    I’m using Going Green Pro in conjunction with bbPress, and the forum home is rendering with a featured image. Not sure how it “picked” the featured image, or how to change it.

    Any ideas or suggestions? You’ll see the problem here: http://socalhiker.net/community/

    So when you open up the Forum page under Pages – you don’t see a featured image selected there?

    There is no “Forum” page. It’s auto-generated by bbPress.

    Jeff, add this to your style sheet and see if it works for you. It worked for me in Firebug. Sorry I wasn’t able to get back to this. For some reason I wasn’t subscribed and wasn’t getting your replies.

    .post-0 img {
    display: none;
    }

    I noticed on my screen – your primary sidebar is way at the bottom also. Is it like that for you too?

    Look for this in your style sheet – change 90% to 92%. The demo has it set 92%.

    .site-inner {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);
    clear: both;
    margin: -16rem auto 0;
    max-width: 1140px;
    padding: 10px;
    position: relative;
    width: 90%;
    z-index: 9;
    }

    Anitac, I use Chrome as my default, and the sidebar shows correctly there. I have previously tested Firefox and Safari and it was working, but after you mentioned that, I tested FF and sure enough — the sidebar is pushed down below. I’m digging into it now.

    The other CSS didn’t work. What I’m really hoping for is to find out how to actually SPECIFY a featured image for the forum index; not just hide it.

    Thanks Anitac. Interesting about the 92% in the demo. I double checked the original ZIP download of the theme and it has it at 90% (which I did not change). I’ve added that change and it’s working in Firefox now.

    I’ve seen that post in the bbPress forums. I’m not actually looking to add images to forums, but to control the image that is on the index page (the list of all forums).

    To be super-clear:

    This is the forum index: http://socalhiker.net/community/
    It is displaying a featured image, but I don’t have any clue where it’s getting it from.

    This is a sample forum: http://socalhiker.net/community/forum/got-a-question/
    It is not displaying a featured image, and I’m fine with that.

    The main forum index is POST-0. The sample forum is POST-2950. Here’s the link to the Facebook image in that the index – http://i1.wp.com/socalhiker.net/wp-content/uploads/facebook_60.png?resize=900%2C440. Check your media files to see it you can find it. Delete it and let’s see what happens.

    I deleted the Facebook image and it picked up an RSS icon. http://socalhiker.net/community/

    Weird.

    Did you delete it from the Media area or did you go to the file folder on the server?

    I deleted it from the Media Library.

    I then deleted the RSS icon, and it picked up a Twitter icon. All three of these were old images no longer used.

    So then I created a replacement image with the same name as the twitter icon, and uploaded that using FTP, overwriting the original icon:

    http://socalhiker.net/wp-content/uploads/twitter_60.png

    This is a total cludge, but I’m okay with that for now. The only problem is that Jetpack Photon (which I use for image caching, is still caching the old Twitter icon. Reading their docs (http://jetpack.me/support/photon/) images are cached “forever” and the only way to clear the cache is to rename the image.

    So… I went into phpmyadmin and changed the image URL. Now it’s showing the “correct” image. But it’s still voodoo black magic.

    There has got to be a better way.
