How to set the Featured Image in WordPress

To set a featured image, while editing a page click the “set featured image” link, or if one is existing click the remove link and then click the “set featured image” link. Next you can choose one of the tabs on the window that pops up. If you want to upload an image just drag the image to the window or click on “select file” and choose the image you want. You can also select an image from the media library by clicking on that tab, or if images have already been attached to that post a “gallery” tab will show up. After you upload the image, or if you go to the media library, you can click on the image name to show more details about it. Then, near the bottom there will be a “use as featured image” link.

phpmyadmin: Drag And Drop File Upload

I use phpMyAdmin to manage mySql databases quite often and I find myself uploading / importing SQL files. I’ve gotten a little spoiled with WordPress’ HTML5 drag and drop ajax style uploader. Every time I go to use phpMyAdmin I start wishing that it had a HTML5 style drag-and-drop file uploader, something like this: I think it would be fairly easy to write a plugin and implement this idea but I have not done it yet. Leave a comment if the lack of a drag and drop HTML5 file uploader for phpMyadmin bugs you too.
