I have used thesis theme for my blog “Technology Blogs”. I was struggling for the setting position of the thumbnail in the experts. In place of thesis theme thumbnail I have used Excerpts WordPress plugin.

Blow are the steps for implementing the Thumbnail For Excerpts (Thesis Theme)

Step 1: Login to WordPress Dashboard of the Blog on which the thumbnails are to be generated and navigate to Plugins > Add New.

search_plugin wordpress

Enter the name of the plugin as “Thumbnail Excerpts”. Click on Search Plugins and on the next screen, click on “Install Now” and activate the plugin.

Step 2: Once the plugin is installed and activated, navigate to the Dashboard > Settings > Thumbs Excerpts.

Step 3: As shown in the image below, you can make the changes to configure the basic options for the thumbnail, like size, placement (alignment), Default image, link settings etc.

Step 4: Once you are done with the settings above, click on the “Save changes” button to save all the configuration settings.

That’s it. You are done with Thumbnail on your blogs’ homepage. If you want to customize the design how the thumbnail image is displayed on the homepage, you can do so by adding an effect in the Custom.css file which we will be discussing in another post.

I hope that this tutorial helped you in easily generating the thumbnails on your thesis theme homepage. Do let me know if you face any issues in doing so.
