[resolved] 'Add Thumbnail' interface not showing (3 posts)

    Hey guys

    I've got a really quick question. I've gone ahead and installed the new WordPress 3.0. My blog is brand new, so I didn't have to worry about incompatibility and such. I've switched over to the new 'Twenty Ten' theme which supports 'post-thumbnails' (Which I confirmed by checking the functions.php), and yet I see absolutely no UI in the Edit Post section in the Dashboard letting me select (or 'add') a Thumbnail image for my posts.

    Why is the 'Add Thumbnail' interface not showing in the edit post section?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Actually, I discovered the problem. Seems in 2.9, the 'Featured Image' is known as the thumbnail. In 3.0 it's called the 'Featured Image'. It might sound stupid, but it actually cause me a lot of confusion when reading the docs and blogs on the subject. I hope this post disambiguates between the two for anyone else who finds themselves confused.
