Modify the Featured Image CSS Classes in Genesis

Genesis has a useful filter for modifying the attributes of almost any element it outputs. For instance, the featured image on archive pages has an attribute name of ‘entry-image’, so can be modified using the filter genesis_attr_entry-image.

The code below allows you to add a custom CSS class to the featured image using this filter.

function be_genesis_featured_image_classes( $attr ) {
$attr['class'] .= ' custom-class';
return $attr;
add_filter( 'genesis_attr_entry-image', 'be_genesis_featured_image_classes' );
