Yes. simple_mama suggested that early on... I still have that plugin installed and run it each time I try something new. But right now I pretty much delete all of my images and start over with every test. I've created 'sample' images 250px x 250px so I know they are exactly that size....but with every test or tweek of the code...they still appear on the blog page as 150px x 150px.

What time zone are you located in? We might have to do a screen sharing session to resolve this. The process takes up to 30 minutes. Let me know a few times when you might be available and what time zone, so we can coordinate a mutually convenient session.

Tomorrow (day) is kinda bad, but I think I might be able to correct this myself. Catrina was correct with the (width: 25%;) thing. I was messing around in FireBug and when I got to the element style, I deleted the 25% and it appeared correctly. Now, the trick is...how to I code that...or get that to stick!?

The html/css with FireBug is:

element.style {
max-width: 250px;
width: 25%;
}


I want it to read:

element.style {
max-width: 250px;
}

I don't think you should be setting a max-width because if you have the settings correct at Dashboard > Settings > Media, WP should be creating a new thumbnail size of 250px x 250px. As pointed out this will normally affect only new posts. However, the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin should regenerate every one of them to the new default thumbnail size. It doesn't expand the old one, but takes the original file and makes a new image size. This issue shouldn't have ever needed any CSS. Let me know if you need more help with this.

Hmmmm....

I'm fine with removing the 'max-width' as well (I know it works if I remove the width percentage though)....but the point is...how do I change the element style? I changed the code with FireBug temporary to get it to look right while viewing it. Now I need to change it permanently...and I can't figure out how to make those revisions stick. My thumbnails are set to 250x250 and I've overused the Regenerate Thumbnail tool. I don't know where the max-width / width percentage data is coming from...

I don't think that a CSS like the following will work:

.element.syle {
max-width: 250px;
}

Good news! I just added:

.post-thumb {
width: 100% !important;
}


...and IT WORKED! ;-)

(thanks everyone on this one. frustrated me for a while.)
