Set featured image option not showing up after adding

add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

Did you add the thumbnail into your page template?

       if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) { // check if the post has a Post Thumbnail assigned to it.

EDIT: I'm sorry, I think I mis-understood the problem. Just to clarify, you are not seeing the option to attach a Featured Image to a page or post?

I too am having the same issue.

Yes, the issue was that there is a new version of the custom post plugin and in the plugin you have to specify the settings for displaying the post-tumbnails.

Thanks for your reply,

Kyle, I'm curious what did you have to change in the plugin to get this working for you?

Tim (and anyone else with this problem). From the CPT UI menu, click Add/Edit Post Types. Select the Post Type you wish to edit ('Portfolio'). There is a section called 'Settings'. Scroll down, and you'll see the 'Supports' section, which has an option for 'Featured Image'.

Thanks Jaclyn, saved me from needless Googling on this, don't think I would have noticed it.

Thank you Jaclyn! :-)
