    I don’t understand why most of the themes look wonderful in the picture before you buy them and once you do, you have a hard time making it look like the one in the picture.

    Can someone explain to me how I can post an image picture BEFORE the first post on my blog that doesn’t move or change before I lose my sense. I tried everything. Is this something only the designer did to make it look nice to market it or is it possible to do something like that?

    FRUSTRATED!

    And I’m referring to the interior image in this picture here before the first post.

    Edit the post. Click the image upload button. The image must be listed in the Gallery tab. Uploading an image while editing your post creates an association in the db whereby WP sees the image as “attached” to the post.

    This is the picture that is shown there automatically.

    We did make a setting to turn this off and on.

    So you mean I would edit the first post in the blog then click the image upload button, and upload any image I want? But that will automatically upload the image IN the post not outside the post :/

    Sorry, I’m confused.

    It will only put the image in the post if you click the “insert into post” button.

    Do not click that link. Just close the window.

    Sorry sillyandrea, I still can’t figure out how to do this thing.

    1. I edited the last post I have on my blog
    2. I clicked on the upload image function
    3. I uploaded an image I already have in the gallery
    4. I closed the window
    5. Updated the post

    Nothing.

    I even tried clicking on the “set as featured image” option but still the image didn’t come out like the picture. Anyway, nevermind.

    Thanks anyway.

    Can I get a link to your site, so I can go look?
