So I have a static page for the news page in wordpress, and its featured image as a breadcrumb image. I query it with this:
<?php the_post_thumbnail_url(get_option('page_for_posts')); ?>. The problem is this function for whatever reason outputs the featured image of the first post instead of the featured image for the posts page.
home.php looks like this (with irrelevant html code cut out)
<?php get_header(); ?> <?php the_post_thumbnail_url(get_option('page_for_posts')); ?> <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> <!-- code for the posts --> <?php endwhile; endif; ?> <?php get_footer(); ?>
