[resolved] Can't get post thumbnails to work (2 posts)

    I've been struggling for days with this problem. I'm an old Blogger, new to WordPress and I'm not ashamed to say I'm lost. The only way I can get post thumbnails to show on homepage, category pages and search pages is to go back to Blogger, copy the image to my desktop, upload it to media library and set the featured image.

    With over 360 posts I will be working for a long time if that is my only solution. I've searched Google and WordPress and can't find any other solution, and I don't want to change my theme.

    This is my website:
    civilwarwomenblog.com

    Email: maggiemac6138@yahoo.com

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Maggie MacLean

    Maggie,

    Sorry for late response.

    Thanks you for using my theme!

    You can automate the entire process by using this http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ or any other thumbnail generator.

    Install plugin and run "Regen. Thumbnails" which you will find in WordPress dashboard under "Tools".

    This will do the trick.

    If the above mentioned solution doesn't work. You can try this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/auto-post-thumbnail/ in combination with one I mentioned before. This plugin will set first image from the post as featured one but It requires for thumbnails to be re-generated.
