Unlink featured image in posts (don’t link to larger image)

I have featured images set to link to the post (Thumbnail Options). But in the individual posts the images link to larger images and that’s not useful in my case. Can I turn that off? I do still want the featured images on the blog home (etc.) to be linked to the individual posts. Thanks!

Hi @denisseattle,

Fellow forum member here. If you’re wanting to remove the featured image from the individual posts, you can use the following CSS to hide it. Then, if needed, you’re free to add your own images via the WordPress media library.

Add this CSS to your child theme’s style[x].css file. Alternatively, you can navigate to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS and add it there.

body.single .wp-post-image {

When adding images to individual posts, you can remove the clickable link by selecting “link to none” in the media manager. See attached photo.

This isn’t the most elegant solution, but it should be sufficient.
