WordPress 3 Post Thumbnails/Featured Image

  • # August 3, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    Does anyone know of any good tuts on Post Thumbnails/Featured Image for WordPress 3.0? The 2.9 tutorials out there are no help because the process seems to have changed.

    I’m trying to set up post thumbnails on a custom theme (Starkers), any idea how I’d do something like this?

    add this: add_theme_support( ‘post-thumbnails’ ); to your functions.php. That will enable a dialog in your post (right hand side by default) to attach a featured thumbnail.

    Is there a way the featured image can be resized. Like on the blog page (with the rest of the posts) it appears small but on the single posts page it appears full size.
