    I can't change my featured images on one of my pages. I have tried several times.

    The blog I need help with is katherineschronicle.wordpress.com.

  2. How, exactly, did you try to do it? And which page?

    It's My Bookshelf page. I uploaded the image from my computer, and it says that the image has been set as my featured image, but when I click to change it. It doesn't change

  4. Click Where to change it? http://katherineschronicle.wordpress.com/my-book-shelf/ is just your regular old blog page. It cannot have one featured image.

    Are you talking about the header?

    I have the header I want on the Homepage but I Want to change the featured image on my Book shelf page to something else, and it won't let me

  6. What featured image? Give me a direct link to the post where the featured image is, and the URL of the featured image as well.

  7. The featured image on your bookshelf page is one that takes over the header image. http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

    You remove it in the same place you set the featured image ie. the Featured Image module in the bottom right corner under Page Attributes. Then you set another one.

  9. Read this and see what the size of the image has to be for your theme
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/
    Twenty Ten
    An image that is at least 940 x 198 pixels will be used as the header image for that post/page.

    Look at the size of the Huge image you uploaded 2,866px × 1,874px (scaled to 841px × 550px)

    Prior to uploading any image into your blog, regardless if it’s a header image, a featured image, an image in a post or page, in a Post format (Gallery or Image), an image for sidebar display in an image widget or a text widget, you can optimize and re-size it in either a desktop image editing software or online image editing software to fit the space you intend to use it in. By undertaking proper image preparation first you will get the best image quality, won't be wasting your media storage space, and won't be wasting your time troubleshooting.

  10. The image has not been set as a featured header image on that page. Since you have already uploaded it, you click the Add Media tool, click Media Library, click "Show" next to the image, click "Use as featured image", click outside the popup window to close it, click Update.
    But the image is too large, and in a very different aspect ratio than what's right for header images in 2010. If you set it as a featured image, it will be cropped in a rather unsatisfactory way (you'll get roughly the middle third of it). So, as timethief already suggested, you should edit a copy of the image in an image editing application to downsize it and create a 940x198 version cropped the way you prefer, and upload that version.

  11. Raincoaster is correct, http://katherineschronicle.wordpress.com/my-book-shelf/ is set as the posts page, or the blog page, and so you cannot use a one featured image for it because it displays multiple posts at a time.

    @katherinewscorner, based on the other answers in this thread, it sounds like you might have changed some of the settings around recently. Just to make sure, is http://katherineschronicle.wordpress.com/my-book-shelf/ the link you are referring to? Also, what is your end goal, is it to add a custom header image to the http://katherineschronicle.wordpress.com/my-book-shelf/ page?
