Inserting a Featured Image into your Post/Page
Many of our themes take advantage of a feature called Featured Image. Implementation of the Featured Image varies on each theme and many themes do not use this functionality. If your theme supports Featured Images, this is a great way to add interest to your posts and pages. Our Graphene 2.0 theme takes full advantage of Featured Images in both Posts and Pages and can greatly enhance your site. Featured Images are typically shown when a list of Posts or Pages are displayed. It’s very similar to modern online news sites with an image next to the story link. This tutorial explains how to add a Featured Image.
Step 1: Click Set Featured Image on a Post or Page
Step 2: Upload or Select an Existing Image
Step 3: Click Set Featured Image Button
Step 4: Verify and Publish / Update
A Few Tips with Featured Images
Most Featured Images will look best if they are square images as that is usually how a theme is set to display them. When possible, try to use a square image so the sides or top and bottom are not cropped when they are displayed. This is not required, but will always look a little nicer.
If you want to remove (or change) your featured image, click the REMOVE FEATURED IMAGE link below the Featured Image and you can save your Page / Post or upload a new Featured Image.
