  • At this link two pics are shown side by side.

    Some listings don’t have an image and I don’t know how to add it.

    There used to be little icon you clicked right above the formatting toolbar that allowed you to browse for a pic and upload it.

    I swear the user interface has changed because the ‘Add Media’ button is there now and I can’t figure out how to add the image.

    Can anyone tell me how?

    Thanks – rev

    Try clicking on the Add Media button.

    I did try that.

    Set Featured Image does fill the required spot but it also disturbs the whole format of the post. The ‘featured image’ obliterates the text description in the post.

    Insert Image simply inserts an image (wherever you have the cursor) into the body of the post.

    The other options don’t seem applicable.

    as your theme seems to be custom made for your site, you might need to contact the developer for support.
    from the outside, it is virtually impossible to find out how the images are added to the front page listing.

    also disturbs the whole format of the post

    please post a link to an example to enable anybody to comment on that issue.

    >from the outside, it is virtually impossible
    Yes, I had a feeling that would be true but it was worth a try.

    I did post the link in the original question but I can’t demonstrate the effect on the post without screwing up someone’s listing. I can describe it though.

    You would normally see the banner pic, a text description under that and thumbnail pics under the description. But when the Featured Image is set and you enter the post, the featured image has replaced the banner picture and it’s so large that the description is completely obscured.

    Can you tell me if anything is automatically upgraded, so that I could go back to an earlier version? I swear the toolbar has changed and the icon I used to use has gone. Thanks!

    ‘featured images’ can be set in such a way as not to ‘break’ a theme; http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails‎

    this seems to be a theme issue – if you don’t know the functionality of your theme, please contact the theme’s developer for support or for instructions.

    this forum here cannot help as the theme is not from http://wordpress.org/themes/

    >from the outside, it is virtually impossible to find out how the images are added to the front page listing.

    Al: The images that are working must have properties I could ‘trace’ backwards? i.e. If they’re stored somewhere as thumbs and called by a link (for example) could I not find that information in the host template and then associate the missing images with the appropriate posts manually using File Manager or something like that?

    That sounds like what I need because Set Featured Image does populate that location with an image. If it had no further effect on anything, I’d be home and dry. Thanks.
