Mini Frontpage not showing article pictuer

Hi,

I'm very new to the Mini Frontpage module. Before buying it I will test it on a test site.
What I do not understand is how and when intro pictures are loaded or not. Currently only the default picture is loaded, nothing from the article picture.
How can I set:
- module default picture if nothing in article
- article picture if there is any picture in article settings

The used template is Helix3

    Hi, When generating thumbnail, Minifrontpage will first try to find intro image from the article. If no intro image found then it will try to find in full text image. If still no image found then the module will try to find first image from the article body. If still no image found, then the module will use default image.
    Hope this helps

    Ok, thanks for your answer. Would be good if that works .. but it does not.

    I have in one article article picture, intro picture, featured picture inserted, but no one is displayed in Mini Frontpage.

    Can you try to delete all images located under this folder : https://test.montafreunde.de/images/thumbnails/mod_minifrontpage/ and then refresh your browser?

    Ok, now I got a picture. But this is not how I want do have it because the picture is only read from "Images and Links" within article. Not from "Blog options - featured image" and also not from inserted image.

    What I want to see is a image in the Mini Frontpage, but not in the article itself. Also I do not want to delete all thumbnails everytime I changed a picture .. thats not friendly :-)

    The picture is read from Images and Links and inserted image in the article. And yes, not from Blog Option - featured image, because it's not the standard joomla's article option

    You can do that by hide the intro text in the article's option, then the intro image will be displayed in the module but when it's clicked, the article page will not display the intro text and intro imagehttps://www.dropbox.com/s%2Fl0kwcdwm3egtn8i%2Farticles%2520options%2520-%2520j39%2520-%2520administration%25202021-06-08%252010-53-15.png?raw=1
    Also I do not want to delete all thumbnails everytime I changed a picture .. thats not friendly
    The module main purpose is to display the latest articles. We assume that user won't update the image often. But if needed, the tumbnails can easily be deleted from your administrator page by going to Content -> Media Manager. If you really need to have the thumbnail is updated everytime you change the picture / aupdate the article, then you can use minifrontpage pro.
