The best way is to create a child theme so that when changes are made to 2017 theme and you update your theme with repository, your changes are not lost.

How to create a child theme

Then go to the theme folder/template-parts/post/content.php

Approx edit line 54 to add native function get_the_post_thumbnail(); to div.entry-content

below is the code

<div class="entry-content">
        /* translators: %s: Name of current post */
        the_content( sprintf(
            __( 'Continue reading<span class="screen-reader-text"> "%s"</span>', 'twentyseventeen' ),
        ) );

        wp_link_pages( array(
            'before'      => '<div class="page-links">' . __( 'Pages:', 'twentyseventeen' ),
            'after'       => '</div>',
            'link_before' => '<span class="page-number">',
            'link_after'  => '</span>',
        ) );
    </div><!-- .entry-content -->

  • Just add <?php echo wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id( get_the_ID() ) ); ?> to your code markup code <header class="entry-header"> <img src="<?php echo wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id( get_the_ID() ) ); ?>"> </header>
