Featured Image not visible on front end of site (6 posts)

    I started this discussion on another thread and I got to the point where I was recommended to discuss with the theme developer first.

    So, here's the problem:
    I installed WP and am using MAMP on a macbook to build the site on a localhost. I did this before on another site and it worked fine. However, this time I'm running into problems with the Featured Image function. I can browse and insert in the usual way but the image will not appear when I preview the page.

    I tried this on a test page on my other site which is live (not on a localhost) and the feature is working using the same image. I deactivated the two plugins I installed and that didn't help. I also tried installing different themes. I'm using a static front page as well but I don't see why it should make a difference. So I'm thinking it is something to do with the localhost setup.

    I'm not a programmer but have edited code a few times following step-by-step instructions.

    Any help appreciated,

    Just checking...

    Can the sample page illustrated in the WordPress themes section ( http://wordpress.org/themes/attitude ) be reproduced with the Theme's free version and, specifically, can I use the featured post field to add a large image as illustrated on the sample page.

    Hi archtop,

    I am not sure what you are asking, generally I try to put a feature image for all my posts. Please viewed here.

    The font size has been tweaked for my old eyes, but everything is as is.

    I tried a few things and got the featured image to show. Turns out I didn't understand the system of entering the page ID in theme options. Anyway, it's still not exactly how I want it to look. Here's a screen shot with the featured image working - http://www.organicsmusic.com/ss1.jpg - The image is at full width now but there is a space between it and the menu with the title 'home' in it. Also I can't see how to remove the info boxes overlapping the image. Here's how I'd like it to look, ideally: http://www.organicsmusic.com/ss2.jpg

    ideas anybody? thanks!

    I am glad you figured out the entering of page ID....I am still very lost. Could you give a little guidance?

    PS I love your guitar image. Hope my site can turn out as nice.

    Hi reburnt

    I got this from the Theme Horse support:
    Hi John,

    The post/page slider is available in our free version and works fine with WordPress 3.8
    You can follow this steps outlined here http://www.themehorse.com/theme-instruction/attitude/#slider for making slider work
    If you are confused on any steps feel free to ask us.

    Theme Horse

    The bit I was missing was the page ID; seems obvious now! I still haven't got where I'd like to be but it will do for now.

    All the best
