How to set featured image
  • If you look at https://bepia.wordpress.com/ - my first post using MArs Edit was how to spot fortune teller scams. The little picture to the left did not appear automatically. I had to go to the admin site and set the featured image.

    Can I set the featured image from MarsEdit?

    The main picture in the post worked fine - https://bepia.wordpress.com/2014/09/01/spotting-fortune-teller-scams/
  • Hi Paul - Unfortunately MarsEdit doesn't have explicit support for WordPress's featured images. Some folks have come up with work arounds that involve e.g. installing a custom plugin on the WordPress end to interpret either the first image in the post as featured, or to allow specifying the featured image with a kind of special coded markup in the post.

    Here's an example of such a plugin, though I haven't tested it myself:

    I'm sorry the app doesn't support this as well as it could. It is something that I hope to improve upon in the future.
