Imagen destacada de Wordpress como fondo

I am trying to echo out the featured image of a post as a background image. I have seen a few places this should be possible but i cant seem to make it work for my self.

//Here i get the image as a thumbnail 
 if ( has_post_thumbnail()) {
   $image = the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail');
     // Here i try to get it as a background image and nothing 
<div style="width:405px;height:277px;background-image:url('<?php echo $image; ?>');">
    <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/foreground.png"/>

But if i use this i can echo out the thumbnail

<?php echo '<img src="' . $image . '"/>'; ?>

I feel like i am missing something small and stupid but what is it?

It looks like your trying to make the image the background of a div? Use this for the page background... body{ background-image:url('<?php echo $image; ?>');} -

Yeah i am trying to make the featured image of a div not the body -

Check this code and let me know if that works for you --

<?php if ( has_post_thumbnail() ): ?>
    $image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $post->ID ), 'thumbnail'); 

<div style="width:405px;height:277px;background-image:url('<?php echo $image[0]; ?>');">
    <img src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/images/foreground.png"/>

<?php endif; ?>

Thank you very much! Works perfectly - Travis

Si quieres usar post thumbnail as a background image then you can't use this function, because it prints an img element with the thumbnail image, instead you can use wp_get_attachment_url

$url = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID) );

Then use this image as a background like

<div style="background:url('<?php echo $url; ?>');"></div>

This is inside the loop and if you want to use it outside of the loop then you have to pass the post ID.

This is still pulling the full size image. I appreciate the response though. - Travis

@Travis, You didn't mentioned about the size and I thought just want to original size, anyways, You got the answer. - El alfa
