WooCommerce Featured Image Option Missing FIX. Some themes don’t include the Featured Images option for Page posts, which WooCommerce uses for its products.

1. If the Featured Image option is missing, check the Screen Options panel at the top of the product page editor to make sure the Featured Image option is missing, and not just hidden.

2. If the Featured Image option is not available in the Screen Options panel, then it needs to be added via the functions.php file.

    In my case(twenty fourteen theme) it was a conflict with one of the slider plugins that made the Featured Image option NOT show at all in the Screen Options

      Hi Zoltan,

      Your functions.php file will be in your Child Theme folder. Here’s the path to the functions.php file inside a Child Theme: root > wp-content > themes > Child Theme > functions.php.

      If you don’t know about Child Themes (all the cool kids are doing it), please read this WooThemes article: A Beginner’s Guide to Customizing a WordPress Site.
