Inuit Featured Images Not Appearing - Was Working

  1. I use Inuit Type as well and my featured images on the home page stopped showing up just days ago. Anyone know if WordPress is fixing this common problem?

    Example: blog.kevinpipher.ca.

    The first four posts used to have featured images in them. If you drill into the posts the featured images show up, just not on the home page....

  2. They won't show because they're 594px wide and they need to be 600px wide (or more).

    This is what Staff have said:

    Hello all. First of all, apologies for the issues you are having. We have indeed made a change to the way cropped featured images work on WordPress.com.

    I'm not even going to question why is has been working this entire time at the image size I had set and now it doesn'

    Actually, that has been a long time standing bug with the way we processed images. This has been fixed now. Previously, images that were smaller than what a theme specifies as the size for a featured image would be upscaled and distorted. This should never happen by default.

    The side effect is that some of you may have grown used to this behavior. For that, I apologize.

    Images that are equal, or bigger than what a theme requires, should still work exactly as before, cropped when needed.

    We are checking your reports for possible misses, but, please, if you have a case where a featured image that is bigger than the dimensions a theme specifies is still showing problems, let us know. Thanks. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/problem-with-homepage-2?replies=20#post-724028

  3. @timethief and @panaghiotisadam Thank you so much!! Both of you have been so helpful!!

    I've read that post, and feedbacked as below -

    Can't agree more that this is maddening!
    I always have this thing to get the standardized formats, which of course include SIZES!!
    I'm a beginner here, so have started with everything clean and straight and ... According to the "Guidelines"!! Which part I'm not reading/ following right?!

    A freaky 594 width for 1 column... And now they are deciding overnight to do the "right thing". Ha.

    Should I be glad that I only have 14 posts so far? So only have to redo 14 images?!?

    By the way, Panos, thanks for looking into this.

  4. You're welcome from me.

  5. @timethief and @panaghiotisadam I second that - Thanks as well! I've gone back and resized all of my featured images to make up the extra 4 pixels and now they work. Frustrating that it all happened this way from WordPress but at least there's a solution :)

  6. @kpipher
    I'm glad to hear you have resized your featured images and they are displaying properly now. Best wishes with your blog. :)

    Thanks for the referral to check out another "The Morning After" blog. I always like to see how others are making use of a theme.

  9. how can i manage to resize it

    Here are links to free image editing software > http://en.support.wordpress.com/media/image-optimization/#image-editing-software

    For the Inuit Types theme the featured image dimensions are:
    One-column featured posts: width 600 pixels [*], maximum height 250 pixels.
    Two-column featured posts: width 278 pixels, maximum height 150 pixels.
    Regular posts: maximum 90×75 pixels.
    [*] Although 594 pixels will show up: the remaining 3+3 pixels are hidden. http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2011/10/21/on-the-recent-featured-image-issues/

    thanks a lot I also read something about it..

    "click the Media Library tab, locate image, click Show; then (in either case) click “Use as featured image”, wait till it saves, close box without clicking the “Insert into Post” tab if you don’t want the image on the complete post."

    it helped! Thanks a lot angels!

  11. You're welcome. :)

  12. I am also having a problem with innuit types but only on the one I have been trying to post today. All the old ones are still viewable.

  14. Is this still an issue, as I do see the December 7th post's featured image on your front page?

  15. No it just sorted itself out without any more input from me shortly after I wrote this. I thought it was something that you guys had done. Whatever magic was performed and by whom I don't know but I am grateful. :)

  16. objetsdevertu.wordpress.com is using Structure and the Featured Image isn't working, but was. Just adding my name to the list!
