Can I use a specific image for a category?

As you already know, you can fash­ion­ably dis­play the cat­e­gories by using the Pix­el­grade: Cat­e­gories Images wid­get from Appear­ance → Wid­gets. The image of the cat­e­go­ry will be rep­re­sent­ed by the first post’s image.

How­ev­er, you can have a ded­i­cat­ed image for a cer­tain cat­e­go­ry by fol­low­ing these sim­ple steps:

  1. From your Word­Press Dash­board, go to Plu­g­ins → Add new plu­g­in.
  2. Search for the Cat­e­go­ry Icon plu­g­in, install and acti­vate it.
  3. Next, go to Posts→ Cat­e­gories and hit the Edit but­ton on the cat­e­go­ry you’re after.
  4. Select the Image field and assign the desired image and you are ready to go.

This article applies to Julia, and Felt as they share the same underlying structure.
