Thats probably because the process is actually SETTING the cover image.After opening an item, then edit, then save the image then appears.
Do you have a Web Accessible TEST site or do you do all of your testing on local host?
When you have time, can you please create a NEW item, upload an image to it and see if the item saves the uploaded image as a Cover Image (it should, but just want to test for sure) (also check that the newly created item does display the image on the listing.
That is looking for a CATEGORY image.
Probably need to move all your old category images (from SC 2.x) to the new structure for XF2.
That would be great. Not sure if I will be on later tonight, but will be around all weekend working on XF stuff.This is the current URL of my live site (XF 1.5):
Garage | EcoDieselRam.com - EcoDiesel Ram 1500 Truck Community
I will do a new test run tonight on a webhost if you'd like access to take a look (if needed).
