WordPress Featured Image

“I already upload photo for my post but I see blank display on our website”. That question came from my friend who work as webmaster. He is responsible for updating the news on the office website. I promise to take a look and tell you the answer. Actually I was buying time to figure out what caused the problem.

The site has been running for more than 2 years and no significant problems during this period. That changed only version of wordpress.  I think the reason why the picture features running on the website of my friend’s office was not functioning properly is wordpress.

After look around finally I can reproduce the problem and came back with answer 🙂
