Hi all,

The featured images for your products and for your regular WordPress posts are different, so you'd add those images differently.  See how to do so here:  Exchange Codex:  How Do I Show the Product Featured Image on Archive/Category Pages

I am having this issue as well with a custom theme I am integrating Exchange into.

in my functions.php i have

// Add featured image support
add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

and in the archive.php template in the loop I have

$post_id = get_the_ID();

and no image is being displayed. If it works the same as featured images on posts why aren't the pictures displaying?

Hi Gerroald,

Thanks for the reply.  I am familiar with adding the featured image to a page layout, but when I do this no image is displayed.  

Are you saying that the_post_thumbnail is supposed to pull the Exchange product featured image?  If so then that's great, but something must be wrong with the product I've been testing with.

Hello Edward & Stereoscenis,

The category or archive pages are actually controlled by your theme, not by Exchange.  So there isn't a way to set this just in Exchange; you'd need to to edit your theme's archive template file.  Below is some links that I think you may find helpful.

add featured image to archive page


I hope this helps!

This is the problem I am facing and I believe a number of others as well.  Exchange seems to save its "Featured Images" as a custom meta type and not as the traditional WordPress "Featured Image."  This is a strange problem that I did not anticipate and it's basically hanging me up at the moment.

I have been testing the iThemes Exchange ecommerce for wordpress. Please let me know what plug in do I need to purchase or what method I need in order to display pictures of sale items on the store category page such as - http://www.1stlastonly.com/product-category/fine-gold-jewelry/ . All items in that particular category are listed properly but in text only.
Thank you
