    Hi there! I followed your tutorial on having the Recent Post + feature installed, that would give me a thumbnail of the image used + the title of the posts.
    I installed everything, but I cannot see a thumbnail of the image I used… Should I do anything with the image in my post to make it show up there in the Recent Post + feature?

    First thing to make sure of is that the image used in your post was inserted via the “Featured Image” method. Second, make sure you have the thumbnail option set to show from the widget itself.

    Well, I don’t know how to do that! I just inserted ‘media’… I have seen the option ‘featured image’ in the right menu… but if I do that the image does not show up in my post… Is there a step by step tutorial somewhere?

    The image does not show up when viewing the full article post because the featured image is really meant for the intro summary part only. But for the Recent posts widget to work, it uses that “Featured Image” to load a thumbnail.

    However, if you need this featured image to show on the full post view, you have to make more code changes then. The changes would happen in the content.php file with this code:

    
    		
    	
    	
    	 'alignnone'));
    	   break;
    	   case "small" : 
    	   the_post_thumbnail('', array('class' => 'alignleft'));
               break;
    	} 
    endif; ?>
    

    Would become:

    
     'alignnone'));
    	   break;
    	   case "small" : 
    	   the_post_thumbnail('', array('class' => 'alignleft'));
               break;
    	} 
    endif; ?>
