The lightweight WordPress plugin namely “Hide featured image on all single post/page” hides featured images/thumbnails in pages and posts. These are usually found in the list of posts. Plus, you’ll get rid of clutter images you don’t need in our post. Thumbnail / featured Images will disable the image only when the page is open.

You do not need to change any settings after installing this plugin. This will automatically hide the petrified image on open posts or pages.

The installation will automatically apply to any page/post you add later along with the current posts. If this installation negatively affects the post or page you will need to edit the posts or pages (if you want the featured image/thumbnail to be displayed on the post or page you need to add it to the content).

If you have a lot of old content on your blog or website, you may want to use a different plugin, such as Displaying a Conditional Featured Image, which by default only features new posts as featured images.

If this theme does not work for your theme, please let the developer know.

You don’t need to use both plugins. Only one can be used depending on the need. One plugin gives the option to manually hide each featured image as described above. The second plugin automatically hides featured images in all posts immediately after installation. It means that although the work of both is the same, there are differences in their option to hide the thumbnail.
