What are the featured images?

Featured images (also sometimes called Post Thumbnails) are images that represent an individual Post, Page, or Custom Post Type. When you create your Theme, you can output the featured image in a number of different ways, on your archive page, in your header, or above a post, for example.

I do not see the “Featured Image” option when I edit a page or post. Why?

If you do not see the “Featured Image” when you edit a WordPress post this is mostly because the support for featured images it is not enabled on your theme. To enable this you need to add this to your theme’s functions.php file: add_theme_support( ‘post-thumbnails’ );.

I do not see the “Featured Image” option when I edit a custom post type. Why?

If you do not see the “Featured Image” when you edit a custom post type page it’s because “thumbnail” it is not added in the “supports” arguments array.
So, when you have added the code to create the custom post type you missed to add “thumbnail” in the “supports” array. It looks similar to this: ‘supports’ => array( ‘title’, ‘editor’, ‘thumbnail’, ‘comments’, ‘trackbacks’, ‘revisions’, ‘custom-fields’, ‘page-attributes’, ‘post-formats’ ).

In version 6.3.1 on SEP 27. 2023 with THEME “GeneratePress” works PERFECTLY. I think it fails if you use ELEMENTOR and things like that. But since version 6, using Elementor is USELESS. This plugin is GREAT for not adding a CSS line for each main page and being able to use the “do not show main image” option more

I wish these reviews had a second option for “Works/Doesn’t Work with my setup” because for all I know the plugin works great on other themes and page builders. The checkbox is displayed under Featured Image but it doesn’t do anything with Astra/Elementor.

Great plugin! Works exactly what I needed it for. I show categories with the featured images on certain pages but don’t want the featured image to show on the actual pages where it’s set to. Works perfectly! Thanks

…used on a portfolio page where the portfolio page used a classic mode (standard page) within the bauhaus template (by dev. named highsea that can be found on and when the checkbox was checked for a given featured image it didn’t remove it from the post but it rather hid it from the “masonry style” projects list hence the corresponding thumbnail was missing and the featured image remained happily present on the corresponding project page. So it doesn’t fully work as it should not “blindly” and without any checks remove the featured image… it should rather check if the current page shown is the page itself (not a project/portfolio page for instance) and then only if the current page shown IS indeed the page to which that featured image belongs to… that’s when it would kick in and hide the image from said page.
