    Instead of having icons for the Popular and Recent posts, is there a way to pull a featured image, or at least an image from the post?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Hi JoshMathis!

    Please go to Appearance > Widgets and add “Flagship Latest News” widget to any needed widget area.

    Cheers!

    I’m sorry, I believe I misspoke. The widget I’m talking about is the Sentence Combo Widget – under the tabs “Popular” and “Recent,” it displays an icon based on what type of post it is – Image, Video, etc. – but I would like to replace those icons with a thumbnail of an image pulled from the post. Normally I’d say it could be pulled from the featured image, but since I don’t see a place for that in this theme, I was hoping there would be another way.

    Thanks!

    Hey!

    You have posted under Flagship theme and not Sentence theme so i thought you were using Flagship
    You can add Featured media to blog posts in Sentence and they should be displayed in Combo Widget as shown in screenshot here http://i.imgur.com/9IpHd9N.jpg
    Can you post the link to your website? We may need a temporary admin login as well

    Oops, sorry! New to this.

    The site is rebelem.com

    That screenshot is pretty much what I’m looking to do. Two things: 1.) there isn’t anywhere in the widget to add the featured media, and 2.) when I installed the theme, I stopped seeing a place to add a featured image.

    Hey!

    Do you mind creating a temporary admin login and posting it here privately so i can take a look?

    Best regards,

    Sorry for the delay. Are y’all still around? Looks like we’ve got like an 8 hour time difference, but if you’re still able to look at this, I’ll be happy to post an admin ID. Thanks again.

    Hi!

    You can add featured image using the Featured Media > Add Image to Slidehow option. Usually, the first image that you added is going to be use as featured image.

    Cheers!

    I kept editing this post as I kept figuring stuff out and reading other threads, so I’m sorry if I’ve caused any confusion…

    To clarify (since I messed up), I’m still talking about the Sentence theme.

    I added featured images via the slideshow, but I had to use some custom CSS to keep the slideshow from displaying on the home page or the posts themselves; is there a more efficient way to do this? I don’t foresee ever using a slideshow on this site, so if there were a way to just hide it so that it won’t ever display, but I can keep the Featured Image thumbnail, that would be ideal.

    Hey!

    No, in my opinion hiding the slideshow with css is the most flexible and best solution.

    Cheers!

    Well right now I use CSS to hide each individual post; is there CSS code that will hide the slideshow always, so I or the client don’t have to do it every time a new post is made?

    Hi!

    Seems like you have already figured it out! If not, please post a link to your page where you have featured image that you would like to remove

    Best regards,
