No Featured Image Page For Posts on TwentyTwelve Theme? (7 posts)

    Am I wrong in concluding that there is no featured image page for TwentyTwelve?

    I'd like a featured images page on my blog similar to this one - but it seems there is no option for it using the TwetyTwevle (child) theme.

    Is there a workaround I could hard-code in?

    Any help would be appreciated...

    I don't fully understand your question -

    Twenty Twelve shows the featured image above the post title in the index and archive pages; just formatted differently from your example site.

    At the risk of sounding like a complete dummy. I'm not sure that that's true. For instance - when I navigate to the index:


    I get the one post listed, with no featured image; I have uploaded one yet I don't see it anywhere...

    I was generalizing too much - in more detail:
    if the featured image gets shown will depend on the selected 'post format';

    your post has the post format 'image' which utilizes content-image.php - which does not show the featured image.

    Thanks, I guess my question becomes, what must I do to get a featured image page as my example above. It doesn't seem possible with my current template.

    Would this call for custom coding in my part?

    I still don't have an answer for this.

    I am basically looking for a format that returns a featured image page like this:

    Example 1

    or this:

    Example 2

    Is this possible using the TwentyTwelve theme?

    Nevermind. I just stumbled across a helpful webpage which clearly defines which kind of featured image will be used dependent on the template design:

    Information about Featured Images in WordPress

    Hope it's useful!
