    Has anyone here added Featured Image thumbnails to archives index pages on Bushwick? I have a Category named "Photos" and would love to have a little preview or even a grid view for this page.

    Hi there, you could accomplish this by creating a child theme and then adding a new category.php template with a featured image added to it. The new category.php template file then override the archive.php file which currently controls the display of category pages.

    Making a child theme means your changes won't be overwritten when you update the theme. If you're new to child themes, you can explore these guides:

    Here's the Codex guide to adding a featured image to a template file:

    You can also learn more here about the WordPress template hierarchy:

    I'm not sure how comfortable you are with editing theme files and creating child themes, so let me know if you need further help after setting up your child theme.
