I like to play around and figure out the site before I load my content in so I know what I am doing.
On the sample site, the main blog page has a preview/featured image of boats that you can click on to view the actual post (For Example: Entry with Gallery attached). I can't seem to figure out how to get that option in my site. I've played around with it a bit and all I get is the small image that appears when I hover over the title. How do I get it to be like the sample site?
