Featured images

    The new insert featured image process is not working for me. I am trying to insert a pdf but though the wordpress allows me to select the file, the only option given is to ‘delete permanently’: the pdf does not show in the image tiles in the middle of the pop up and there are now other ways apparent to insert the pdf. Any thoughts?



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



    images are not PDF files



    You can upload the PDF to your WordPress.com blog using the Add Media icon. To upload a document and add its download link to a blog post or page see the information at these links:

    If you want to embed the document itself into a post, then you will have to use a third party application like Scribd or Google Docs.

    I have changed my featured image but it isn’t sticking. It looks like it has been changed when I use the edit tool and change the fatures image and save. But then if I come into word press again fresh it is gone…



    I am using mixfolio and my process is usually to add my photo from a URL for the post and then to add it a second time and click on ‘use as featured image’. With the change in uploading media I can’t find a ‘use as featured image’ button and initially my photo does not show on the home page in the featured spot – only ‘image missing’. Later it has suddenly appeared. What is the process here that I should be following?




    timethief – I checked out both links but I didn’t see an answer in either to my question about featured images. I did however learn about the usefulness of alt tags. Still – what is the correct way to display a photo on the home page of mixfolio. While all are currently working on my site beyondthebrushphotography.wordpress.com I don’t know how I achieved that – strange I know. On first try photo only shows on post page – then I go back in in frustration and upload again looking for ‘featured image’ which I can’t find and generally getting more frustrated and then – boop – it appears on home page. Not a satisfactory way of getting it there – What is the correct way to do it?


    Thanks for your help. Problem solved
