Change Featured Image metabox text

This deregisters the original featured image metabox and replaces it with one that has a more appropriate title.  I’ve used this for custom post types where a “featured image” doesn’t make much sense, such as a slider.

Just update Custom Image in line 5.  That’s it!

Uses built-in WordPress hooks.  Works well with other plugins that modify the output in the postimagediv.

Add to functions.php or plugin.

Dave Winter focuses in WordPress UI Design and WordPress Plugin Development (some have labelled him a fanatic) but has hands in many other projects, including photography and music. He's never far from a computer... or an iPad (for testing purposes, of course). If you've been to a WordCamp in Southern California, he probably already knows who you are (or maybe not - he's terrible with names). Dave currently teaches courses at California State University, Long Beach alongside his small business at (and his students think he's pretty boss).
