display featured image twice

WordPress 2 posts 2 voices

  1. when the featured image is downloaded in single.php, is there a way to ‘reuse’ (not download twice) the image and re-display it elsewhere in the post (in the header)as well as its normal position at top of post

  2. Whatever code you have is simply going to reference the resource (i.e., the image).

    I assume by “download” you mean to not have 2 HTTP requests. I imagine that would be more a function of the browser than anything you can do on your end.

    So, the best thing to do is to simply use whatever function you’re using to get the image in both places.
