This Cyber Monday Envato Tuts+ courses will be reduced to just $3. Don't miss out.

Up until the release of WordPress 2.9, setting up "post-image" support for your blog was a bit more tedious a task than it really needed to be. Luckily, that's no longer an issue. I'll show you how to get setup in this four minute video quick tip.

Step 1. Edit your Functions.php Page

Step 2. Insert the Image Tag into your Loop

Within the "if have_posts()" loop, simply place this piece of code anywhere you like. At that point, WordPress will insert an image tag onto the page accordingly. Please note that you'll have access to a "wp-post-image" class that you may then work with to format/style the image.
