    For now, I set no featured images (for posts) in general customize settings.
    So for all our posts, featured images was add manually into posts.

    We’ll change your setting to enable “Display featured images”
    Result : we will have featured image duplication into each past post.

    My idea :
    – use the disable command present in each post to disable featured image
    – then enable featured image in post in general customize setting for futur posts

    To make this, use a mysql command to disable featured image into all post, one by one.

    My question :
    – do you think it’s the best solution to reach my goal ?
    – can you help me for this specifique mysql command ?

    Hi there,

    Just to confirm, are you looking for a way to bulk-remove the existing featured images you’ve added into your content?

    Let me know 🙂


    Hi Tom,
    In fact no, because users added image manually into content (usually the same image as the featured image) an very often between some text paragraph.

    Do you think it will be possible with a mysql query. It would mean deleting an tag in the content if the image is the same as the featured image

    Actually, theme general settings set with no featured image into blog post thats why users add it manually .
    Goal : put this setting enable but then I will have featured image duplicated (one from theme setting + one added manually)

    So you’re wanting to use the featured image option, but all of your posts have the featured image added directly into the content?

    I’m not sure of a mysql way to remove those, unfortunately. I’m not even sure if it would be possible to remove only those images and not all of the images in the content.


    the idea was to make a mysql query to enable the option “disable featured img” present in each post (into layout/disable elements) before enable featured image in global theme setting.

    Bad idea ?

    So doing that would disable the featured image on all existing posts, while new posts would use the featured image?

    Is that right?
