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.

“I bar” - when people ask me what I miss about #Italy, that’s one of the answers. Not a clubbing bar, but the ubiquitous local bars where coffee is the main drug they serve. The hustle & bustle on a crowded morning, the jostling for a space at the bar, your #espresso being served at the absolute right temp to consume immediately. And watching a master barista in a crowded bar is to be experienced - part traffic conductor and part artist. 👏💪👍 And the unique sugar packets! Thanks Jill for sending me one direct from Italy ❤️❤️ Is it seriously February? California you are spoiling me. #SF #nofilter Couldn’t resist these whimsical, colorful notebooks! Do you have a notebook problem, too? 😱 #paper #notebook # Chocolate croissant, #espresso. #Austin #mañana Iced horchata, molasses cookie. #Austin Hello, #queso. #austin
