Wordpress now features thumbnails!

The default installation of Wordpress now features thumbnails in the search and category listings. You just have to enable them.  The first step is to select 'Gallery' in the new 'format' box.  then select 'Set featured image' (all the way at the bottom right corner) to add the image that will be the 'thumbnail' (although it is a bit larger).
Then when the pop up comes up you upload the image like you do for other images but there is a new thing at the bottom called 'Use as featured image' that you need to select.
If you do everything right then there should be images in the search results and the category listings. This is all done without any special coding.

Perhaps tomorrow I will show you how to set up pull down menus also without any coding!
