Can't Find Featured Images Module in 3.01. (9 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to utilize the 'Set Featured images' option in my wordpress blog: http://www.thesesocksdontmatch.com. However, I don't see the module below the 'Post Tags' module. Does this feature exist in 3.0.1?

    Might that be an option specific to a particular theme, rather than a general WordPress option?

    Hi Clayton,

    I found this article: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/05/13/featured-postsimages-in-bueno/

    But it directs you to the support doc, which says that the feature should exist: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

    I'm using the Bueno theme. Thanks for your help!

    Ahh... that appears to be a feature available on wordpress.com hosted blogs. You might find something here that does the same thing, or maybe someone else will know if it's available for wordpress.org blogs.

    A little further reading seems to indicate(if I interpreted correctly) that this might be something that is available as an option when using any theme that supports featured images in WordPress. It sure seems like it should be an available feature when using the Bueno theme, according to the documentation. Sorry I wasn't of any help.

    To enable Featured Images, add the following to your theme's functions.php file.

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    To define the size as it will display by default, add this next one as well. Replace 236 with whatever you want the width to be and 9999 with your desired height.

    set_post_thumbnail_size( 236, 9999 );

    Enabling Featured Images will not make them automatically appear anywhere on your blog though; you'll need to edit your template files to do that. More info here.

    Thanks so much snomura! This worked so well: http://www.thesesocksdontmatch.com. Only thing is, it added a strange second cropped image to each of my posts. Does anyone know how to get rid of that? I had uploaded an image to the 'Set featured image' section, but now there's no way reverse that step.

    Did you modify any template files like 'index.php'?

    What did you set the post thumbnail size to be?

    Where did you "upload an image to the 'Set featured image' section"? Was this on the 'New Post' page? If so, just click 'Remove Featured Image,' which appears directly below the featured image.

    Nope, didn't modify the index.php template. I set the post thumbnail size to 150x150 in this code: set_post_thumbnail_size( 150, 150 ).

    In terms of uploading an image to the 'Set featured image' section, I don't think I did. I may be crazy, but I think the images automatically appeared when I add the code to the functions.php section.

    I've looked in each post for an image in the 'Set featured images' section, and there aren't any set and therefore no play to remove the images.

    I think it's the thumbnails redisplaying somehow. Any way to remove the duplicate re-sized ones?

    Thanks!
