Hi, Is it possible when using the Magazing layout to have the post thumb the full width of the area and the title of the post underneath the image? Like so: znknrm.jpg Thanks Danny

Hi Danny, You would have to modify the width of the thumbnails (Settings->Media), and then perhaps also the CSS. If you have a link to your site, we can help you out more easily.

Are you familiar enough with CSS (and possibly Firebug) for us to explain what you could possibly do?

I am wondering exactly the same thing. I have managed to move the thumbs to the top of the box in the CSS, and adjust the padding. But I can't work out how to make the thumbs bigger. I should imagine I should not size them in NextGen Gallery because I actually need bigger thumbs for the 2 top posts. So I need to different sized thumbs. Here is the site if you need to take a look.

Hey Ben, If you need two different sized thumbs, then the easiest thing to do would be to set the thumbnail size (in Settings->Media for WP, or in Settings->Thumbnails for NextGen) to the size of the larger thumbnail. Then you can resize the images with CSS for the smaller ones.

Thats Kate, thats great. I can't find which CSS file the values reside in though. Can't find it in the main 'styles.css'. Any ideas? Cheers Ben

Just dawned on me. Would it need to be a custom CSS rule?

Yes you can apply your own there. Look at the Chrome Developer TOolbar or FireBug add-on for FireFox to help you pinpoint the selectors.
