Display Featured Image Below Post Title in Genesis

Do you want to display the featured image below the post title on single posts in genesis?

It is so easy to do that.

In this short article, I will show you how to do it.

Display Featured Image Below Post Title in Genesis

You simply have to add this code to the functions.php file.

add_action( 'genesis_before_entry_content', 'wg_featured_image_after_title');
function wg_featured_image_after_title() {
if (!has_post_thumbnail()) {
if (is_single()) {
printf('<figure><img src="%1s" alt="%2s"></figure>', genesis_get_image('format=url'), the_title_attribute('echo=0'));

So what I am doing here. Let me tell you in steps.

Step 1: Targeting Post Title

Firstly, I am targeting the post title using genesis hook named as genesis_before_entry_content.

Step 2: Checking If post has Thumbnail

Then I check whether the current post has a thumbnail using has_post_thumbnail(). If the post doesn’t have one, abort.

Step 3: Checking If I am on Single Post

This step includes checking the post; if it is posted, keep going; otherwise, don’t show.

Step 4: Printing the Output

Finally, the data is outputted using printf. Inside the <figure>I am adding img .

If you have noticed, I am referencing image source using %1s. genesis_get_image('format=url') is used to get the URL of the image and the_title_attribute('echo=0') is used for outputting alternative text.
