Featured Image in Structure Theme
I have created a new blog post and published it like normal with a featured image selected (http://bradandlindsey.wordpress.com/). However when I open up my home page, the featured image section is simply a grey box. The image shows up fine when I go to the blog post itself but the homepage has an empty large grey box. Any suggestions?
The blog I need help with is bradandlindsey.wordpress.com.
I have noticed that we now have a forum thread from member about featured images disappearing from Inuit Types and from Structure. I’m thinking Staff may be working on theme templates and they may in fact be causing this. I’m flagging the 3 threads for Staff attention. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/problem-with-homepage-2?replies=6
I have another Structure-based blog, and Featured Images has stopped working for my blog as well. Any word on a resolution would be appreciated. Thanks. :-)
I’m sorry but I have no word on a resolution. I have flagged all the threads (Structure, Inuit Types, Chateau) threads for Staff attention and to be moved to the Themes Forum. I can do no more.
@panaghiotisadam: Thanks for your help. That solved the issue immediately. I had no idea about the 620×380 (probably should have) but appreciate your expert help. Great job!
You’re welcome. See here too:
I have the same problem with my feature image theme, it was working a few days ago, and the same picture just vanished today. I also have the right size pixel dimensions, so that cant be it, any other thoughts? thanks :)
@outsiderswindow: As I’m saying in the response I linked to, this must be a temporary bug, since featured images used to work even if not in the right dimensions. But in Structure correct dimensions does solve this problem. The image that should be showing in your homepage area is this:
It’s 445×267, not 620×380.
@panaghiotisadam There is is fact a featured image set for the “October 17, 2011” post, as well as the “Broccoli robbed” post. But no new featured images I set are showing up at at on the site. It’s not just the image box on head of the page.
Is this something that’s being worked on, or do I need to find a new theme for the site?
My featured image In structure is also now not showing up after showing for the months it has been up there. the dimensions are 619 x 379?
Mine isn’t showing either when it was yesterday afternoon. Last night they claimed it could be something on their end but haven’t heard anything else????? Frustrating!
an update, on structure theme, I tweaked the image to exactly 620 x 380 and it worked! : ) odd that it worked before though pre tweaking!
@craiggav: It’s probably a glitch that will be corrected. But as I have already said, you wouldn’t be having this problem if you uploaded images pre-sized to the right dimensions for the theme you’re using (as we volunteers always recommend). The image that should be showing in your Homepage Top area is this:
It’s 600×224 pixels instead of 620×380.
@panaghiotisadam @timethief I’ve used the Structure Theme for over a year now, and I’ve always been very careful about uploading images at their correct size (620 x 380 px for the featured images). Just in case, I’ve checked twice and in fact they are all correct. I can see some of the people here are resizing their images and solving the problem, but I can’t do that, since the images have always been in the correct size. What can I do? When can I expect them to appear again? This is the website: http://sadabombon.com
I also checked ramdom posts throughout the whole site and none of the posts are showing the featured images.
All other images (header, secondary-column images, home page images, etc.) do appear. This problem is only happening in the single post page, like here, where an image should show up at the top: http://sadabombon.com/2011/10/03/ficm/ (it does show up in the home page, though).
This is not my blog or a personal page. It’s my job, with thousands of visitors per week, so a lot depends on it. That’s why I’m very concerned about this problem not being resolved.
@panaghiotisadam sizing the images to 620 x 380 isn’t solving the problem. It makes the featured image show up on the front page, but the featured image doesn’t show up on the post itself. See http://idler-mag.com/2011/10/17/broccoli-robbed-vegetables-to-avoid/ , http://idler-mag.com/2011/10/18/earthbound-i-dont-feel-well/ , http://idler-mag.com/2011/10/19/what-im-watching-the-new-girl/ compared to the main page http://idler-mag.com/
It used to be that structure would resize images, and if that doesn’t work anymore, that’s fine, but even when images are the correct size, there’s something that’s not working properly.
@jzanella and craiggav: yes I know guys. WP suddenly decided that featured images smaller than the recommended dimensions shouldn’t work (because they get blown up so they lose quality). This is a very recent change and I guess they’re still working on it.
@panaghiotisadam So you think eventually images will show up again without me having to do something? Can I do anything besides waiting?
Update on Structure: featured images will show up on the single post as well if their size is 640×392 pixels (or larger).
