Since the release of WordPress 2.9, themes released by web2feel are using a new feature to enable thumbnails on featured posts and post excerpts etc. Earlier we have been using the Timthumb script from Darrenhoyt.com. This involved creating a customfield and applying the required image url to it. But with the release of WordPress 2.9 we have a new feature called the_post_thumbnail feature. This enables us to add a thumbnail image to any of our post from the post editor itself. Yes, we do not need to use any customfields anymore. I have relied on this feature on my new themes like Multichrome , Gamerpress, Pristilo etc.This feature will be used on all new themes from web2feel.com.
It is very very easy to enable thumbnails using this new feature , but since it is a new feature some users are confused how to do this. I have been getting many emails asking how to enable thumbnails on these latest themes. So I decided to go ahead and create a small screencast on how to do this. You can watch it below.
[ I have not made any screencasts before. I took an hour or so to make a 3 min screencast with so many outtakes..lol. Hope I was coherent and it was helpful to you]
