How can I have a full-size uncropped thumbnail in a single post view?


Question

Posted · Report post

Hello

When editing a single post, I seem to only have some options for the post thumbnail, and I have to choose between a cropped full-size image or a tiny image.

How can I have an uncropped fullsize image as the post thumbnail in a single post view?

Thank you!

Unfortunately its local, but here are the screenshots:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/vch6b8ila2eei4h/Screenshot%202014-03-27%2019.57.41.png How about now?

So the problem is that when I view a single post and there is the Featured Image for the single post, the Featured image for it is cropped so it is not the full height original version of the photo, but it is cropped vertically so it's displaying the 'landscape-thumb' version. I don't know how else to explain it.

When users read on a single blog post, I want it to show the full, uncropped image.

I managed to do this with a solution I'm not very happy with, but editing the line 177 of the postloop section.php. I replaced the 'landscape-thumb' with 'large'

How can I do this without coding? I for example will probably never want to have automatically cropped images for my posts in any project.
There is the setting "Select Thumb Size (  Global Option ) "  but it does not affect single posts, it probably just affects the main loop with multiple blog posts?

Thanks!

Hi there in the postloop for the single post page you can change the image size from the drop down - http://screencast.com/t/HrjEMgMHio4l the global option means that this will take affect on all single post pages.
