Has anyone managed to get this combination to work and display post thumbnails on the mobile site?

  • Wordpress 3.3.1
  • Thesis Theme 1.8.3
  • WPTouch 1.9.38

I've activated Thesis support for Post Thumbnails:

set_post_thumbnail_size( 96, 96, true );

I know the thumbnails are created, I can see them on the main site. Any idea why WPTouch is not picking these up and instead displaying a default "camera" icon?

The site I'm testing this with is:

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Can you get WPTouch to work on your install of WordPress, using a different Theme, e.g. the default Twenty Eleven Theme? If so, then this is a Theme-specific issue that should be directed to the developer, DIYThemes. – Chip Bennett Feb 24 '12 at 14:21

Chip, you appear to be correct. I switched back to the default WP theme and there are no post images or thumbnails displayed. In fact, it appears that a theme needs to support Wordpress's new "Featured Image" functionality, which the Thesis Theme currently does not by default.

However, adding:

add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

to the theme's custom_functions.php file enabled Featured Image support and now everything works like I want it to. WPTouch now displays Post Thumnbnails for every post for which a featured image is set.
