How To Use WordPress Featured Images In Your Posts & Themes
WordPress is known as a top blogging platform, of course, but one of the major components of blogging involves the use of images. It’s common practice now to populate blog posts with plenty of images to keep visitors engaged. Because let’s face it: paragraph after paragraph of densely-packed text isn’t all that appealing.
In fact, it looks like work.
Still, you have a number of options in how you present images in your posts. You can insert a standard image, of course, but you can also create and insert a gallery. Some themes support sliders that display several images on rotation. And while all of those are good options, if you want to make sure third-party sites pick up on your images, the featured image is where it’s at.
What Are Featured Images?
Okay, so you know how when you visit a blog and the main page will often have post excerpts on it? That is, the page will typically show a list of blog post titles with accompanying snippets and photos. These thumbnail images are more often than not put in place by the Feature Image function.
Before we move onto the more nitty-gritty details of featured images, let’s talk about a few of their most common features:
- Featured images can appear as thumbnail images that accompany a blog post title and description on a blog’s homepage.
- Featured images can appear above the post title and meta data on an individual post.
- Featured images can appear below the post title and meta data on an individual post.
- Featured images can appear as thumbnails and as images within a post.
