Support » Fixing WordPress » Inserting image at top of post also shows at bottom

  • I’m having an odd issue that I can’t narrow down.

    On a few pages when I insert in an image into the top of the post a larger size image appears down after the post. See this page as an example:

    I’ve checked the code and the link is there only once. I see a

    <img width=”500″ height=”335″ src=”” class=”attachment-post-thumbnail wp-post-image” alt=”Jeff-Bio-Pic-High-Res-WEB” title=”Jeff-Bio-Pic-High-Res-WEB”>
    that doesn’t seem to belong. Is this part of my theme options?

    Hi alien8er,

    It’s possible your theme is automatically outputting the post thumbnail (either in the form of a featured image, or the first-uploaded image) on your single post page. You might look through your theme’s options (if there are any) to see if you can turn that functionality on or off. Otherwise, you’ll be looking for a call to the_post_thumbnail() in your single.php file.



    I’m using the Arthemia Premium theme and I am using the first image in the post for thumbnails so I have images showing up in my WPTouch Pro (mobile site plugin). If I don’t set this, then the posts on a mobile device don’t show the thumbnail. Is there a way to control this option by specific pages?

    Configuration for page sections and thumbnail generation across your website. Thumbnail are generated and resized automatically using the TimThumb script. Do not forget to make the ‘scripts’ and ‘cache’ folder of the theme writable (CHMOD 777 or 755 from FTP).

    Thumbnail assignment
    In case you want to have full control over the image thumbnail assignment, please refer to the tutorial here. You have to do manual thumbnail assignment using Custom Field if you don’t want to assign the first image of the post as thumbnail, or perhaps to have a different image as thumbnail.
