I probably should know after 6 months but I’m afraid I don’t. *hangs head in shame* Or point me in right direction. :) March 13, 2012 at 6:06 pm #844134 noirciplumeMember http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/ It varies with each theme used. For example, some blogs that use featured image will show a thumbnail image on their homepage, i.e: http://weheartreading.wordpress.com/ My other blog I use will show the featured image on a slider homepage http://laplumenoire.co.uk/ March 13, 2012 at 6:38 pm #844163 jessielansdelMember Thank you noirciplume. So it’s like a coverall term for different types of header image and thumb nails. I love your slider images. Must peruse those two blogs of yours later. Thank you. :) March 13, 2012 at 6:49 pm #844175 ardpeteMember A featured image, is an image that is featured. If that helps at all? March 13, 2012 at 7:01 pm #844180 jessielansdelMember @ardpete.
