I started this discussion on another thread and I got to the point where I was recommended to discuss with the theme developer first.
So, here's the problem:
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.
I'm not a programmer but have edited code a few times following step-by-step instructions.
Any help appreciated,
