[resolved] Sidebar image vertically stretched on some pages only (6 posts)

    I have inserted an image into the sidebar of my blog using the Jetpack image widget.

    On the front page of my new blog, the sidebar image appears normal.

    When you click down into one of the blog entries, the sidebar image is stretched vertically.

    This is happening on both Safari and Firefox. I am using WordPress 3.1 and Jetpack 2.1.1.

    Thanks for your help.

    lol I see...

    In Jetpack's Custom CSS section of the dashboard (Appearance → Edit CSS), add this;

    .widget img {
     height: 100%;

    Awesome, that worked. Thanks so much for the help and quick response.

    One thing I noticed is that this change did not propagate to each post of the blog until I edited the entry and updated it. I've noticed the same thing when I make changes to the widgets on a page. Simply hitting refresh on the browser doesn't seem to work.

    This wasn't a big deal since I currently have only three posts, but is there a trick to getting this to work in the future? Do I actually need to clear the cache and not just refresh my browser? I can't tell if this was a fact about the site or about my browser specifically.

    Thanks again.

    Do you have caching enabled on your site? And yes, you may need to clear browser caches as well.

    I think it may have been a caching issue. Sometimes browsers cache CSS.

    If you want to see instantaneous changes, try clearing your browser cache.
