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.

Meal planning for the week - done. And a little meal prep by roasting 5 trays of squash (remember my garden harvest pic?) and sweet potatoes. And sausages, and onions. And instant pot spaghetti squash. Lots of leftovers for lunches and to remake in the following days. Do you meal plan?

Portland! It was super quick and full of meetings with lovely colleagues as I head back to work soon, and so much delicious #espresso. I have to get back here so, so soon to properly see the city.
Just posted the template I use for year-end reflection and goal setting. Let me know if you end up using it! Link in profile. #goals #goalsetting #newyearsgoals
Happy New Year! Traditional first #espresso of the year to start things off. This is the time of year I do some reflecting back and planning for what’s ahead (with help...it’s starting to get crowded in here). I’ll share my template this week so you can reflect and plan, too. #2020
