Featured Image

    Hi (again) Kenneth,

    I know this has been done to death but, for some reason, none of the previously published solutions seems to be working. I’ve got my homepage panes all sorted, I’ve changed my default Thumbnail size to 200×200, and I’ve installed this into my child theme:

    .homepage_pane img {
    float: left;
    width: 200px;
    height: 200px;
    margin-right: 5px;
    margin-left: 0;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    border-radius: 30px 30px 30px 30px;

    I’ve even uploaded a customised image of the original photo specifically sized to 200×200. Yet, when I set the featured image it still goes stretchy and when I inspect it with FB, it tells me that the image size is 210×127. Check the image again in my media file and, yup, it’s definitely 200×200. I’ve also installed AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild and given that a whirl, but it didn’t change anything, and I tried to play around with Crop Thumbnail but that told me that the Hompage-Pane Image was 255×127 and ‘too small to crop’. I’m wondering why the default size is going to 255×127 when I’ve changed everything (I thought) I’m ‘sposed to change.

    Most appreciative of any help. Sorry to be a bother. Again……

    Hi again,

    I’ve gone through every Featured Image post in the forum, as well as every Thumbnail post. I’m think that I’ve tried every suggestion, one by one, but my images are still coming out funky. It seems that, somehow, my default image settings for the Homepage Pane featured images are 280×140 and no matter what alterations I make to the CSS, they are determined to stay that way.

    Does anyone know of anything else I could, perhaps, try, or what I am doing incorrectly? I know there has to be a simple solution to this but, for the life of me, I don’t know what it is.



    I’m still working on trying to fix this. I’ve given up on using Featured Images, and have just used the following to define thumbnails:

    .homepage-pane-83.homepage_pane img {
    height: 200px;

    .homepage_pane img {
    -moz-box-shadow: -2px 2px 5px #777;
    -webkit-box-shadow: -2px 2px 5px #999;
    box-shadow: -2px 2px 5px #999;
    float: left;
    border-radius: 25px 25px 25px 25px;
    max-width: 140px;
    height: 200px;
    margin-right: 8px;

    I’ve also changed my Thumbnail size to 140×210, and uploaded them again, but still no joy. And I’ve tried specifically defining the thumnail sizes for each post excerpt. Does anyone have any ideas? I’ve been working on this periodically for about a week and I’m at a complete loss….
