I have a site where the default theme has kind of a slider instead of a featured image option. In that slider, I add images from the site media library.
But whenever I create such image gallery, the featured image for the article is also automatically added to that image gallery/slider as the first image. And I don’t want it to be added.
Is there a way to exclude it but still be able to use the featured image as it is needed for other parts of the site?
I asked the theme support but they say it is not possible due to how WordPress works.
