Featured Image Sizes Missing - 3.5 (17 posts)

    When inserting a "Featured Image", I am not able to select the image size anymore, it just allows the original size that was uploaded. Normally I would select the thumbnail size for my "Featured Image" ... but it no longer is giving me this option.

    Checking the codex, it still shows the process prior to 3.5:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails

    Do I know have to upload another image every time in the size that I want my "Featured Image", or is this a bug?

    Thanks!

  2. I couldn't do this in 3.4.2 either. I thought it was a bug then and so just found a work around.

    In my theme, whenever I want to add the thumbnail size or full size as a featured image, all I did was use:

    <?php the_post_thumbnail( 'thumbnail' );?>
    or
    <?php the_post_thumbnail( 'full' ); ?>

    That way the right size is displayed at all times.

    I'm pretty sure this is a bug or an oversight. In 3.4.2, I was able to select the Featured Image in the same way I would insert an image, including the ability to select size.

    I'll wait a bit to hear from the developers to see the status on this, but I may use your suggestion as well...thanks for that.

    I'm having the same issue as well. I can only insert an image at the size it was uploaded, and am not given a choice for sizes like small, medium, large, thumbnail, etc.

    Youcould find the option as

    In admin panel --->settings--->Media

    change the size of the images by manual...

    I have already checked media settings. None of the options in media settings appear in the drop down menu when uploading an image into a post.

    Its not about setting the default sizes, its about not being able to select the size when inserting a featured image :)

    Hopefully we'll get a response from the WP team to see what happened to this important feature.

    Any word if this will be addressed in the next release?

    Next release of what? The featured image option is still available in WordPress 3.5 but you have to use a theme that supports it.

    Thanks for your comment. The problem is not that the "Featured image" is not there, the concern is as posted originally:

    Checking the codex, it still shows the process prior to 3.5:

    Do I now have to upload another image every time in the size that I want my "Featured Image", or is this a bug?

    You have never been able to select an image size when using the Featured Image functionality in WordPress core. The size of image used is controlled by your theme and usually default to thumbnail.

    Correction: You have been able to select an image size when using the Featured Image functionality in WordPress core...I've been doing it for many versions.

    The featured image selection was the same process as inserting an image...including the option to select the size you wanted to use as the featured image.

    From the Codex:

    After clicking the "Set featured image" link follow the same steps as inserting images in Posts and Pages. But instead of the "Insert into Post" button use the "Use as featured image" link next to it, to set the Post Thumbnail.

    I'd like to hear from one of the developers to let us know if this feature was left out on purpose, or if it will be brought back in the next release.

    This is happening to me! All my featured images look blurry after 3.5 :(

    yup, I have the same issue here...

    After the latest update I still noticed that featured image size options are still missing. I guess its safe to assume, since there has been no feedback from the WP developers, that this will no longer be an option.

    Since this hasn't been addressed as of yet, does anyone know of a plugin that will add back this functionality?
