    Hi, is there a template tag for using the featured image within the HTML content section?

    Something like {{post_thumbnail}} or {{post_image}}…

    I need to use the featured image as an image in the content rather than just the background. I could create a custom field but would prefer to avoid that is possible.

    Thank you!

    Oh, wanted to add… I need it to use the featured image of the page the page header is being used on — not the featured image on the page header itself — hope that makes sense. πŸ™‚

    Doh, found it.

    {{custom_field._thumbnail_id}}

    I guess one follow-up question.

    Do page header {{custom_field}} tags work with ACF?

    Nevermind, I found out it does.

    A thread all to myself! πŸ˜‰

    Hi Tom. Follow-up question.

    Is there a way to target specific image sizes with {{custom_field._thumbnail_id}}?

    Thanks!

    There is!

    Try this:

    add_filter( 'generate_page_header_thumbnail_id_size', 'tu_adjust_page_header_featured_image' );
    function tu_adjust_page_header_featured_image() {
        return 'full';
    }

    Hi Tom, I’m not a coder so beware!

    I follow everything up to why you provided the “add_filter” php??? code snippet, but where do I add this code? Do I use the Elements functionality? Or do I need to install the “Code Snippets” plugin?

    Just a nudge in the right direction and I’ll probably “get it.” Thanks!

    Hi there,

    that code is PHP – this article explains the options:

    TLDR: Code Snippets is the method we recommend if you’re not using a Child Theme
