Hi, there: Using Newscast 2.02, WP 3.1.3.
I am trying to link a Post's Featured Image to an external hosted video (YouTube, Vimeo etc).
My Post interface screen does _not_ have all the Thumbnail-related options you describe in your documentation:I have the "Post Thumbnail Options" box, but I do _not_ have the "Post Thumbnail" box.
I do have the Featured Image box.
All my screen options are turned on, so I am not sure where the Post Thumbnail box is hiding...
So I can't follow the exact process you outline in your instructions to upload a thumbnail, and then link a video URL to it using the "Post Thumbnail Options" box. I have tried uploading a Featured Image, and then adding a link to the video in the Post Thumbnail Options box, but the best that I get with that on the Featured Image is a link to an empty internal URL- that contains the video URL appended to the end of the internal URL string.
Am I right that I need the Post Thumbnail box in order to do this correctly? Can you help me either find it, or install it correctly in the Theme?
Please also explain the relationship between the Featured Image and the Thumbnail Image. Is the Thumbnail a formatted version of a Featured Image that is used only in Newscast as the standard image on a Newscast Blog page?
Can the Featured Image and the Thumbnail be different images?
If I upload a Featured Image, does the Theme automatically detect it and use it as the Thumbnail?
Do I have to upload the same image twice, once to each box?
