Featured image size (5 posts)

    When I add an image to a post as 'featured image' it doesn't matter what size I select it always uses the full, original size. I wan to use the thumbnail size for use in the sidebar but it kust won't do it.

    Is this as it's meant to be or am I missing something?

    I don't have a problem using thumbnails as such as I am using twentyten. It's that when using 'Set featured image' in apost, it offers various sizes including thumbnail BUT if you select 'use as featured image' it ignores that setting and just uses the full size instead.

    Post_thumbnails are featured images.

    If you read through that article thoroughly, it describes how to add custom sizes and call them using the_post_thumbnail(); (Featured images are called using this function)

    I am having a similar issue. See: Featured Image Size and Cropping Elimination

    I have read through post upon post about this, both issues and codex's. Still have yet to find a concrete solution.

    I have added the set_post_thumbnail_size and configured the Media settings.

    <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail( $post_id, $size, $attr ); ?>

    Where does this go? single.php? I see nothing much that resembles it in the code...

    Isn't this featured image a basic inherent functionality of WordPress? I even read somewhere that the medium thumb was the default. I am not a PHP code-monster and really need some help with this!
