    Hi,

    Just trying this template and I like the look of it, but I have a large white space next to the top story on the front page. Any idea how I use this space?

    Thanks in anticipation

    Hi,

    Since posting last night I have realised that I need to add a 'featured image' but having done that I still have the large white space. Would like to know how to fix this.

    Unless you post a link to your site, no way for anyone to offer much help except to suggest that you use Firebug to look at the CSS code that is creating that space and modify it in a Child Theme or custom CSS option or plug-in.

    Sorry, that was dumb. Here is the link.

    It's the space to the right of the top story. There is a 'featured image' selected (and they show for all the other stories) but just won't show in that spot.

    Looks like the code is missing a closing tag for the anchor tag - just before the image tag:

    <a class="attachment-home-featured wp-post-image" alt="Media Helping Media on Posterous" src="http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Unpost200.jpg" height="119" 200"="" title="Click to read: "Goodbye Posterous I am moving to WordPress" <img width=" href="http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/blog/goodbye-posterous-i-am-moving-to-wordpress/">	</a>

    Thanks, appreciate that.

    Do you know which file I need to edit and what I need to add to fix that?

    Sorted the problem out. The team at http://webdevstudios.com/ spotted the problem and sent me the solution. It was a bit of code that needed to be fixed in the home.php script. Looks great now. http://www.mediahelpingmedia.org/blog/. Big thanks to Brad and Jess at webdev Studios.

    Here is the code that needed to change...

    In home.php on line 22:
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="Click to read: &quot;<?php the_title(); ?>&quot;">

    try changing to this:
    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="Click to read: <?php the_title(); ?>">

    The &quot; are messing up the link. That should fix the issue
