I recently bought the focus pro theme and have set the content archives to display featured images in the Genesis settings tab.
But the featured images are still not showing, I'm not sure whether it's down to the fact that the focus pro theme doesn't support featured images or whether it's something I am doing wrong.
Any help would be appreciated since I really need featured images on my posts

In the Admin area go to Genesis -> Theme Settings and go to the Content Archives section.
If you have Display Content selected, try entering in a value for Limit Content...say maybe 300.
Make sure Include Featured Image is selected and pick the size you want.
Finally, don't forget to actually set a featured image for your posts.
Give that a try. This configuration should show the featured image.

Hi thanks for your reply. Unfortunately this does not work. It seems that the featured images option does not work on the Focus Pro theme.August 27, 2014 at 10:30 am #121353
Hmmm. I got favorable results on my test site using the Focus Pro Theme.
Do you have both Genesis and WordPress up to date?

Hi, yes I have the latest WordPress updates and I have only just purchased the theme which is up to date. Can't seem to work out the problem. Will the magazine pro theme likely work better?August 27, 2014 at 10:50 am #121359
So you have a featured image for this post set?
If not, could you set one temporarily?
If you haven't changed the theme code, then featured images should work with those settings.
All you can do is give it a try in regards to Magazine Pro.

HI, that post is not a featured image I used the insert more option, to display the an section of the post including the image inside the post.
I haven't messed with the code, I am not technically minded to do that.August 27, 2014 at 11:42 am #121373
Could you try setting a featured image on that post for testing purposes?
August 27, 2014 at 12:05 pm #121378
Sure, Ive added a image to that post now.August 27, 2014 at 12:17 pm #121382
Sweet. So the featured image is showing - http://whosjamie.com/category/building-websites/.
Take note that this setting only works on archive/category pages.
If you want your featured image to display on single posts, then a tutorial like this would help:

Wow how did you get that to display?
Maybe I am not understanding how this works correctly. Also the tutorial you sent me is confusing! I think I mentioned that I know nothing about HTML or CSS.
I just want to be able to display my chosen image to each post I write. Could you tell me how to do this in simple steps, that would be much appreciated 🙂August 27, 2014 at 12:38 pm #121403
Here are some basics. If you need more functionality than what I explain, just say so and I'll try to provide you with easy to understand code.
The featured image setting in Genesis -> Theme Settings is for archive type pages such as categories, tags...etc. When a reader lands on one of those pages, your excerpt plus featured image will display based on how you have it configured in those settings.
Displaying your featured image on a single post/page is a bit more difficult.
I hope I've explained this in a way that makes sense!

Yes you have but I wish to know how I can display feature images to show up on my home page. Where it displays all my posts, Surely there is a simple way it to display the featured image on the home page as it does for the archive page.August 27, 2014 at 12:53 pm #121410
Actually, they should be showing.
Please try this.
- Go to this post - http://whosjamie.com/building-websites/block-spam-comments/
- Remove the Insert Read More tag you used
- Save the post
Basically we want the Genesis Theme settings to control this.
August 27, 2014 at 12:55 pm #121411
Ive done that but as you can see now it's displaying the whole post arghhhh!August 27, 2014 at 12:59 pm #121413
Ok. You can correct this.
- Go to Genesis -> Theme Settings and look for the 'Content Archives' section
- In the 'Select one of the following' dropdown, select 'Display Post Content'
- Then in 'Limit content to', insert the number of characters you want to show. I'd start with 300.
That should fix the whole post from being shown.

Hi, nope. It was already set to that in the settings, look http://gyazo.com/22cdfeea1c0595f4d419ccfe36ac24bbAugust 27, 2014 at 1:08 pm #121416
Make sure that Settings -> Reading 'Front Page Displays' is set to 'your latest posts'.

Anything else I can try or is it the theme that is not allowing it?
