    I changed the “featured image” on the post Nevada Desert Sunrises. The new “featured image” now doesn’t display in the right hand column of photographs. It does, however, display in the the bottom column.

    I’ve had this problem before. I don’t often change my mind about the featured image but sometimes after I see the way the photo looks in the right hand column, I want to make a different choice. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is godguidesme.com.

    Hi there,

    It seems that the original post was made earlier this month – did you change the featured image more recently? Did it just disappear from the list, or was a substitution made for it?

    Thanks for any clarification you can provide!

    Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the original was posted earlier this month, with a different featured image. I recently edited the featured image, substituting one of the gallery photos for the original featured image. But after updating the edit, the featured image disappeared from the right column of photos even though it appears in the column below the post.

    Hi again,

    I’m testing this, and I see that I can’t get the image sidebar to update on my test blog, either. I’m going to keep digging.

    Cheers!

    Could you please follow up with me on this? I now have a new problem, which is that the right column is stagnent, i.e. not updating at all, even with a new post!! This is quite tedious, as when my followers come for looking for a new post, they will not notice a new photo and look deeper. Thanks so much!

    Hi there – we’re still looking into the original issue, so thank you for your patience.

    In terms of your new problem, could you please let me know exactly which part of the right-hand column isn’t updating correctly?

    When I look at the list of most recent posts, the first one I see listed is the one titled “Nevada Desert Blues: Loss” – which does seem to be your latest post.

    Do you see something different, or are you referring to a different part of the column?

    Hi there,

    I got some clarification – the sidebar pulls out the attached image, so if the image isn’t attached to that specific post, it won’t show up. An image becomes attached to a post if you upload it directly to that post. Images can’t be attached to more than one post.

    I’m sorry for the inconvenience!
