How to Add Post Thumbnails to your Posts

Published: May 18, 2012

Depending on which theme you’re using, post thumbnails are set to show up in the index pages, or most of the time – in the single post pages. Adding a post thumbnail to your post is really easy. Simply follow the steps below:

Go to each post in “Edit” mode. In the right side of the page – click on “Set Featured Image“.

This will trigger the image uploader. Upload your image and as soon as that’s done, click the “Use as Featured Image” link:


Note that you should keep the file sizes to a smaller size. The resizing script has a maximum size limit. You can view the results in the single post page – here is a screenshot of Aparatus:

    I really like this theme, however images are not displaying, and I don’t know where to correct this. Images don’t appear on the front page for “Latest Listings” nor on the search page or the individual listing page. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
