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

If no custom Open Graph or Schema image has been selected — for a post, page, custom post type, category, tag, or custom taxonomy — this add-on will assign the first custom image found from its parent, grand-parent, great-grand-parent, etc.

Inherited featured and custom images are assigned as default values — you can always edit any child and select a different featured or custom image (which will then be inherited by its own children).

WordPress does not offer "featured" images for taxonomy terms (categories, tags, and custom taxonomies), so to assign an image to a term, select an image in the Document SSO (Social and Search Optimization) metabox when editing that term. This add-on will cascade those custom images to the children of that term, along with the children of those children, etc.

The Inherit Parent Meta (aka WPSSO IPM) add-on makes no permanent changes — simply deactivate the plugin to disable the automatically inherited images. ;-)

There is no add-on settings page for this plugin — simply install and activate the plugin.

Coded for Performance

The WPSSO IPM add-on uses the WordPress wp_cache_get() and update_meta_cache() functions for maximum performance and fully integrate with WordPress core functionality.
