What is a Featured Image

A featured image is the image (thumbnail) that is added to a post. It can be used in various aspects of your WordPress site or will be the preview image if your post is shared to Facebook, Twitter, etc. Some themes will show this image at the top of your page/post and will also be displayed on recent post sliders.

  1. Everywhere I turn, this plug-in is being recommended, but it simply does nothing. I can check and uncheck the box all I want. But there are still feature images at the tops of my blog posts. Like, all of a sudden. I have always had it set to not show the featured images in the Customize section. And they never have. Until this weekend. Now they’re everywhere. And this handy plug-in the whole world is talking about does absolutely nothing. Any other recommendations?
