How to Add Post Thumbnails to Your Posts

[ 0 ] November 22, 2009 |

Adding thumbnail images to your posts is pretty simple. Follow the short guide, and you’ll know all you need to know.

The theme will automatically display post thumbnails for each post unless you deactivate this feature on the Theme Settings page under “Basic Site Settings.

The theme will search for images in the following order:

1. First, it will look for an image assigned by custom field (custom field name: thumbnail).

2. If no image is added by custom field, it will check for an image defined as the “Featured Image” on the Add Post screen (WordPresss 2.9+ feature). If you do not see the Featured Image metabox on the Add Post/Page screen, click the “Screen Options” tab in the upper right corner and select it from the list of options.

3. If no image is found in either of those places, it will look for an image that you’ve uploaded to the post. If you’ve uploaded multiple images to your post, it will use the #1 image as set in the gallery section of your media uploader (click thumbnail to the right).

4. If no image is attached, it will extract an image that you inserted into your post content.

5. Finally, if no image is found via any of those methods, a default image will be displayed unless you deactivate that function on the Theme Settings page.
