To include images for Each post you have to create custom fields. What you need to do is create a new key called ?featured? as well as include the image source you want to show. Any size of images is okay, coz it will be resize automatically.
Remember, The images MUST BE ON YOUR OWN DOMAIN to make the auot-resizing work.
Again, Some important things to note regarding automatic image resizing:
The theme uses the TimThumb PHP script to automatically create and resize the featured images, and in order for it to work properly you need to take note of the following things first:
# TimThumb requires the GD library, which is available on any host sever with PHP 4.3+ installed.
# The theme has a cache folder for the thumbnail images located at falkner/cache which requires proper write permissions. If your host server doesn?t allow this by default, be sure to manually change the /cache/ folder permissions to 777 or 755.
# Use absolute paths for your images in the custom fields. for example http://yourdomain.com/wp-content/uploads/images.jpg
# If your Hosted your site in Hostgator and your image didn?t appear after following all the instruction. Try to contact hostgator, tell them the problem and ask them to get ur site whitelisted on the mod_security stuff. There?s a security function in hostgator that prevents the timthumb from working.
