A couple of months ago, I decided to add my blog to my blog reading list. This is a good way for me to make sure everything looks correct when I make a daily post.
Every time I made a blog post, I kept noticing that my thumbnail photo was not showing up. I researched and researched and researched the issue and I could not find an answer. All of the information that I found online was already correct for my blog or the changes created issues. Plus, it didn’t solve my problem.
After looking over and over again, I decided to play around with some of the settings, and BINGO!!! I found a solution.
So, if you use Blogger and can not get your thumbnail photo to appear and you have tried everything, then see if these things help:
1. Go to your Dashboard.
2. Click the “More Options” arrow & go to “Settings.”
3. Once you are on the “Settings” screen, click “Other” at the bottom left of the screen under “Settings.”
4. Once you are on the “Other” page, make sure two things are correct:
#1 – Make sure under “Site Feed: Allow Blog Feed” it says FULL!
#2 – Make sure under “Site Feed: Enable Title Links and Enclosure Links” it says YES!
The issue with my blog was step #2. I had “No” selected until “Enable Title Links and Enclosure Links.”
If you do these things, then you should be able to see your thumbnail photo on your blog reading list. After several weeks of researching my problem, these things finally made my thumbnail photo pop up.
Now, my reading list looks like this:
I hope this helps other blog authors that have been having the same problem.
