Set featured image is incomprehensible since it was 'improved' Unuseable.

  1. Cannot set featured image into post since the way it's done was revised. Image ends up in the admin area under 'Featured image' I have no wish to look at it there. I want it in the posting box so I can upload it to the blog front page. The previous way of doing this was so straightforward. It should not have been changed. I need a NON-TECHIE PLAIN ENGLISH and simple decoding way of just putting the picture into the blog as I have done before and find impossible now.

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

  2. Twenty Ten - An image that is at least 940 x 198 pixels will be used as the header image for that post/page.

    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

  3. Sorry I just don't understand your reply. But thanks for it. I want to post a picture which is in the library onto my blog - not as a header.

    I have the picture appearing in the 'Set featured thing' And I can drag SOME of it to the compose area....but I used to have the option of a simple sizing by clicking options that fit posts and could go right, left or centre. Is that gone or hidden and accessible?

    I don't want to have to give up putting pictures into the blog. Right now I want to just throw my laptop in the sea. Blogging should be for everyone and not just techies into making ever more 'cool' and complicated weirdness. Cool to me is making things simple.

    I'm giving up. Hot bath time. And taking my now big headache to bed. Stressed OUT.

  4. Featured images in that theme are images that replace header images. Are you clear on that?

  5. See here for inserting an image into a post or page http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/image-alignment/

  6. I've never used that area before - all the photos inserted into my (Twenty ten) blog posts have been put in using the featured image option. Till now.

    I'll try doing it using that media button above the toolbar as your link instructs....

  7. Good to know you are going to give it a go because it works fine for me.

  8. I've done it.... Thank yu so much for your patience. Can't write anything under it as a post, but the picture is there at least.

  9. Just cannot work out why I can't put pictures in using featured anymore....
