custom post types : Featured Image problem


Recommended Posts

my theme supports post-thumbnails. they work when i am adding a post.

 

however, i don't have the option to add them when i'm creating a Custom Post Type.

 

i've completed Ben Falk's Custom Post Types videos, but I'm using Coyier's Blank Theme, not twentyten.

 

still, I have the array that should allow the thumbs to work in my register_post_types funtion, e.g., 'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'thumbnail')

 

Anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thanks

It isn't something simple like the post thumbnails just not being visible on the edit page, right? To check this:

 

-- Create a new custom post

-- in the upper right corner on the edit page, click on the "screen options" tab

-- Check if there is a "Featured Image" checkbox? If it is there, I imagine that it won't be selected.

Also, one other thing I thought of... In your functions.php file, when you add the add_theme_support() line for post thumbnails, you didn't specify a specific content type (posts/pages/a custom post type/etc), right? I believe that the line should be:

 

add_theme_support('post-thumbnails');

 

rather than (or similar):

 

add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array( 'page' ) );

 

or you'll need to specify your custom post type within the array.

yeah, this is what ended up working:

 

add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails', array( 'post', 'video', 'magazine' ) );

 

thanks!
