Featured images are a standard feature in WordPress, but not every Genesis child theme will insert them on your site’s pages.

Even more troublesome, is if you have custom post types with archive pages that you would like to have a featured image set on. These archive pages usually have no option to set a featured image without editing theme files and messing around with complicated code.

This plugin will allow you to set a different banner style image on every page on your site including custom post type archive pages. See the screenshots for an example of what type of header image you can use.

You can set the featured image for a custom post type archive page by clicking “Featured Image” on the admin menu for that post type. Check out the screenshots and FAQs for more info.

This plugin requires your site to be using a Genesis child theme in order to work. It is not compatible with other themes.
