Video: Add featured images to your Jekyll posts (Part 1)

As I started building my blog, I realized it would be really nice to have a featured image that appears above my blog posts. The image gets a reader’s attention and sets the tone for the content they will read. In this 2-part video series, I show you how to do that using the standard minima site Jekyll ships with. You can take these ideas and concepts and add them to your site.

If you enjoy this video, please subscribe to my channel, like, and comment. Those few actions will help me build an audience and create more content.

Feel free to clone the repo and use the code freely:

GitHub logo BillRaymond / jekyll-featured-images

Sample Jekyll site that shows how to implement featured images on posts and post feeds.

The repo has GitHub Pages installed, so you can try it out live here.

I am an occasional developer, so if you have any insights on how to improve, please feel free to offer your constructive comments. On my actual website, you will see I created a shared component that can be reused throughout the site. If you are interested in learning how to do that, let me know in the comments.
