    Quick question. Can I determine which photo comes up as my thumbnail in the reader section of It seems to pull a random picture from my post….!

    The blog I need help with is:



    I checked the last several posts at and it looks to me like the featured image in the post is the one that gets used first. If that isn’t set, I believe the Reader will pick the first image in the post provided it is large enough. You cannot pick a different image manually.

    Related help page in case it helps with anything else:

    You’re right, most of the time it grabs the featured image… but there are a few, such as the 10 tips to cure your hangover and tinder one that it grabbed the first image instead of the featured one. Not sure why it does that!

    Thanks for the response :)
