    To whom it may concern:

    The featured image and post title on the front page of my blog has not changed to the most recent post since a particular earlier one was published, which remains displayed continually. Have I overlooked a setting which will allow for this menu item to change or is this an issue with the website programming? Thank you very much for your time and your looking into the matter.
    Have a great day!

    Sincerely,

    Do you have the theme options set up to show your latest post there, or did you set it up to only show posts from a featured category and if you did, is that category assigned to your latest posts?

    From the structure theme description page (my emphasis):

    The first thing to take note of in the theme options is the Featured Category. By selecting one of your blog categories here you can restrict what gets featured in your featured post area. If you choose the “fashion” category, for example, only the latest post from that category will appear at the top of the home page. It’s a great way to take a little more control over the home page of your site. The image that appears there is up to you. You can select the image by choosing a Featured Image. We have some great information about Featured Images in our support documentation.

    Also take a look at this post by Panos.

    Hi Ben,
    It looks like that is a function of the theme you are using. I read a little on the theme description and saw this:
    “Take note of the featured post area…. That’s the area with the large post title just below the header and the large Featured Image. The first thing to take note of in the theme options is the Featured Category. By selecting one of your blog categories here you can restrict what gets featured in your featured post area. If you choose the “fashion” category, for example, only the latest post from that category will appear at the top of the home page.”
    It looks like you need to change a setting for the which blog category is featured to change that image, or to update that blog category with a new post, which will then automatically update that featured area.
    Good luck!
