    I'm trying to add a thumbnail to my posts and I don't see the "Add thumbnail" feature that everyones talking about in the new versions.
    I've also tried through adding custom fields.
    Any ideas?

    Try looking in the bottom of the right hand column in the Edit Posts page. Bear in mind that this is a theme-specific option, so you might want to try changing to the 2010 theme.

    Sorry, I have a different template.
    Is there any chance it would work on it?

    No, it doesn't support the 2.9/3.0 way you're showing. It supports custom field thumbnail but i don't know how to insert it.
    <div class="postcontent">

    <?php if(get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumbnail', TRUE)) : ?>

    "><img class="thumbnail alignleft" src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumbnail', TRUE); ?>" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" />

    <?php endif; ?>
    That's in the index.php

    you could try using this plug in.. hasnt been updated in a while, but it's still working great for me. Dont get me wrong, the new thumbnail feature for WP is great.. but this one allows you to choose a specific selection of the uploaded image. and up to 3 thumbnail sizes
