    Crap, crap, why did they have to substitue Twenty Eleven for Duster? It feels like they have replaced something good by something really crappy. All the features I especially liked in Duster have gone. I liked having a featured post with a full size image. Now my image is only displayed in small size and the space for the featured post is cut off. I hate it, hate it, hate it. Unfortunately I didn’t download Duster to my own PC and now there is no way of retrieving it, but I just never imagined they would kick out such a cool Theme. Shame on them

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

    If you previously used Duster on a free hosted WordPress.com blog then you can use it again. > Appearance > Themes

    2011 is just an improved version of Duster: there’s nothing you could do in Duster and cannot do in 2011. See here:

    If your featured images don’t work, the reason is different. See here:

    And link to the blog in question please.

    @timethief: thanks for the quick help. I was able to restore the blog to the Duster theme. I think the issues I was experiencing were connected to the picture size issue, and I thought I had problems because I was using an “old” theme. I really appreciate your help!

    @panaghiodisadam: I actually used a pre-cropped image to use in the feature post and it worked when I put it up around a week ago. But WP seems to have changed some settings/features, so all of a sudden the pics where out of whack. I now circumvented the issue by using a different pic size in the excerpt and it looks now ok, as it did before.

    It’s a site I did for a friend: http://shotokutonkinese.wordpress.com/
    This is the way I want it to look, so I hope they don’t change stuff around again.

    Thanks for your input, too, but in Twenty Eleven the Featured Post seems limited in height…

    Thank you both, I was almost at the hair-pulling stage ;-)
