Feature img as a bg for single WordPress entriesNovember 21, 2014
The following snippet when placed within a WordPress post loop will display a feature image uploaded via your media uploader and place it as a background image within a div tag.
Custom CSS will be required to display the image.
<?php if ( has_post_thumbnail( $post->ID ) ) : ?> <?php $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), 'single-post-thumbnail' );
$image = $image;
<div class="feat-img--bg" style="background-image: url('<?php echo $image; ?>')"></div> <?php endif; ?>
More information about post thumbnails can be found on the WordPress Codex.
