'Latest Post' image not showing correctly after 3.5 upgrade (6 posts)

    Since upgrading to 3.5 and posting any new posts, the thumbnail image (featured image) does not display at the correct size (470px wide) on the 'latest post' on the Morning After theme.

    Previously, any latest post image defaulted to this size without having to set it or interfere. Now it seems to have defaulted to the 65px size of the 'older/featured/ posts. If i revert to an old post, it shows fine, it's just when adding any new posts after 3.5 has been installed.

    I havent changed any other settings apart from upgrading to 3.5.


    I'm not savvy in backend stuff so hopefully it's a simple fix someone can advise on!

    Yes, as much as i can understand it - i cant see any existing issues on this, nor any issues with this specific theme.

    Have you attempted these troubleshooting steps as recommended in the link I provided above? for example:

    ■flushing any caching plugins you might be running, as well as server and/or browser caches.
    ■deactivating all plugins (yes, all) to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin (read http://bit.ly/UhpkLl if you need help). Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems. Also remember to deactivate any plugins in the mu-plugins folder. The easiest way is to rename that folder to mu-plugins-old (read http://bit.ly/WMrMM5 for more information on mu-plugins)
    ■switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems. If you can't log in to change themes, you can remove the theme folders via FTP so the only one is twentyeleven. That will force your site to use it.
    ■manually upgrading. When all else fails, download a fresh copy of the latest.zip file of 3.5 (top right on this page) to your computer, and use that to copy up. You may need to delete the wp-admin and wp-includes folders on your server. Read the Manual Update directions first: http://bit.ly/RbU5qG

    directions are here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Updating_WordPress#Manual_Update

    if you decide, make sure you backup everything (including your database) before doing any actions, just in case.
