#3283 new enhancement

Automate thumbnail and about on https://central.wordcamp.org/schedule/

Reported by: casiepa Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords: needs-patch good-first-bug


The thumbnail on https://central.wordcamp.org/schedule/ is the featured image of the post about that WordCamp.

Organizers are asked in a dashboard widget on their WordCamp site to submit the picture and about text. Afterwards there is a manual upload. See https://make.wordpress.org/community/handbook/wordcamp-organizer/first-steps/web-presence/your-page-on-central-wordcamp-org/

Some ideas:
1) A page e.g. under Settings on the WordCamp site requesting this information might be more useful as the lead organizer can then deputize these tasks more easily to the admins of the site. The links here could then be picked up by Central automatically.

2) If the meta property "og:image" is correctly filled on the homepage, the image could maybe be taken from there?
