    How can I display the small thumbnail image beside the news items in the sidebar, see:

    Only one of them shows a thumbnail image, two don’t. Would like to know how to do that.



    Hey wvanderzee,

    In each of your posts, make sure that you are setting at least one image in the Featured Media meta box below the visual editor. That should give the theme the image to manipulate and use for the widgets and previews.




    Yes, but using the Featured Media will display a large image at top of the article, which we don’t want. It shows two buttons: 1. Add Image to slideshow and 2. Add Video or Iframe by URL. When using the first option, the image is used for a slideshow. For the news articles we like to use a featured image, but no slideshow. Is that possible?


    You can remove the slideshow from your news articles. Open up includes/loop-index.php and replace following code:

    //echo slideshow
    if($slider && $slider->slidecount) echo $slider->display();


    //echo slideshow
    if($slider && $slider->slidecount) echo $slider->display();

    or remove this code completely if you don’t want to display the slideshow on archive pages, etc. too.
