Well, I did it. I located the following in functions.php
add_theme_support( ‘post-thumbnails’ );
set_post_thumbnail_size( 450, 450, true );
I have left the first line to continue enabling setting featured images in posts. However, I deleted set_post_thumbnail_size, meaning that the same proportions are retained for the thumbnails and for the post image. Yay!
Just to add to the post earlier (that’s still awaiting moderation at this point), I have found now that the thumbnail being created for the page listing posts is 450px x 450px . This is not specified anywhere (not in the media settings section at all…)
I think I’ve now tried everything I can possibly think of… slightly beginning to lose the will to live :). Let’s see what we can come up with…
Thank you for such a quick response. I made sure that the update to the recent version was done and just tried the same…
Unfortunately, the same thing persists. Below are links to four screenshots.
I did just check these work when not logged out into the site as an admin.
If this does not work you could also see them in one of my OneDrive folders, which I am sharing below:
Screen 3 shows what my old thumbnails looked like and what the new one (the first one on there) looks like – I can’t see to be able to control for its dimensions.
Screen 2 shows what the actual media I upload looks like – i.e. it’s horizontal and you can see the precise dimensions there. Screen 4 shows what the featured image looks like on the post’s page (I am happy with that), but Screen 1 is where the problem starts: for whatever reason the horizontal dimensions original image now is cropped to something like 4:3.
Is there a way, by the way, to set a thumbnail image separately from featured image? I’d be quite happy to resize the file for a thumbnail on my PC and then just upload the file separately, but I can’t see that option anywhere.
Many thanks for your support.
