I have settings > media set up at 260×160 (thumbnail) and zero’d out the medium and large as advised in the video:
Under Theme options – basic settings – we have blog sidebar / archive sidebar / author sidebar all set on right column.
Intro image is set on small
Portfolio on 3 (although I don’t think we use this for anything)
Page width boxed (980)
I changed the content.php with the child theme (though not convinced it worked as I also changed it on the parent content.php to get it to work) so that the featured image now shows in the actual post and not just on the blog page.
I also have a site with preference, and when I upload an image it is automatically autosized to the settings > media size set, but on the encounters, when i upload an image of any size, it remains at it’s original size, so we have a big image on both the blog page and also the blog post.
I’m assuming it should work in that on the blog page the image would be thumbnailed, and a click through to the post would be the original image size.
I’m also needing to get the ‘continue reading’ / ‘read more’ to work, it seems to be in the content.php but during a long post it doesn’t cut off.
So in a nutshell, we’d like;
Small blog page image (as in your demo)
Continue reading after so many characters
original sized image in actual blog post
