folder. You will be asked if you want to overwrite the files. Choose yes and perform the upload.

This should be it, if you have any other questions please let me know.
