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) — to assign a custom image to a term, select an image in the Document SSO metabox when editing a term. The WPSSO IPM add-on will cascade the custom image(s) to the children of that term, along with the children of those children, etc.
The Inherit Parent Metadata (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
update_meta_cache() functions for maximum performance and integrate fully with WordPress core functionality.
