How to Fix Featured Images Appearing Twice in WordPress Posts

August 30, 2019

Hello and welcome to WPBeginner. Today I’ll
show you how to fix featured images from appearing twice in WordPress posts. If you are new to working with posts in WordPress,
then you’ve probably seen the featured image section which is a great way to showcase an
image. While creating a new post, click on set featured
image, choose the image to use and click set featured image. You will see it displayed down
here. Now with some people since they don’t see it
in the editor box, they think they did something wrong and will go to add media, find the image
again and insert into post. when you do that to both areas, you will have
the image show up twice, like this and you don’t want that. To fix it just go back into your post and remove
the image from here and click update and you’ll have one featured image for your post. I hope you liked this video and found it helpful.
