The WordPress backend is packed full of great features, but there are often plugins that can add to these even further to improve the user experience. In this guide I’m going to show you how to show WordPress featured images in the ACP.
The Posts and Pages areas are great and have some excellent columns which make sorting your posts and pages easy, but one thing that is missing is the ability to show the post/page featured image. However, this feature can be achieved simply by installing a great plugin developed by Austin Passy.
The plugin is called ‘Featured Image Column’, and simply enables the user to show WordPress featured images in the ACP in both Posts and Pages sections. The column is added just before the title, like so:
As you can see from above, a new column has been added over on the left which shows a thumbnail of the featured image, which is a really nice addition. This also shows on the Pages section should you happen to use featured images on pages, though this is rarely used in WordPress.
