Post Thumbnail? (4 posts)

    I have recently installed 3.0 beta1 and am trying to use a "Featured Content" function in my theme. The theme calls for "Post Thumbnail" for the image, but I can't for the life of me get that option to appear when editing an article.

    I've read suggestions to enter: <?php add_theme_support('post-thumbnails'); ?> into the function.php of the theme, but tried that and it did nothing.

    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    When you upload that media, are you seeing the link "Use as featured image" just below the Alignment and Size sections?

    also check the screen options on the edit post/page in case you have that section unchecked.

    I am near tears because I, who am FAR from technically inclined, have been struggling with this issue and you, MichaelH have saved me!!! Oh, Happy, Happy Day!!! Sure, I have a LOT more to learn but my IMAGE IS FINALLY APPEARING in the Featured Content of my theme of the Block Theme that I purchased. The documentation that I got when I purchased this theme isn't as helpful as I hoped! So, thanks!
