    Featured Image support not working in WP 3.6

    I've searched the forums and the net and see a lot of idiotic answers to this problem from people who think they understand the problem but are obviously not reading the issue, or have not tried to actually implement the Featured Image / Post Thumbnail as described in the scriptures at the WP Codex.

    __ Yes i have theme support in functions.php

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
    set_post_thumbnail_size( 150, 150 );

    And this then in turn enables Featured Image dialogue in the WP Admin Post Edit screen.

    Template usage:

    <div id="post_thumbnail">
             <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID, 'thumbnail'); ?>
    </div>

    I also tried this with $page->ID - no success their either.

    __ Yes I disabled all plugins, that's not the problem

    __ Yes I read the useless 3.5 issues page which says nothing about this issue.

    __ Additionally, Featured Image dialogue in the WP Admin Post Edit screen does indeed trigger the popup for Media Upload, allowing me to select Image for Featured Image, but:
    No thumbnail is generated in the WP Admin Post Edit screen, which in turn there is no thumbnail showing on the loop of either excerpt or content.

    A view of the page source for the post shows nothing, no errors for the thumbnail (either $page or $post)

    Any ideas?

    Have you checked if file/folder permissions on the upload directory are set correctly?

    Yes, no change.

    I read you have disabled plugins, have you also activated the default WordPress theme to check if the problem occurs?

    I recently encountered a similar problem where the solution was to go to: settings - general. WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) needed to both have www before the domain.

    Also I have seen this problem after a change in site structure (after a move), the media folder settings were pointing to the wrong (previous) folder location.

    hmm, seems to indeed be the theme itself, but this worked fine in 3.5

    anyone know how to go about fixing this for 3.6?

    Where did you get it? These forums only support themes from here:

    Erm, seems i meant "Fermiumize" but its edited by another programmer (and the support for the theme is on a paid website).

    I have gone to him to ask what's up, but any responses take forever so I've taken it upon myself to get things fixed up since I can't deal with further delays on this particular site.

    Anyway... the theme has featured image working on the posts, but not on the pages, so is there more info on this possible bug? I've seen mention that twenty-twelve had this issue and it was fixed in a subsequent release... perhaps the same issue is here?

    This is not a theme or plugin issue.

    By the time we come here, we have exhausted numerous searches on the net to find a coherent, developer level solution that has some technical merit. Not trite little "go away now and check your perms, or did you disable all your plugins?" answers that demean the reason we came here to begin with.

    At this point, I have reasonably solved this problem based upon a post someone made a while back about using a plugin called "Drag & Drop Featured Image". What a great solution, and makes me wonder why this is not a part of the core.

    After all the work done to make the widget control panel all cool with ajax and instant updating, it makes one wonder why other areas of the wordpress engine aren't as elegant. The "Drag & Drop Featured Image" plugin brings this same kind of cool to the Featured Image dialogue in the right column of the Edit Post column.

    The "Drag & Drop Featured Image" works wonderfully, the only exception is a couple of sites where it seems to sit and spin, but once the post is Published mode everything is fine.

    Get this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/drag-drop-featured-image/

    It will at least get you through the interim.

    I've tried all other options to get my featured images to attach to the post - so far this is the only one that works.

    My featured image option works on post, but not on The Events Calendar plugin? Can't understand why the feature would exist in one and not the other. Have a support inquiry into The Events Calendar, and really don't want to add another plugin - too many moving parts.

    But I have been having several 3.6 upgrade issues on this particular site, and not on others?

    Hi, I had the same issue on my theme.

    In my functions.php file I searched for this line:
    add_theme_support('post-thumbnails', array('post','flv_portfolio'));
    which I changed into:
    add_theme_support('post-thumbnails', array( 'page', 'post','flv_portfolio'));

    Basically I just added 'page' in the array.

    Hope this help!
    Ciao

    Thanks! Page function was there, but post type was not.

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array( 'post', 'page', 'movie', 'tribe_events' ) );
    }

    Hello everyone

    Just wanted to post up a big thanks to "16am" and "mwf113" finally I have been able to cure my problem with no featured image on a plugin I was struggling with.

    I was told to make sure the post-thumbnails line was there which it was but like yours it only had post and I added the grid_products after it and hurray its all good to go.

    So just a thank you really :)

    @tipsbuilders - this thread is about WP3.6 - please start your own thread.

  22. @miamitom? I've deleted your latest post here. Posting insults at the moderators really is not encouraged or positive behavior. It's also not tolerated.

    I suggest you give the forum welcome a good read.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome

    The reason people are asked to post to their own topic is simply because each installation is frequently different with a different theme, plugins, PHP release, different server set ups etc.

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Where_To_Post

    The symptoms may be the same but the cause and resolution often are not.

    Rather than send people on a wild goose chase they can raise their own topic and get specific help for their setup. That way they can get help that applies to them and their setup.

    That's not "playing your moderator games" that being useful and trying to get people the help that they've asked for and deserve.

    If you actually want to contribute to other users problems then please do.
