Thumbnail Sizes (2 posts)

    I have setup a wordpress blog using a theme which supports featured image.

    When the posts are listed the thumbnail is the correct size. Nevertheless when I go to view the posts as a single post the thumbnail stays small - but I want it to display the full width of the post - how would I do this?

    I had a look at function.php and made a new add image size:

    add_image_size( 'single_post', 640, 200, true );

    And I changed get the post thumbnail in single.php to:

    $image_url = get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID, 'single_post', array('class' => 'postThumb', 'title' => the_title_attribute('echo=0')));

    But its still not making the thumbnail go full width when viewing a single post.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction?


  2. Thumbnails are generated at the time the image is uploaded - so the images you already had in place wouldn't have been resized for your new image size. The Regenerate Thumbnails plugin will take care of this for you.
