    Hi,

    I am using the emag (flexi theme). I created the site to where my posts appear on the home page. I included a photo in the posts, but these photos are not showing in the post excerpt on the home page. The site looks bare without these images. Please help. I am not an expert, so any step by step would be appreciated. I tried researching the developers site as well as contacting them via email...no luck..

    Are you talking about the thumbnails for the posts? I'm seeing those for most of the posts on your homepage.

    I figured it out. but us there any easier way to make all uploaded images featured instead of manually?

    The featured image is easy to use and it also makes it easy to avoid confusion by not taking the liberty to decide which image in your post/page to use as the feature image. What if you had 2 or more? What if you had 2 or more images and do not want a featured image? These are a few reasons why feature images are controlled how they are now.

    It may be how your theme is coded but by default, under publish on the right side, there is a box called Feature Image that you can upload a image to and that will be the featured image for that page/post. That box is shown when you create the page/post.
