Featured Image Widget

Use this plugin to display the featured image for any post or page in your sidebar. When a featured image hasn’t explicitly been set you have the option to use an image that was uploaded with the post/page. If that fails the plugin can use a random image.

Download

The Featured Image Widget can be downloaded from the WordPress plugin repository or from WordPress’ built in plugin installer by searching for Featured Image Widget.

  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
