Assigning Images for each "Sliding Door"

This is basic, but after reading the FAQs and other topics in the forum, I was still a little unsure as to how to simply upload and assign images for one of the 'doors' on my "Menu". I have created a menu with 7 items, some of which are custom links, some of which are pages or categories. I went to a post in the Main Menu and uploaded 320x200 images and clicked "Use as featured image". My menu still does not have any pictures.

What am I doing wrong (using 2.6.1)?

Sounds good.
Maybe wait a few hours, it might be a cache issue on your web server.

And just to clarify, this is to replace the image that appears when you create a page like home, about us, etc,etc

I'm having a similar problem. The images for sliding doors for 6 of the links are created and loaded via 'Featured Image' successfully. I've run into a problem though - I can't find a way to assign an image to a custom link OR have that link open in a new window. If there is a way to do this I'd really appreciate learning how.

FAQ question 4...


How do I link to a category in the sliding doors and select an image for that category?


To link to category or outside pages you need to install the plugin called "pages Links to". This adds the "page links to" box at the bottom of each page in the admin side of wordpress, where you can enter any URL that you want the slider to point to.

1. Install the 'page links to' plugin.

2. Use the 'page links to' plugin to point this page to the category you want. Edit each page seperately. Give them a link to a category or URL and a featured image!
