Support » Fixing WordPress » Featured image metabox showing up for one CPT, but not the other

  • Resolved lonecayt


    I have two custom post types on a single site install – exhibitions and classes. Both have ‘support’ => ‘thumbnail’ enabled, AND I have
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array( 'post', 'exhibitions', 'classes' ) ); in functions.php.

    I also have two versions of the site – one on localhost, and one live, which I copied from the localhost version very recently. In the localhost version, the featured image metabox shows up just fine for both custom post types. There’s different content in the live version, but otherwise, the ONLY difference in the entire file structure is that I have Google Analytics installed and enabled. Any ideas?

    By the by, I’m using Nextgen Gallery (version 2.something) to generated the featured images for the custom post types. But again, it works just fine for both CPTs on the localhost version.

  • Found the solution – it was actually the Advanced Custom Fields plugin that was blocking it. At the very bottom of the ‘edit field group’ screen (for ACF), there’s a big box called ‘Options.’ I had checked Featured Image as being a metabox I wanted to hide. Once I unchecked it and saved, I was able to go into the screen options on the Add New Exhibition screen and tell it to show, and there it was! Apparently I had played with the ACF configuration since moving the site from localhost to the server.
