Add or Change Content in the Featured Image Meta Box

Perhaps you need to provide a little extra instruction about the Featured Image meta box. It doesn’t take much to add your own text to that box:

add_filter( 'admin_post_thumbnail_html', 'add_featured_image_instruction');
function add_featured_image_instruction( $content ) {
    return $content .= '<p>The Featured Image is an image that is chosen as the representative image for Posts or Pages. Click the link above to add or change the image for this post. </p>';
