I am using WordPress 3.4.1. I need to display the featured image of a page. How can I get the featured image URL by particular page ID. Any help?

Did you try anything? Its always helpful to share what you have tried.

$url = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id($post_id) );

Or if you want to get the image by image size.

$src = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id($post_id), 'thumbnail_size' );
$url = $src[0];




  • Actually, this is wrong - it suggests that you can get pass the size as a parameter, but that's not accurate. Neither function accepts a parameter. Jun 20, 2014 at 3:35
  • You can use wp_get_attachment_image_url() instead of wp_get_attachment_image_src() nowadays so you don't have to do that $src[0] part.

As of Wordpress 4.4.0, we can use get_the_post_thumbnail_url():

$url = get_the_post_thumbnail_url( $post_id, 'thumbnail' );

    Finally, it was about the time.
