How to use Featured Images with WordPress

Here’s the slides from my presentation at WordCamp NYC.

I cover WordPress featured images in the presentation mainly from a user standpoint and not from a developer’s standpoint, though I include some tips and suggestions for users curious about experimenting with code at the end.

Covered in the presentation are:

  • what are featured images
  • the evolution of featured images in WordPress Codex
  • some popular & free magazine themes for WordPress
  • how to use featured images in WordPress without changing your base theme via plugins (sidebars, archives, related/random/recent posts)
  • how to start experimenting with the Featured Images code, online and through a local installation of WordPress.

I’d love to hear your feedback! The video of the presentation will be made available online at a later date, and I’ll link to that when it is available.
