How to center featured images on Genesis themes + other useful tips

The following code will enable you to display featured images directly after post titles.

To get started, all you need to do is copy/paste the following code to your child theme’s function file (functions.php). You will also need to install a custom CSS plugin if you are uncomfortable playing around with your theme’s stylesheet.

Add and Center Featured Post Images

Open your theme’s functions.php file and paste the code below:

//* Add featured Image

add_action( 'genesis_entry_header', 'single_post_featured_image', 15 );

function single_post_featured_image() {
    
    if ( ! is_singular( 'post' ) )
        return;
    
    $img = genesis_get_image( array( 'format' => 'html', 'size' => genesis_get_option( 'image_size' ), 'attr' => array( 'class' => 'entry-image' ) ) );
    printf( '<div class="featuredimg"><a href="%s" title="%s">%s</a></div>', get_permalink(), the_title_attribute( 'echo=0' ), $img );
    
}

Then add this to your CSS file or custom CSS plugin:

/* Center Featured Images Genesis */
.featuredimg { text-align:center; margin-bottom: 14px;}

Override Body Classes – Remove classes from body_class

//* Add body class
 add_filter('body_class', 'my_body_class', 10, 2);
function my_body_class($wp_classes, $extra_classes)
 {
// List of the only WP generated classes allowed
 $whitelist = array('custom-body-class-1', 'custom-body-class-2', 'blog-body-class-1');
// Filter the body classes
 $wp_classes = array_intersect($wp_classes, $whitelist);
// Add the extra classes back untouched
 return array_merge($wp_classes, (array) $extra_classes);
 }
