    Hi,

    I have started using ‘covers’ at the head of my posts, but the image doesn’t show on the blog page – just the title. Is there a setting to remedy this please? One that doesn’t include creating a ‘header’ as such.

    I prefer the ‘cover format.

    Thank you

    Hi there,

    unfortunately not as the Cover Block doesn’t support featured images which is what would be required.

    Instead – why not use a Header Element ? They can dynamically display the Post title and meta over the featured image.

    Hi,

    Thank you for this, and I have created a header. And this works in the post itself very well.

    But I still can’t get a ‘thumbnail’/preview image on the blog or homepage.

    Can you please advise 🙂

    Doesn’t look like you have added a featured image to that post.
    By adding the featured image, you can then create a single header element, and set the background image to Featured Image and then set the Display Rules to all posts.

    Thank you.

    But i wanted that image on that post only.

    Can I just get the header to show as a thumbnail on the blog/front pages at all?

    🙂

    Hi,

    Sorry, not quite as resolved as I thought. Now I have added featured image and set the header to featured image. But the post now shows the full header and a smaller version just below…..

    In there Header Element there is an Option to Display Featured Image – uncheck this to remove it from the post content. It will then only display in above the content.
