No Featured Image Option (5 posts)

    I have the featured image available for general posts (so it is active), but when I add a new product through woocommerce there is no featured image option available, even when I check the screen options. How do I fix this?

    Hi

    That could easily be another plugin or your theme getting in the way of that, can you try swapping your theme to Twenty Twelve to test please

    Yes, the featured image is now available, but I don't want to change my theme. Is there any other way to solve this?

    Hi

    Your theme is setting which post type can use featured images, you will need to talk to your theme author about how to allow featured images for all post types - it will be in the theme functions.php file

    it should say add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    If you look at http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_theme_support#Post_Thumbnails you will see that you can just leave it as the code I added above or add post_types that support the Featured Image, if you add the array then you are limiting the post_types that can use the Featured Image which means any plugins that add post types won't have Featured Images available

    Could it possibly be another program or widget getting in the way?

    I thought it could be because other e-commerce plugins that I have tried (to see if the featured image would appear) had the featured image option with the same theme that doesn't show it for WooCommerce.
