Vigilance theme media - Photos decreased in size

  1. Has anyone had problems with their media in the Vigilance theme. I chose this theme because the photos (when selecting large size) went right across the screen. I was away for 3 days and wasn't able to access the internet and now that I am back, my photos in my blog are all smaller.
    I obviously haven't changed anything and wondered if anyone else has experienced anything similar in the last few days.

    The blog I need help with is sleepinghorse.wordpress.com.

  2. Sorry, I forgot to say that my blog this forum post refers to is http://mytinybroodofbackyardchooks.wordpress.com

  3. Same thing has happened to one of my blogs. Please help!

    The maximum displayed image widget for Vigilance is 600 pixels.

    Neither of you posted a link to a post or a page with and example of what you are referring to.

  5. oops! I typed " widget" above when I meant to type "width". :(

  6. For instance, on slimpaley.com, the photos were so large they spanned across into the sidebar which I liked. I liked how big my photos were. Then one day last week I logged onto my blog and they were all reduced in size without me ever doing anything.

  7. Images in a post aren't supposed to "span across into the sidebar" (if this used to happen and it's not happening anymore, it means that WP corrected an oversight). If you want full-width images, use a theme that has no sidebar or a theme in which the sidebar is optional, or buy the Custom Design upgrade to remove the sidebar from Vigilance.

  8. I have the custum design upgrade and I do still need a sidebar. Is the Max width of photos able to go larger using the custom design upgrade? And then I can make a smaller sidebar? thanks!

  9. Also, does anyone know a theme that allows extra large photos and has a sidebar already?

  10. Thank you Timethief. I did think that it was a bit strange that I had photos that spanned the whole width of the page when my text was only one column. Like greymattermarketing, I loved the wide photos but I accept that it was probably a mistake. I am happy to have this resolved but will leave this to greymattermarketing to resolve when happy.
