WPElegance2Col is a free 2-column theme, with premium features. Like any of my other themes, WPElegance2Col is a neat, professional, elegant theme and highly customizable.. The Footers, Featured Posts section and Thumbnails can be easily disabled or enable through the Theme Options Page.
Thumbnails in Home and other archive pages are created using the first image uploaded for a post. Hence, make sure that you first upload the appropriate image for every post. But don’t worry, in case you uploaded the wrong image first.Simply delete all the uploaded images for a post and upload them in the right order.
There are also options to specify the URLs of thumbnail and Featured Image hosted on any other external platform or service, for every post, through a widget in wordpress Add New Post Panel (See picture below).
