I've spent over an hour reading faqs, reading this forum, and tinkering with the settings.
The problems seems to be that YARPP is simply not accessing my thumbnails. My theme has thumbnails enabled, and they work well in my archives. I use "Site Layout Customizer" to generate a front page, and it accesses my thumbnails fine.
Somehow, though, YARPP isn't able to access my thumbnails, and so is just putting a shrunken version of the entire featured image in its place. This is slowing down my site quite a bit, since my site has a lot of art on it, and those files are huge.
If i put the yarpp-template-thumbnail.php display option up, I don't get thumbnails at all. I simply get full-sized pictures! It should be accessing my thumbnails, and has "the_post_thumbnail();" written right into the code, but it is accessing the whole image instead.
Would you please explain how I can get YARPP to access my thumbnails? I don't want to have to generate an entirely new set of thumbnails, just have it access the ones I already have. I'm going to have to turn off the thumbnails if this can't be fixed.
Thank you again for the plugin. I wouldn't be raising this if I didn't want to use it.
