Do I need to select the featured image manually?
Do I need to select the featured image manually? I'm confused, I followed everything to a T as far as I know. In the video it doesn't show him actually selecting a featured image, he only adds the images and edits the page-portfolio.php file. I couldn't get the image to display on the Portfolio page without going into the post and manually choosing a featured image.
You do need to add the featured image to the post manually. He doesn't show you this in the current video, but I believe he does in past videos, when he sets up his test portfolio posts. The template he's writing loops through all the portfolio posts, and if there's a featured image it is grabbed to display on that page. Make sure the 'pink-star' post has a featured image added.
