    Is it possible to make a blog post/featured image conditional?

    If mobile display this post/image (with mobile friendly featured image).
    If desktop or tablet display this post/image (with desktop friendly featured image).

    Just curious about your thoughts. I like how my featured image looks on a desktop, but I would design it differently for a mobile.

    Let me know and thanka!

    Hi there,

    to do so would require Custom Fields and some custom code.
    Is the issue with the image because the text included within is too small on mobile?

    Got it. Yes, the text is smaller and it doesn’t look ‘featured’ in size compared to the blog posts underneath it.

    Just wanted to add…

    My homepage settings is set to ‘show latest posts’ rather than a page. I made the ‘featured’ blog post sticky so that it always appears on the top of the page (with the different photo dimensions).

    Maybe I need to make the homepage a static page to accomplish what I want to do.

    Thanks,
    Kris

    Maybe a static page would be best. Personally i would advise against using text in an image, aside of the issue with responsiveness, the text cannot be indexed. Have you thought of using a the Header Element as your static page and post headers:

    When you mention going against using the text in the image because of indexing…

    I chose to do it this way because the images are friendly to share on the Pinterest platform.

    I don’t display the Post title on the blog archive page (I think that is what you call it) but it appears when you go to the actual post.

    Will the indexing (I assume you are saying for search engines like google) be impacted because of this design? Am I making sense?

    Thanks,
    Kris

    You won’t be penalised by the Search Engines for having text in an image, they just won’t be able to crawl it.

    Most of the SEO plugins like Yoast have an option to choose the featured images you would like displayed on Social Networks, so you can have a different image to the actual post.
