In the video about how to add a Featured Image, you demonstrated scrolling down to a “featured image” section in the right-hand side of the Editor.
But in my website, I have 5 sections and none of them are for the “featured image.” How do I find that section?
If your current active theme does not include support for Featured Images, you won’t find that section in the Editor.
In our videos, we’re using the default WordPress theme that ships with every install of WordPress. Most third-party themes should also include support for Featured Images, but that’s entirely up to the creator of the theme. And for some reason, many theme creators stop short of including support for all the default features that are included in WordPress.
If your theme doesn’t include support for Featured Images, you can hire a developer to edit the code of your underlying theme files to add this important feature in just a few minutes. It’s fairly easy, provided you’re comfortable editing code. You can start a conversation with a WordPress expert and get a quick quote using this form on our site:
