I am trying to add thumbnails to my theme and unfortunately I can't seem to be able to assign them. I think my theme has kind of a weird functions.php file and that MIGHT have something to do with it.
I have added:
add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
to my themes functions.php file.
And I have uploaded a Feature Image to a post.
But I don't see anyway to assign that featured image as a thumbnail (it shows in the body of the post fine, but when I look on the category page, it instead shows the default "no image available" where it should be showing a thumbnail.
Any help appreciated.
BTW: I am using WordPress 3.3.1. and the theme is called Magasin Uno Reloaded 1.1 but the creator doesn't seem to offer any support since itis a free theme.
Actually exists? Should I look in the theme's functions.php file? (It ain't in there). I have also looked in the includes//functions.php and it doesn't seem to be in there, either. Maybe i have to add that function somewhere?
Well, for what it is worth, the problem was that I was trying to create featured images by hotlinking to them. Unfortunately,wordpress doesn't allow you to create thumbnails from an image that you hotlink to. You have to use the browser upload feature and actually upload it (apparently).
Well, yeah, basically no thumbnail image exists until you upload it. Additionally hotlinking is generally a bad idea unless you have the permission of the source. Basically what you're doing is stealing their image to display on your site, and using their bandwidth to do it. One of these days you'll open the page and see a "replacement - no - stealing - allowed" image in it's place when they figure it out and add hotlink protection.
No suspicion intended, education. Many people do this and don't even realize what they are doing, or even consider it might be wrong. Hotlinking by definition is linking to a resource on an external server.
If your coppermine gallery is on the same domain, you can just use
... but if it's a dedi or VPS and it's actually a different domain (but same server,) yes you'll have to use the full URL.
