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.

California in November...or...don’t throw crackers at a peacock to get it to go away. 😂 Run, don’t walk: @traderjoes now has “Stelle di Notte” aka Pan di Stelle aka delicious iconic cookies from Italy (and made there too, from the label). #pandistelle #Italy Solo coffee trip means the diaper bag can stay at home and my used-to-be-everyday Furla purse can come out. 😂 #thatmomlifetho #espresso #cortado A look inside The Artful Baker by @cafefernando on my IG Story today! One of the most gorgeous cookbooks I’ve ever seen, and I even get a shout out inside! Can’t wait to start baking from it. #notsponsored #talentedfriends Testing chocolate… Only because I have to! “Have to“ because my beloved Fireworks chocolate is out of season right now. Although I can always get one from Chuao, Trader Joe’s makes a comparable bar for less than half the price. So far the dark chocolate caramel bar and the cold brew bars are tasty! #notanAd #IWish :) Meal planning is the only reason I don’t eat out every night of the week right now with a newborn.
