Enable Featured Image Support in Theme:

Some old themes do not support featured image and you have to add the functionality using the function.php located in your theme main folder.
  • Login to your Dashboard then go to Appearance.
  • Click on Editor and on the right sidebar click on functions.php file.
  • At the end of the file place this code.
if ( function_exists( 'add_theme_support' ) )
add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
