Issue with post thumbnails

  • Anonymous


    First of all, I would like to thank you and congratulate you on amazing theme! I really love it!

    However, I do encounter a minor issue when attempting to create my new website. I was trying to find so many ways round it, but I’m not succesful so far.

    In my website, the home page is set to display post excerps. With each post there is a thumbnail that I choose to go with it. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the site I need different shapes of images to each post. As far as I can see, the thumbnail sizes are set and they never adjust proportionally to the size of the image – instead the thumbnails are cropped.

    There are 2 ways to solve my problem:

    1. Is there a way of hiding thumbnails completely? I would just enter the image as a part of the post and align it to the left. I would still need the post icons to exist, so that they appear in my widgets – I just want to hide thumbnails from post excerpts.

    Possible solution – go to setting->media->image size->set thumbnail size to 0 width and 0 height. Unfortunately this doesn’t work. Smallest amout I can enter is 1.

    Moreover, changing the height doesn’t seem to make any change!

    On the other hand, changing the value of ‘width’ from 1<anything only changes the size of the default square…

    2 if I want to keep the thumbnails

    a) how to either adjust the default shape or make the image appear with its own size within the thumbnail?

    As an example I would use this site . That’s exactly how I want this to work

    b) how to make the thumbnail appear in the actual post, not just the excerpt?

    Many thanks,

    Moved to Support. Please post in the correct section next time.

    You can just hide the automatic thumbnail using CSS:

    .excerpt-thumb {
    display: none;



    Thanks a million! Works well for me!

    That’s one of the solutions! I guess the other one – adjustable thumbnail size is a bit more of a hassle?

    You can easily change the size of the thumbnail, but it’ll be uniform for all posts. You can’t specify custom thumbnail size for individual posts, unless you do some custom coding in the template.
