Want to highlight your content visually? Consider adding a Featured Image to your posts! Featured Images will appear above the content at the full column width and unlimited height on the blog index and archives pages.
Setting a Featured Image
Open the editor of the post or page where you want to display a unique custom header image, and locate the Featured Image module in the bottom right corner under Page Attributes. Click Choose a Featured Image.
If you don’t see the Featured Image module on your Add New or Edit Post page, please make sure you’ve selected Featured Image in your Screen Options.
You will see an uploading screen identical to that used when inserting an image into a blog post. Follow the on-screen prompts to choose the image from your computer and upload it or choose it from one of the images already in your Media Library.
Once the image has successfully been uploaded, you’ll see one or more images displayed as thumbnails. Click on the one you want to use as a featured image. It will then appear outlined in blue with a checkmark. If desired, you can add a caption and alt text under the Attachment Details area (optional).
Next, click the button Set Featured Image:
Don’t forget to click Update on your post/page to save your changes. Your featured image is now set!
