By default, WordPress Popular Posts will attempt to generate a thumbnail from the first image attached to your posts. However, you can also select a custom thumbnail by enabling The Post Thumbnail functionality on your blog. To do this, simply add this line of code to your theme’s functions.php file:
// Enable post thumbnails
Once you’re done with that, go to your WordPress Admin interface and you should see a nex bow called Post Thumbnail (renamed “Featured Image” on WordPress 3.0) under the Add New Post / Edit Post screens. Pick the image of your choice, click on Use as thumbnail (changed to “Use as featured image” on WordPress 3.0) and save changes.
Now WordPress Popular Posts will use your selected images as thumbnails!
