Soon after we released the Newswire 1.0 theme, some of our clients asked if there is another way to create thumbnails except the automatic thumbnail creation, since not every posts include images. Yes, now we are very happy to announce that it’s possible to create thumbnails via custom field with the latest edition(v1.1).
Tips for thumbnail creation:
- Automatic thumbnail creation:
- Create thumbnail via custom field:
If you would like to create thumbnails for homepage and archive pages automatically, just simply upload an image and insert to the post, the thumbnail will be automatically created, no custom fields needed.
If you would like to create thumbnails via custom field instead of auto-creation, just simply add a custom field to the post:
Custom field name: thumb
Custom field value: IMAGE LINK (i.e. http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/sample.jpg)
Enjoy the new features and tell us your experience!
