Support » Plugin: Featured Post with thumbnail » Thumbnails not showing with WP 3.5.1

  • Hi, I love how easy your plugin is to assign featured posts from the post editor. Unfortunately, though non of the thumbnails are showing. I’m using a customized version of the WP Twenty-Ten theme with WordPress 3.5.1. I deactivated the plugin right now. How can I fix? Or can you update the plugin to fix this? website is

  • You can test it and always remove it, but perhaps adding this snippet of code to the bottom of your functions.php file might help?

    add_theme_support( ‘post-thumbnails’ );
    set_post_thumbnail_size( 90, 90 ); // 90 pixels wide by 90 pixels tall, box resize mode

    Let me know if it works!

    No luck. I re-activated the widget after adding your code. Here’s the website so you can see what’s going on and see if you can figure it out:

    It’s in the sidebar widgets under “Featured Posts”.

    I tried using Firefox Code Inspector to see if it was styling that I could adjust, but couldn’t figure it out. I don’t think that’s it, because I can’t get the image to appear.

    Turned it back off. Any other suggestions? Appreciate the help.

    Well, are you sure it’s not your browser? Your thumbnails are showing fine on my end — if we’re referring to the same thing.

    I’m not familiar with this plugin in particular, but I think I can probably help. You may have to manually clear your cache from your browser instead of just using ccleaner or whatever. In FF, that means going to tools > options > advanced tab > clear now.

    Anyway, this is what I’m seeing:

    Healthy Mama Screenshot. But if you want this in your sidebar, then just forget this screenshot.

    Let me know exactly what you’re trying to accomplish, and I’ll take a look at this plugin, download it and put it on one of my WP blogs to tinker with it.

    It appears that you want a featured post or two to appear in your right sidebar, though?

    I can be easier reached on FB …. It’s almost always open. That way, we can talk ‘on the fly’.


    Are you sure this is installed properly, and you put “yes” in the post that you’d like featured?

    So if you wanted to featured the “Curried Lentil Coconut Soup” post, you open that post, and click “yes” under the featured post section?

    I don’t see anything “featured” in your html output. You should have something like this in your <head>:

    <link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’featured-post-css-css’ href=’′ type=’text/css’ media=’all’ />

    I’d check to make sure it’s installed properly. And you can always put the above in your custom css code, assuming your version of 2010 has it.


    Thanks for trying to help, Jason. I reactivated the plugin on a test site:

    I’m using WP 3.5.1 and the Twenty Twelve Theme. Obviously the thumbnails are not showing. Is it just an incompatibility issue with Twenty Twelve?

    Nevermind, I got it to work on this test site…hang tight.

    Yes, shouldn’t be a compatibility issues with a vanilla install of 2012 … unless it’s conflicting with other plugins, but this plugin doesn’t strike me as one that would have many (if any) conflicts with other plugins.
