I think my issue is very similar to that at https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/wrong-feature-images-appears-on-homepage-of-bp-daily.
Essentially, rather than grabbing the first image in of the post's image order for the slideshow image, it seems to be grabbing the last image uploaded to the post. My site is at http://www.northings.com.
I'd like to change the way BP Daily works so that, both for the Slideshow and for the front page columns, it grabs the Featured Image of the post. That way I have much more control over what is displayed on the front page.
Can you let me know the code changes I need to make to the Slideshow and Front Page Column PHP files to make to grab the Featured Image instead?
