featured image/slider automatically cropped

  • On a development site, I have successfully uploaded a single featured image sized 944 × 450 on a post categorized as “featured” for the custom home page and it looks fine, the entire image appears. However, when I replicate this on the production site, the image is automatically cropped to 940 x 198. I’m stymied. Any ideas why this is happening?

    Hello, could you please provide a link so I can take a look?

    Thanks for your response. A friend ended up helping me with fixes/workarounds on this, and the site is now okay, but here were the problems.

    1. Re auto-cropping, here is what she said:

    There’s a function called “the_post_thumbnail” that pulls a thumbnail based on what it thinks is the best fit. Since the twentyten theme has already obligingly generated a 940×198 image, it picks that. You can explicitly tell the function what image you want it to pick, though–it’s in header.php. I made the following change (line 77):




    2. The second problem had to do with the three featured text boxes. On the production site, the Featured Text fields would not accept HTML. I had to include all my text for these areas in the Featured Header Text fields.

    As I said before, the development site had no problems with this, and had also moved from the Twenty-Ten theme to Adamos. WP, the theme and all plugins were up-to-date on both. However, the development site had fewer previous themes than the production site, so maybe that had something to do with it.

    Thanks again for your quick response!
