[Resolved] Featured Image for Pages

  • Can anybody tell me how to make the featured image work for pages? At first I added it by clicking on the button on the Edit Page, but since that didn’t make a difference I used the Add Media > Set Featured Image. That too did not replace the header image.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

  • Featured images don’t work on pages in twenty twelve

    see http://wordpress.org/support/topic/2012-featured-image-not-showing-in-body-of-page-or-post?replies=14#post-3579429

    There is a bug in the twenty twelve theme which allows you to think you can add a featured image to a page but you can’t.

    OK – thanks a bunch, tomontoast. I know I cannot expect all features of previous theme versions to work on newer ones, but when the option is there, which it is, then I expected the same result. I liked the Featured Image option for pages and hope, the bug in 2012 can be fixed soon.
    Will check out your link.

    tomontoast i added the code below from your link to my twenty twelve child theme function file and it still doesnt work

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array( 'post' ) );

    I see that 5 months ago featured image does not work in twenty twelve theme. Has there been a fix. I am writing this question on 6-8-2013

    I’d love to be able to set a featured image for individual pages…I hope this gets added to twentytwelve!

    This issue appears to be solved in the version of Twenty Twelve that comes with the nightly build of the latest WordPress.

    Click here to download it.

    Browse to wp-content and find the Twenty Twelve folder. Replace your existing Twenty Twelve folder with this new one and shazam… pages will have any featured image you set.

    I took your advice and tried to replace the theme folder and it doesn’t contain the style.css file therefore not recognized in WP.
    Is there some part of this missing or am I missing some part of this?
    I was hoping to put a custom page/body/content image background with this replacement for twelve.
