WordPress does not include functionality to assign featured images to categories, but this might be possible using plugins.If you like our creations, please rate them on WordPress.org.October 11th, 2017 at 11:59 #54774
Thank you for your answer. I indeed tried two plugins, ‘Category Featured Images – Extended’and ‘Categories Images’. In the admin area they work ok, but no category images are shown when I display a category page. Maybe the plugins are overruled by the Anima theme?

Since such functionality does not exist by default, it really depends on how those plugins achieve displaying the category’s featured image.
Don’t they come with some kind of instructions for what modifications are necessary?If you like our creations, please rate them on WordPress.org.October 16th, 2017 at 14:56 #54950
Hi Zed, thank you for your patience. 😉
The only install instructions that come with ‘Category Featured Images Extended’ for instance, are:
Install and activate the plugin
DE-ACTIVATE CATEGORY FEATURED IMAGES IF ACTIVATED
Go to “Posts/Categories”
Edit a category
Set the category featured image
Go to “Settings/Category Featured Images Extended” to set fallback options.
The instruction to deactivate featured images puzzles me, because activation of featured images is why I installed the plugin in the first place. And I can’t even find the place where to do this.
Of course I don’t expect you to give support on this particular plugin(s), but I’m wondering why they are not working with your Anima theme. I also had problems with adding custom fields plugins. Does a theme need some extra features for that?
And why does the plugin seems to work in the backend and not in the frontend?
