Featured image suddenly appearing at top of content

Recommended Posts


I am having a new problem today - it was fine yesterday, but now all of my featured images (needed for carousel and stuff) are appearing at the top of my content sections. I don't want them there. When there's an image in that position, it will show above it on the right.


I have tried turning off all of my plugins and it doesn't change. Any ideas on what might be causing this? I haven't made any major changes to anything today other than adding some content and images. It appears to be only happening on posts and not pages.

Hi Amanda


I've checked your site, the small image which is displaying on the right is the thumb for that page. If you go to Pagelines>site options>blogs and posts and check your settings for the thumbnail placement, make sure you uncheck 'single post pages'. This should resolve this for you.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi I am also having this problem, I have only set one post with featured image just to show you. http://loveyogaanatomy.com/opening-the-heart. I have checked the seitings as you suggest,(was going to attach a screen shot but can't see a button for it). I have left this for a long time but now I want to use the featured slider etc so will have to resolve it.

From what I can tell those images aren't Featured Images, they're images you have added via the Media Uploader and added via HTML. So you will probably want to remove those images and add a Feature images instead, if you have already, then its most likely you have disabled the option to display Featured Images. Following James instructions will resolve your issue.




You're using the Letters Section, there are no options to position the Featured Image. If you want more control you can replace the Letters section with the standard PostLoop section.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      I'm building a product catalog site. The featured image is set correctly, but the woocommerce placeholder image is displaying instead. If I click on the placeholder image, the featured image appears, and the featured image works fine as a thumbnail.
      Please view the site here: http://www.directmat.net/product/power-lock-logo-mat/
      Note: I deleted the placeholder image via FTP to see if that would inspire Quick Shop to look for the featured image. No such luck. Please help!

      Hi there!
      I'm trying to create a featured image for my new blog post. It has text in it, and when I add it as a featured image some of the text is cut off on the right.
      Could I get the ideal dimensions for featured images? Or, a way to customise the dimensions so that they are easier to fit in the way I need?
      Thank you kindly

      Many thanks

      The featured images from the search results page seem to be missing - the featured images are there when you view the individual posts and on the Magazine section blog page but there are broken links on the Search Results page. See screen shot...
      WP - 4.4.2
      Platform5 - 5.0.132
      Can provide a link to the site privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I'm wondering if it's possible to apply the featured image to a page's canvas area?
      I would like to have the featured image in a canvas on the matching page.
