Making images show up on the main page

  1. For some reason I can't get the image that I have posted in my first blog post to show up on the main page. The image shows up when I click on the permalink for the post, but not in the teaser for the post on the main page. I tried making it a featured image, but that didn't work- it just made a slideshow. I am using the Suburbia template.

    I am brand new to wordpress, so any info is helpful. Thanks!

  2. I see the featured image on the front page of your blog.

    The number of posts you set to display here > Settings > Reading determines how many posts will display on the front page of the blog. It's by setting featured images at least 350 by 248 (width, height) as sticky posts that determines how many display side-by-side. Two posts each with featured images results in what you refer to as two columns.

    On the main page, Suburbia doesn't display regularly inserted images. They only display when a post is viewed on its own page - not on the front page. Only two posts with featured images in them display there side by side.

    To have front page image display you need to set a featured image to each post and make each post a sticky post. The size of the featured image does matter. The featured image works best with images at least 350 by 248 (width, height).

    If you don’t see the Featured Image module on your Add New or Edit Post page, please make sure you’ve selected Featured Image in your Screen Options. http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options
