The Wordchimp Wordpress plugin has a PHP file where all actions are executed.
The code pulls in data from the wp_posts table using SQL. I also need Featured Image data to be pulled in but this data is not stored in that table.
Here is the relevant PHP code in Wordchimp: http://pastebin.com/E0Qgep4e
I think this is the code to add a featured image or maybe there is another way:
$Featured_image = $wpdb->get_results("
FROM net_5_postmeta AS pm
INNER JOIN net_5_posts AS p ON pm.meta_value=p.ID
WHERE pm.post_id = $da_id
AND pm.meta_key = '_thumbnail_id'
ORDER BY p.post_date DESC
The task is simply to add in the featured image data with the post excerpt data. That's it.
I can give more specific details by chat. If you have gchat, that is preferred.
