Featured Image Reminder


Featured Image Reminder came about because some forgetful blogger (me) had a site where featured images were important and he kept publishing blog posts without the featured image being prepared.

When the plugin is installed and activated, and you try to publish a post without a featured image, a dialog box will appear asking if you really want to do that.


  • Inspired by the Publish Confirmation plugin.
  • Plugin repository banner includes a photo from Flickr user tiff_ku1, used under Creative Commons licensing


  • This is the message shown if you forget to include a featured image. Choosing “Cancel” gives you the opportunity to add your forgotten image. If you choose “OK” the post will be published.


  1. Upload featured-image-reminder.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
