WordPress Post Image Plugin?

  • # March 11, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    I have a question. On my current website, I’d like to have my posts accompanied by an image. When you look at the post on the front page, there should be a thumbnail. Then, once you have clicked on the post, the image appears again, larger this time and spanning the width of the #wrapper, with the content nestled below it.

    I have found something akin to what I’d like, here. I downloaded the theme to see how things were structured and when you make a new post, there is a tiny, little widget at the bottom called “Magazeen Post Options” and there is an option to upload an image.

    Is there a WordPress plugin that enables something like this without having to use someone else’s theme? I’ve been searching through plugins for the better half of a day and I can’t seem to find anything.

    Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

    This type of functionality is actually built directly into WordPress now with ‘Post Thumbnails’ (also known as ‘Featured Images’).

    @TheDoc is right. Go to `Posts >> Add New Post` look at the last panel bottom right.

    Well, hot damn, that’s handy. Awesome. That was a quick fix.

    You can also set specific sizes for it in your functions.php file.

    Yeah, I was just looking at several codex pages about “Featured Images.” Pretty nifty stuff. If I have any troubles, I am sure you can guess where I’ll be. On here. But the codex seems fairly thorough.
