    Hey Daniel,

    Welcome to the Community!

    You mean the option to set the featured image on a post or page?

    If so, This is a feature of the theme actually, does the theme show the featured image box on other sites? It wouldn't normally.

    Here is what you do to add the featured image capability to the theme. In the functions.php of the active theme, add:

    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    see this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails

    That was it? please advise.
