    The featured images seem to be fixed to a certain size, and so they’re chopping the tops and bottoms off of the existing featured images. Any way to avoid this?

    In any case, what size should featured images be going forward, so that they fit in the container size you’ve given them?

    Thanks for using Author!

    Featured Images are always displayed at a 2×1 ratio, so any images you upload that fit the 2×1 ratio will not be cropped, at any screen size.

    If you’d like to change that ratio, you can add the following CSS:

    .featured-image {
      padding-bottom: 50%;

    Increase the 50% percent value to make the images taller, or decrease it to make them shorter.

    You can copy and paste that code into the “Custom CSS” section in the Customizer (Appearance > Customize). Once added there, it should take affect right away.

    That’s great! Thank you for the help.

    The theme looks really good, and my PageSpeed score jumped from 10 to 90, so well-done on your end with the coding!
