Featured header in About page doesn't work

    I’m using the Twenty Eleven theme. I’m using featured headers on other pages with no problem. But when I create one for the About page, even though it shows up at the Edit screen, when I view the page, I get the main header image. What gives?

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

    Unless I happened to look in while you were editing your site, I see the same image on your site’s front page on the majority of your other pages.

    For a featured header (parent pages only) you need to designate a featured image in the Featured Image module in the Page/Post Editor. If you don’t see that module, make sure it is checked in the Screen Options tab in the upper right corner of the Page/Post Editor screen.

    Sorry, not parent pages only!

    The featured image needs to be in the pixel dimensions the theme requires for header images. See Appearance > Header.

    I’ve been creating all headers at 1000×288 pixels, as recommended for this theme. And the others have all worked. But I’m glad you reminded me, justpi, because I went back and checked the dimensions, and sure enough, when I edited the image, I ended up with some other screwball pixel dimension. Re-edited to 1000×288, problem solved.

    Thanks for the reminder!
