How To Replace A Featured Image Posted on December 13, 2012 by Tourico Holidays How To Replace A Featured Image Adding a new featured image is easy, you just: Click on â€œassign Featured Imageâ€ located on the bottom right corner of the post editor. This will open an overlay where you choose what image to add in here. It works the same way as uploading a new image to the â€œmediaâ€ section. Now, if you are looking to replace the current featured image you need to: Click on â€œremove featured imageâ€. This will delete it from here (not from the server nor media folder). Click on â€œassign Featured Imageâ€ and follow the steps I wrote above.
