¿Este plugin funciona con todos los temas?

Tal vez no. El plugin funciona bien con la mayoría de los temas, pero como sabes la imagen destacada depende de los temas. Así que, este plugin puede no funcionar para algunos temas altamente personalizados que están usando funciones no ampliables como wp_get_attachment_url.

The image resize worked only the first time with the already uploaded products, after uploading a new one the resize didn't work anymore. I tried everything, even deleting and installing the plugin again. At the actual status, it's basically an useless plugin, with all due respect. Also seems like an abandoned plugin by the devs, not worth installing it.
