How to set thumbnail for a post?

  • I’m using a kid theme based on the theme Mystique but have made negligible modifications in the kid theme.

    I can’t figure out how to set a thumbnail image for a post.

    Things I’ve done:
    – scoured the post edit screen – I don’t see a link or a button or any mention of thumbnail on the post edit screen.
    – checked the features.php – Other Mystique users have thumbnails for their posts and I’ve checked the features.php and found that it is set up correctly to recognize thumbnails
    – added images to posts and assigned feature images – neither of these show as thumbnails.

    What am I missing?

    on the post edit page, right hand side, lower down, look for ‘featured image’

    what theme you got or whats your url

    @alchymyth – as I said, I did assign feature images and these did not show as thumbnails. Perhaps Mystique does not use the featured image as a thumbnail? or perhaps it does and I need a better way to test. I’m using the List Category Posts plugin with the attribute thumbnail=yes and yet the thumbnail doesn’t show. Maybe it’s the plugin – How else could I test?

    @altinkum – my first line . . . I’m using a kid (sub)theme based on the theme Mystique.
