Tag: Featured Image

A Featured Image represents the mood, or theme of your WordPress post. If you’re writing a post about apples, the featured image should probably be an image of apples.

Both Posts and Pages have a Featured Image option.

If you’re new to WordPress, you will find the “Featured Image” box on the right-hand side of the screen when creating posts.

Click on the “Set Featured Image” link and this will open the WordPress Media Uploader. You can use that to upload an image from your computer or use an existing image from your Media Library.

PublishPress Capabilities Can Hide Metaboxes, and Any Editor Feature

Hide Metaboxes

Back in June, we released “Editor Features” in the PublishPress Capabilities plugin. This allowed you to hide almost any feature on the post editing screen.

Why do I say “almost”? Because the first release of Editor Features could not hide metaboxes.

I'm happy to say that you can now use PublishPress Capabilities to hide metaboxes. This means that when users are writing a post, you can hide ANYTHING that you don't want them to see.

Why would you want to hide features from your users? Some people do this so that the post editing screen is cleaner and less confusing. Other people do this for security and to prevent users from changing some key settings.

Control the Size of Featured Images with PublishPress Checklists

Featured Image Height Width

When you use the PublishPress Checklists plugin, you can define tasks that content creators must complete before their posts are published.

For example, you can make sure your posts have a minimum or maximum number of words. Or you can require that all the images in the post have ALT text.

One of the most popular options allows you to force all posts to have a featured image. PublishPress Checklists Pro now takes this one step further: you can require a specific height and width for all your featured images. This feature is useful because many themes only look good if your featured images are the correct size.
