Hi Rob

If you select a new post (or edit an old post) in back office Wordpress and scroll over to the far right of the page and down a bit you will see a section underneath Tags which says Featured Image, click the link and it brings you to a page to upload a photo from either the media library, Mystock library or upload from your computer.

When you have selected your photo, remember to scroll up and save post. The attached might help with the visual...

Hi Rob. We are not sure if the ability to set a featured image is theme dependent. For us, the option appears on the right-hand side, near the bottom, when we are in 'edit post' mode. Hope this helps.
