Test: Troubleshooting Ultimate Post List

Apr-17-2020

I would like to use the Ultimate Post List plugin instead of the default WP Category lists, but I cannot get the list to show up with thumbnail images. This note is to show what the problem is.

My movie reviews start with a thumbnail image of the movie poster. But I do not store the movie poster thumbnail in my WP Media Library. Instead, I insert a WP Block image with a URL link to an image on tmdb.org.

In a localhost test database, I activated the Ultimate Post List plugin and made a page with the list shortcode as follows. This example has all movies in the Romance category.

The resulting list only shows thumbnails for posts that have images from the WP Media Library
