    Hi, I am testing out the Metro theme. To make sure we tie an image to each post, is it better to post the image above any text in the post itself or tie it using a Featured Image in each post? Thinking ahead so that when users share a photo on Facebook, the right image will show.

    Any suggestions on this?

    Featured image is best.

    So what kind of potential problems could arise from just uploading and inserting a normal image within the body of the post? In order to display the image in feeds and category pages, wouldn’t you need an image within the body as well?

    That’s right. The featured image won’t be displayed in the rss feed content unless you add some custom code to make this happen. If its in the content body, it will if you chose to display full content in feed.

    If you don’t add a featured image, then an image won’t display on your archive pages like category, tag and author archives.
