Adding a feature image to a post

Posts can have a ‘feature image’ attached to them. This will display alongside the post’s title.

A feature image can be added to a post by following these steps:

  2. Create a new post or edit an existing one.
  3. Choose the ‘Set feature image’ link from the ‘Feature Image’ panel, located within the right sidebar of the edit screen.

  4. Upload a new image or choose an existing one using the Media Library. The image must be exactly 960 pixels in width and 254 pixels in height (960×254). This is to ensure that it will display properly across all platforms.
  5. Once you have chosen your image, the ‘Feature Image’ panel will be updated to show a thumbnail of the chosen image. The image can be removed or modified at any time by selecting the ‘Remove featured image’ link
