I decided to make things easier for you. If you do not identify a Featured Image, the site will now generate one for you. It will use one of the following:
- If your post includes images, the first image will be used for the Featured Image.
- If your post includes a YouTube video, a frame from the video will be used.
- If your post has only text, the title of the post will be used, superimposed over a default image.
You can always override the above by selecting a Featured Image manually.
If you are going to make a post, please include a Featured Image!! This is the image that shows up on the home page next to your post. Otherwise it’s blank and boring!
When the post is opened, the featured image shows at the top, so there is no need to add it to the body of the post.
