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.
