  2. Hi Phil, Its probably calling a category of posts, you may need to create a category called featured or something like that and put a post in there with the image :) Can you post the code for the index.php and header.php?

  5. yeah you need a featured post category in your posts and it searches for the featured image. So I would create a category called featured and see how that works (if not featured, then try feature).

    Also look to see if there are any plugins that came with it for the featured post like featuredgallery or something like that :) it might be under the appearance (in the drop down on the left :))

    Let me know if that helps :) alternatively if you set me up as an admin user for the site i'll have a looksee and set it up for you :)

    Thanks for the help so far Chris.

    I created the feature/d catergory but didnt seem to help.

    Ive sent you a PM with a user and password..

    Thanks alot.

    Phil
     
  7. When I look on the homepage, after looking on the post, it does display the post in the main feature section. just not the image for some reason :confused:
