Tested using the Authority Pro child theme by StudioPress.
There’s 1 – 2 steps :
- # Upload the file named featured-images.php to the Authority Pro themes lib folder overriding the default file of the same name.
- # Add your single post image on the Edit Post screen using custom fields native to WordPress or ACF. See instructions below under the Add Image sub heading.
Create a custom field named single_image and add the link for your image to the value field like this :
If you want to use ACF to add your image, import the file named 72894-acf.json using the ACF plugins > Custom Fields > Tools > Import field.
You’ll also need to remove or comment out the code on line 29 of image-functions.php and uncomment the code on line 41. This option allows you to use the Customize > Theme Settings > Content Archive > Featured Image Size settings to select the single-featured-image size like you see in this screenshot :
