How to use cover for image on bootstrap blog skin?

Hey DevTeam,

i am using boostrag blog skin. It works great. But the function to show an image as cover does not work. In this case no image is shown (so it makes no sense to add a screenshot). Teaser works great; but it would be very nice to get it running as cover.
Is there a work around?

Thanks in Advance and Regrads, Will

PS: Inline images as thumbnails shows in bootstrap skin no padding. Is there an easy way for me to handle this? I would appreciate an option which helps avoiding text flattering around when using thumbnail large. (in mobile view that flattering text is uncomely).

Hi @saunders, in addition to the explained here: http://b2evolution.net/man/image-attachment-positions. Cover images are also used as the background image for post of the type Main-Intro. This feature is working properly in the Bootstrap Blog skin (see the screenshot below).

Also, Cover images are not included as attachments on the disp=single view, unless the skin specifically overrides this behaviour.

Regarding the PS (and in general), please explain us a bit better what are you trying to do. Screenshots are always appreciated, they help us to get a faster and better understanding of your needs.

Thank you.

@mgsolipa thanks for your answer.

You wrote: "Cover images are not included as attachments on the disp=single view, unless the skin specifically overrides this behaviour." This points to my question.

In Bricks Skin that works pretty fine. But with Bottstrap blog skin not. So I ask for a fix, to use cover in attachment for disp-single with bootstrap blog skin.

Following I'll attach three screenshots. Two of them show bootstrap blog skin with attachment set to teaser (working), the other to cover (not working). The third screeshot shows disp=single with atteachment cover (working)
