Increase feature image size in main blog.

Recommended Posts

Hi and thanks in advance... I am kinda new to this. I am trying to increase the size of my thumbnail image in the main part of my blog so it would fit accross my entire column (533px). I saw in another discussion you can do it in post_thumbnail array, changing it from 40px to whatever your required size - but this didn't seem to work. Is there a easier way, what would I be doing wrong? My blog: http://www.mysquarefryingpan.com/ Discussion thread: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/8987/change-thumbnail-size-from-categories-pages/p1 Steps I did: -Downloaded template.postloop.php and altered post_thumbnail array line to 533px -Uploaded back to folder and platformbase folder. - I noticed my platformbase folder was hidden and took my several goes to upload Thanks again!

Hi, just an update - still not working after several goofy attempts. Steps I have taken - I have replaced the platformbase folder and tried several methods to update the code: [img]http://www.mysquarefryingpan.com/images/Screen%20Shot%202012-02-26%20at%208.36.15%20PM.png[/img] Also I changed the thumbnail size under settings>media to my desired size, which works great except it throws all my text on the right side bar: [img]http://www.mysquarefryingpan.com/images/Screen%20Shot%202012-02-26%20at%209.54.11%20PM.png[/img] I'm missing something! Thanks M

Hi M, Because these are thumbnails, you need to change the dimensions in Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Settings > Media > Thumbnail size

Please search our forums, before posting!

Thanks Danny for your reply! I tried that, and it worked but it throws all my text to the other side of the screen - see screenshot 2 above your post. Maybe I should research on why my text is over that side now. Thans again m

M, You're going to need to do some serious customization in that size range. The image is normally templated to appear left of the excerpt and title in PlatformPro. By making the image 533px wide, all the information is pushed right of the image, which is still in its normal place. If you're not familiar with this, you'll need to engage one of our Pros (http://www.pagelines.com/pros) to customize the proper solution for this considerable restyling. I'd suggest in the meantime, you should [url="http://www.getfirebug.com"]Get Firebug[/url] for Firefox, using that as a tool to identify the various selectors. You might be able to make some changes with that but I believe this is going to need more help than we might be able to provide in the forum.
