I have updated to the newest version of wordpress, PHP, and apache on a custom localhost server. The GD2 library is included, but I seem to have an inability to load thumbnails even though under settings I have the plugin set to "featured image". Basically, I want the plugin to output the featured image of a post so I can style it to make a small grid of images that are links to my most popular posts. Unfortunately, the images don't display at all, I even checked the output html in Google chrome and it doesn't even have a <img> tag for an image. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Also, could it be due to the fact that my theme does not currently have support for thumbnails in menus? It seems like the output is an unordered list styled to be a menu.
