A featured image will be displayed in the slider, it will link to the created post, in which you will find the thumbnail, this thumbnail will also be used on your front page beside the article, this thumbnail can be linked to an external video or image/ once clicked – this video or image will open in lightbox.
A featured image is uploaded by “Set featured image => Pick image => Use as featured image” (below the post thumbnail options)
Update: After some extra testing I was able to replicate your problem. Kriesi will be notified of this bug.July 6, 2011 at 7:42 am #47633
Chris sent me a mail regarding this issue. I tested a bit and couldn’t reproduce the bug. The “Post Thumbnail” field (which can be seen in the screenshot/documentation) is now called “Featured Image”. The reason why the headline changed is that WP 3.0 introduced a native featured image function which replaced Kriesis “post thumbnail/preview image” function (he used it for < WP 3.0).
Like Chris explained above: “A featured image is uploaded by “Set featured image => Pick image => Use as featured image” (below the post thumbnail options)”. Then set the dropdown in the “post thumbnail options” field to “open larger version of image…” and enter your youtube or vimeo link in the “Full Size Pic or Video for Lightbox” text field. You can also use another image instead of a video.July 8, 2011 at 12:23 am #47634
