Recent posts widget in latest news section – featured image not displaying

Hello - The featured image from my blog posts are not being displayed in the recent posts widget in the latest news section on my static front page (https://www.uglyresearch.com/#latest-news). However, they do appear on another blog that also uses the Illdy theme. Please see https://swiftlydigital.com/.
Please let me know how to enable the featured image in the recent posts in latest news.

Thanks,

Jeff

Hi - Inspecting the page source, it appears the missing rendered code (example) is:
<div class="post-image" style="background-image: url('https://i2.wp.com/www.uglyresearch.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/translators.jpg');"></div>

Thanks,

Jeff

Hi Jeff

Hope you are having a good day and thank you for your question :slight_smile:
Most probably it was achieved by the third party plugins :wink: try t search for third-party plugins for this, you can start it with Jetpack

Thanks!

Hello - I removed Jetpack and disabled all plugins. However, the featured image still does not appear. Also, I switched to the original Illdy theme from a child theme and still no featured image. What else do you suggest?

Thank you,

Jeff

Hi - I just figured out the problem. Embarrassing as it is, I realize we have only been inserting the blog image in code and not setting the featured image. All is well. Thank you for a great them and excellent support.

Cheers,

Jeff
