A feature of WordPress that not too many Glow Bloggers use at the moment is the Featured Image.
Features images can be added to posts and will be used by the blogs theme, either to display on the post and or to provide navigation.
for example in TwentyFourteen, the home page grid or slider is provided by posts with featured images. For example:
- Featured Content in 2014 Example Showing Featured Content in a grid on the homepage.
- Featured Content in 2014 Slider Showing Featured Content in a slider on the homepage.
Featured images will also be picked up by twitter if you post a link to a blog. Like this:
They are also shown if you paste the link to the blog into another post and on the LA home pages of Glow blogs.
