    Hi

    We have been using your lovely template since Oct and have over 90 blogs. I upgraded to the latest version of Graphene this week and it has made a bit of a mess of my featured images… Someone called Kim has suggested that I need to resize all of my images to 75 by 75

    Not massively happy with this solution – can you come back to me with what’s happened, why the images had changed size and what I can do to fix? Many thanks

    Hi (itstrategylisa)

    Try WordPress settings:

    http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/options-media.php

    Where You can set thumbnail-size.

    sorry – a little confused – can you please clarify whether I am going to have to resize every featured image to 75?

    I am confused as to why the featured image size has changed! I used to be able to paste in what I wanted irrespective of size.

    I have no experience of customising WP and would prefer not to. It was working fine before I upgraded the template….

    Where do I find the options for thumbnail size in the administration screens?

    Thanks in advance,

    Lisa

    The only thing that’s changed related to the Featured Image for the theme is that the header image size is now 960px x 198px, instead of 900px x 198px previously. That means if you use any featured image that’s bigger than 960px x 198px in your posts, they will replace the header image when that post is viewed.

    Apart from that, nothing has changed in regard to the Featured image size in the slider. It is still the same, using WordPress’ default thumbnail size of 150px x 150px.

    I’m not very clear as to which featured image display you are referring to. But if you are referring to the featured image that is being displayed in the slider, nothing has changed there, and you don’t have to resize your images.

    Hi

    Thanks for coming back to me. Please see my home page http://www.iodyorkshire.co.uk. I have removed the featured image from the slider (graph) and re-added it. It should be 150*122, but as you can see it has made it very small in the slider, and square.

    Equally the second post (and all of the rest) have been resized. The second post (Social Entrepreneurs – who are they & how can you support them?) has a featured image in the slider of 150*56 but again it has been resized so the image is square and much smaller.

    I am sorry to nag but this has really affected the look of the site and I need help sorting.

    It was fine – ie. I could paste in whatever size and shape images I wanted until 1.2.

    This could be due to wordpress resizing those images to 50×50 size because one of the sides is smaller than the thumbnail size, which is 150×150. Try uploading an image that’s bigger than 150×150 and see if it displays correctly.

    Hi, thanks for coming back to me.

    Hi – it seems that if I add anything other than a perfect square it resizes it. I am thus having to upload images that are square, which is a little of a pain. Thoughts?

    Even if the size is greater than 150×150? E.g. something like 200×300 should be resized properly to 150×150 by WordPress upon upload.
