  15. Hi. This is such a great article. I did this and it works well. But I stumbled into a problem where I had embedded a youtube video in a post. I did this, the thumbnail changed to the image that I pasted, but the slider image on the top of the blog homepage is still the video thumbnail, and not the image. How do I solve this. I hope you can help me. Thank you.
