Hi Josse,
 
To add featured images, you can go to Dashboard / Appearance / Editor, open the content-single.php file in DW Argo theme, and find this code (somewhere at top of the file):

 <div class="entry-inner">

Then add the following code right under it:

 <?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) : ?>
<div class="featured-image">
<?php the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail'); ?>
</div>
<?php endif; ?>

Also, you’ll need to add CSS code for the featured image section, so go to Dashboard / Appearance / Customize / Custom Code, and add this code below to Header script:

 <style>
.featured-image {
margin-bottom: 20px;
}
</style>

Hope that helps!

this works but I would like the size of the image to fill the container rather than be a small thumbnail. How do I do this?

I figured it out. I changed the settings of my thumbnail image under Settings > Media in my wordpress admin

Hi,

sorry I tried but I didn’t figure it out.

Code seems ok into content-single page & custom,
I’ve changed thumbnail’s size into settings > media

But it’s not working : http://www.newsresources.org/sinspirer-dautres-metiers-pour-mieux-faire-celui-de-journaliste

Could you help ?

Thanks a lot !

Hi Ced !
We have checked your site, the issue is due you using the image size small.
Currently, the minimal size for featured post is 600x600px and you need to use images equal or larger than that size.
I could only recommend you to use the normal post instead of featured post to get rid of the blurry images issue & display thumbnail in the single post. Let me know if you need anything else.
Hope this helps !

Hi Dominic,
thanks a lot for your quick help.

Is there a way to change the height of a featured post ? Would like to be able to use a 600x150px for example.

Thanks !

Cédric

Hi Ced !
Of course, you can use the image 600 x 150 px and even  any images have larger width than 600px.
