JSM's Inherit Parent Featured Image

Description

If no featured image has been selected for a post, page, or custom post type, this plugin will assign the first featured image found from its parent, grand-parent, great-grand-parent, etc.

The plugin makes no permanent changes – simply deactivate the plugin to disable the automatically inherited images. 😉

Coded for Performance

This plugin uses the WordPress wp_cache_get() and update_meta_cache() functions for maximum performance and fully integrate with WordPress core functionality.

This light weight plugin does the job and saved my hairs of PHP newbie, searching how to share parent page featured image with child pages. It shares in cascad too : parent page > child > child… Thanks to the author!
