I updated from Types 1.8.5 to Types 1.8.6 and found that I could no longer add featured images to any posts.

I replaced 1.8.6 with 1.8.5 and featured images are working again.


This appears to be happening with as well. Deactivating plugin allows saving of featured image. Screenshot shows blank checked image when enabled.


That's what I was seeing, too (on 1.8.6).

I haven't updated to after reverting to 1.8.5.

Looks like I'll wait until there's an official reply to this topic.


The same here after I updated to
No way to assign a picture from the library as a post-thumbnail.
Copied types 1.8.5 from harddrive to server to redo the update.
Now the post-thumbnails working again.
Hope for a quick fix from toolset.
