Featured Image

Use this option to enable or disable the featured image for news single page.

2

Use this option to set the height of the thumbnail images in the news single page.

Slug

News slug is the text that is displayed in the URL (e.g. www.domain.com/news-posts/morbi-et-diam-massa/). As shown in the example, it is set to ‘news-posts’ by default but you can change it to anything to suite your preference. However you should not have the same slug in any page or other post slug and if so, the pagination will return 404 error naturally due to the internal conflicts.
