Now I've noticed that we can't use the image codes in multiple posts because it won't show up as a thumbnail if it's code we put in previously posted on older posts. It shows when we click the permalink but it won't show as a thumbnail on the main page unless we re-upload the same image over and over and over again. I've used the same image before on other templates by just grabbing the codes. Now we can't because it won't show on the main page as a thumbnail. Argh.

Header for Inuit Types
Inuit theme - the add thumbnail option has disappeared - it's not on my page where I edit a new post nor is it when I open the Media Gallery.
Worked perfectly yesterday.
This is the blog I'm trying to post to -
Thanks for your help.
joniew, yes it changed. No longer says thumbnail but now it says Feature on the bottom right where the Thumbnail was yesterday.
Forget what I was complaining about a minute ago. I've solved my problem. I've never used this feature for whatever reason but now I can instead of re-uploading the same image a thousand times. I can hit the media gallery feature when we upload the new thumbnail and I can grab it from there. Dang.
Thanks so much! I can't find that button on my edit page, but I went back to the Media Gallery and found it there and voilá thumbnail. How confusing. This theme is wonderful, but the option to use the thumbnail should be right there when we edit. Thanks again and happy blogging! Jonie
Correction - found it under Screen Options, thanks again!
joniew, so you don't see it when you make a new post? It's at the bottom right saying Featured Image. Underneath that, you click Set Featured Image. But when we edit, I believe the thumbnail is showing at the bottom right but it now asks if you want it removed.
I just switched to Inuit Types after being on Regulus for 18 months on my blog <u>The Marching Jester</u>.
I spent the last three hours updating every post in the last 18 months to include the thumbnails on every post as I really liked the look.
Imagine to my horror when I realised those thumbnails only appeared under 'older posts' but not in my archives or categories.
I came into the forums and discovered this thread.
Am so disappointed and frankly rather frustrated as it means I've spent three hours doing something for nothing.
Is there anyway to include the thumbnail when people click on my archives or categories?
If it isn't possible it's okay. I just wished I knew it earlier as three hours is a lot of time on a weekend haha!
No, in Inuit Types it's not possible. What shows up in Category and other index pages is theme-dependent (see here: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/03/25/full-posts-in-archive-pages/ ).
Ahh I see.
I had no idea there were so many restrictions and at the same time, breadth and depth to uncover more theme secrets.
