This is my first ever post and I'm not a programmer, just an ex-graphic designer - so please don't tear me to shreds! I'm attempting to move an existing site (created in Dreamweaver a few years ago) to WordPress.
It seems I am failing at the first hurdle. I installed WP and am using MAMP on a macbook to build the site on a localhost. I did this before on another site and it worked fine. However, this time I'm running into problems with the Featured Image function. I can browse and insert in the usual way but the image will not appear when I preview the page.
I tried this on a test page on my other site which is live (not on a localhost) and the feature is working using the same image. I deactivated the two plugins I installed and that didn't help. I also tried installing different themes. I'm using a static front page as well but I don't see why it should make a difference. So I'm thinking it is something to do with the localhost setup.
Any ideas folks???
Thanks in advance,
