Require Featured Image



Simplify Your Editing Life

Requires your various post types — as specified in a simple options page — to have a featured image set before they can be published. If a lack of featured images causes your layout to break, or just look less-than-optimal, this is the plugin for you.

Rather than forcing you to manually enforce your editorial standards of including a featured image in every post, if your contributors fail to add a featured image to a post before publishing it they’ll simply find it impossible to publish.

Setting up the Plugin

By default it works on the “Post” content type only, but you can specify other content types, or turn it off for Posts in the new options page in your left sidebar: Settings > Req Featured Image. Simply check and uncheck the appropriate types, hit save and you’re all set. Happy publishing!


Activate the plugin. No other steps are necessary to require featured images on Posts only.

If you want to require featured images on a different content type, or allow Posts to be published without them simply go to the settings page in your left sidebar: Settings > Req Featured Image. Check and uncheck the appropriate types, hit “Save”, and you’re all set. Happy publishing!

Regenerate Thumbnails



Regenerate Thumbnails allows you to regenerate the thumbnails for your image attachments. This is very handy if you’ve changed any of your thumbnail dimensions (via Settings -> Media) after previously uploading images or have changed to a theme with different featured post image dimensions.

You can either regenerate the thumbnails for all image uploads, individual image uploads, or specific multiple image uploads.


  1. Go to your admin area and select Plugins -> Add new from the menu.
  2. Search for “Regenerate Thumbnails”.
  3. Click install.
  4. Click activate.

WP Vegas


A fullscreen background slideshow plugin based on Jay Salvat’s Vegas Background jQuery Plugin. You can see a working demo at

What Can This Plugin Do?

You can use it to

  • Create a fullscreen slideshow
  • Create a fullscreen background (single slide)
  • That’s about it… It does use the new media uploader and you can drag and drop your images to rearrange them which is kind of cool.

This plugin does one thing and one thing only, to keep it small yet fully functional.

For a list of cool new features in version 2.0 check out the Changelog

About the Shortcode:

There are 7 parameters total that you can use with this shortcode. The ID being the only one that’s absolutely required.

List of parameters:

  • id
  • fade
  • delay
  • overlay
  • arrows
  • autoplay
  • poster


  1. Upload to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Use the shortcode [vegas id=”xxx”]
  4. Customize the slideshow using the parameters explained in screenshot #5


[vegas id="565" fade="2500" delay ="4500" overlay="" arrows="yes" autoplay="yes" poster="yes"]

Using the Shortcode

After you’ve added images to your slideshow and generated a shortcode you just need to copy the shortcode and paste it into the content of any page or post you want the slideshow to show up on. If you want it to show up on every page you’ll have to add some code to the header.php file in your theme. See the codex’s do_shortcode article for more information on the matter.
