  • Resolved afrikablam


    Hi, I’m working on a site and I’m trying to edit the blog page (renamed the Events page) – the default image for the blog post summaries is Portrait: how can I edit those thumbnails? I’ve already edited the thumbnails for each of the images individually, regenerated the thumbnails, and set the “Blog Post Defaults Standard” to “Portrait” in Theme Options.

    Is there a way to change the thumbnails for blog post summaries?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You can set the default summary for blog posts in Theme Options > Blog Settings > Standard Blog Post Summary Default.
    Hope that helps!

    Hi Hannah, I’ve done that.

    I just double-check the image thumbnails in “MEDIA” to make sure they are correct, and they are.
    My settings are as follows:
    Standard Blog Post Summary Default > PORTRAIT
    Image Blog Post Summary Default > PORTRAIT

    I DO want a portrait image (the landscape options uses the full size of the image, which is way too big), but the portrait image automatically shows the center of the image, which I don’t want. For example, the second post “Freaky Friday Halloween Party,” I set the thumbnail to show the left side of the photo, but the portrait image automatically uses the center, so half the words show and half the pumpkin image shows.

    Is there a way to edit which part of the photo shows up in the portrait image on the blog page?

    Hey Hannah, I actually decided to use a plugin to display my recent posts so that I don’t have to worry about the thumbnail size.

    thanks for your help!
