  • All featured images that appear on the home page for each new post always default to 250 x 250.
    I want to make some of them 250 tall by 750 wide.
    Please advice and thank you.
    I am a newbie.

  • Just to clarify the question:
    Even if I select an image that is 250 x 750 as the featured image for any Post, it will always default to the 250 x 250.
    I need to override the themes settings for the home page and I cannot find how to do so.
    Thank you for your assistance!

    This question is still unresolved.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you!

    All I want is to make selected featured posts showing on the home page to be 250t x 750w

    Hello,
    there is a setting in the functions.php file….
    it should be something like add_image_size(250,250)
    Try changing it to add_image_size(250,750) and apply the “Regenerate Thumbnail” plugin…
    See if it does the job…

    Here is the text I found as suggested:
    add_image_size(‘homepage-thumb’,330,270,true);

    I changed the image size but it had no effect.

    I tried doing the same in the content-home.php file as well as the home.php, content.php and the main index template with no effect.

    Maybe I need to regenerate the thumbnails after changing the settings?

    Anyways, even if this did work, won’t it change the size of ALL of the featured images on the home page? I want to select the size of selected images, not do a global change.
