Today, here’s a snippet that gives you the ability to extract the source of the post thumbnail image. It is super useful if you need the post thumbnail url to use in your code.

Simply paste the following code on your theme file, within the loop.

$image_id = get_post_thumbnail_id();
$image_url = wp_get_attachment_image_src($image_id);
$image_url = $image_url[0];
