The below code is part of Keyring Social Importer, and it imports my Tweets from Twitter and posts them as individual blog posts on my Wordpress.org install.

I was wondering how I could make it set the featured image of all of the blog posts it creates to something.

Currently it just imports my Tweets as publishes them as blog posts... no images whatsoever, but my theme relies heavily on featured images and thumbnails so if I could set one in this code it would be really handy. So something like, the_post_thumbnail=imgID for all posts.

Let me know your thoughts.

Many thanks,

HT

The quickest and dirtiest way to do this is to add one line to the insert_posts() function, just before the $imported++; line:

        }

        add_post_meta( $post_id, 'raw_import_data', json_encode( $twitter_raw ) );

        // NEW LINE (change 1001 to the image ID):
        set_post_thumbnail( $post_id, 1001 );

        $imported++;
    }

This will obviously disappear if you ever update the plugin. There aren't any hooks built into the plugin to add your desired functionality, so a more rigorous solution would have to periodically query for posts with, say, the keyring_service post metadata set, check for any that don't have the thumbnail set, and then set it to the default.

You're a legend! Thank you so much for your help. It worked! –  user2185625 Apr 9 '13 at 19:00
    
Nate, I don't suppose you would know how I could add a "Follow me on Twitter" link after the Tweet content in the blog posts? For example.... "Tweet tweet tweet<BR><BR>Follow me on <a href="link">Twitter</a>" –  user2185625 Apr 9 '13 at 19:20
    
You want one of Twitter's buttons: twitter.com/about/resources/buttons –  Nate Cook Apr 15 '13 at 6:09
