    I am having trouble making the featured images for my posts show on the front page of my website.

    I followed the instructions for adding the featured images option to a genesis grid loop and it still didn’t work. I’m not good with CSS so I need help figuring out where I’m going wrong.

    The URL I’m working on is: http://www.variousconversations.com

    I forgot to include that I want the featured image to appear above the title. Also, I want two posts per row.

    Depending on the code you used… did you go into the Genesis settings and turn on featured images?

    Best,

    Yes.

    I feel like I followed every direction in each tutorial to no avail.

    OK, so I’m on the same page with you now. You’ve set image sizes in your grid loop to 0, and you’re just wanting to manually insert the featured image via code, so that you can have it appear before the post title.

    What does your file look like? Are you using something like add_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'genesis_do_post_image', 8 );?

    @franktirado I’m not sure what tutorial you’ve been following for this. There are several excellent examples to follow, but I couldn’t find any that did what you want – images before the post title for Minimum Pro. – so I put one together here:
    Front Page Featured Images With Minimum Pro – Bigger & Bolder Edition

    You’ll have to undo what you’ve started with the other setup as this does not modify the genesis grid settings, but the balance should be Ok to follow from there.

    Full size sample result.

    Probably better to start your own thread, and be more specific about what exactly you’ve done. It sounds like you need to unhook (or otherwise tell it not to show) the standard featured image, so you can have it placed before the title.

    what ls supposed to happen with this code …

    i understood that the thumbnail would appear before the title on both the feature page and the category/archive page or is this just code for the feature page …

    i’ve just looked on franktirdo’s site and his site shows:

    1. the thumbnail before the title on the featured page …
    2. the thumbnail to the left of the title on the category/archive page …
    3. no image on the single post page …

    i guess it’s two different things …

    is there code to add the thumbnail before the title on a category/archive page …

    (This is different question to Frank’s.)

    Dashboard: Genesis Menu > Theme Settings > Content Archives >
    Select (check): “Include the Featured Image?”

    See Suzanne Ahjira:
    Move The Post Image Before The Post Title on Genesis Blog, Archive and Search Results Pages

    in functions.php:

    remove_action( 'genesis_entry_content', 'genesis_do_post_image', 8 );
    add_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'genesis_do_post_image', 3 );
