Themes and FPW Category Thumbnails

Featured Image

What should I do if my theme does not support post thumbnails? Can your plugin still be used? Can FPW Category Thumbnails plugin display thumbnails?

I've been asked these question so often that I felt it deserves some action. There are numerous good free themes not providing post thumbnails support at all. Should we stop using them? Not at all. There are solutions to this problem, unfortunately all of them require modifications of the theme files. Then there is FPW Post Thumbnails plugin. It is the cleanest and the least obtrusive standalone help. Its functionality will be included in the next version of FPW Category Thumbnails as well. You can find it in WordPress repository.
