    Was working on a redesign and all was running smoothly. The suddenly "Featured Image" stopped working. When I click on Use as Featured Image it just hangs on saving...

    I had installed a few plugins so deleted them. It still didn't work. contacted theme creator and they suggested reinstalling WordPress. Have done that and it is still not working.

    some themes does not include the featured image function in their function.php.
    What version of wordpress are you using? Are you using an updated theme?

    I am using 3.4.1 WordPress. I am using the full featured version of Nonprofit by Organic Themes. I had the theme installed and it was working. Then I install The Events Calendar Pro & The Events Calendar: Community Events. At some point after I installed those plugins the feature stopped working. I then posted on Organic Themes website for support. They recommended removing all plugins. I did that and it did not work. So they then recommended reinstalling WordPress since it is a core feature of WordPress. That did not work and that is why I am on the forum.

    This is the code that appears in the functions.php page within the Nonprofit theme.

    // Add thumbnail support
    if ( function_exists('add_theme_support') )
    add_theme_support('post-thumbnails');
    add_image_size( 'home-feature', 640, 360, true ); // Homepage Top Image
    add_image_size( 'home-thumbnail', 310, 160, true ); // Homepage Middle Thumbnails
    add_image_size( 'home-tab', 460, 260, true ); // Homepage Tab Thumbnails
    add_image_size( 'page-feature', 930, 480, true ); // Page Featured Banner Image
    ?>

    Theme files could be corrupted. Did you try downloading the theme again? then re-installing it?

    Lets try and figure out whether it's the theme's fault or wordpress itself giving you trouble.
    Try using another theme which supports Featured image (Pinboard is a good one) and create a post with a featured image. See if the image appears on your site. If it does, then it's the theme's fault but if it doesn't there is a problem with your wordpress software.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    I have removed all files and did a fresh install of WordPress (downloaded today) created a blank/fresh database to link it to. Did not import any content. Tried it in Twenty Eleven and Pinboard and it is still doing the same thing. In fact the feature image option doesn't even show up for Pinboard.

    There is no WordPress Team that you can contact. It's free software and these volunteer staffed forums are the only support short of hiring someone.
