While Connections Reloaded 3.0.2 perfectly supports WordPress 2.9, the new version of WordPress introduced the feature of Posts Thumbnails.
For some strange reason, your theme needs to have the necessary code to “enable” this feature.
So, I decided to put together a version of Connections Reloaded that adds supports for the new post thumbnail features of WordPress.
If you’re using this theme, you’ll notice a new section in your New Post screen that allows you to designate an image as a post thumbnail.
By default, the posts do not display the post thumbnails, since each display requires two database queries. You can turn this on by visiting the Connections Reloaded settings page.
If you are running this theme on your blog, do consider a donation.
