    i’ve just switched from chateau to manifest theme and am working out some kinks.
    i want to be able to increase my max image sizes. if i look under media in my dashboard, it says the large file size is 1024 x 1024. but when i upload images, the large is not available for me to click {only small, medium, and full}. full size is 500 x 500 {i want bigger!}.
    so i do not understand the 1024 listed under the media tab.

    ***how can i increase allowable size of my images?
    do i need to upgrade to custom?
    if so, will i need knowledge of CSS to do this?

    thanks for any input!

    The blog I need help with is



    See here for maximum displayed image widths by theme

    See here for custom image header dimensions

    See the Manifest single column Tumble blog theme description fro the blog linked to your username here

    If you are referring to another blog wearing a different theme then every theme has a description and live demo site see here >

    You cannot build or use your own custom theme built from scratch at

    The only themes we can use are those found here > Appearance > Themes
    This is a multiuser blogging platform. All blogs wearing the same theme are using the same underlying template and we cannot access the underlying files and edit templates or themes.

    There are two free themes, Sandbox and Toolbox designed to allow maximum flexibility for CSS editing and creating new “skins”. Toolbox is more modern and includes a lot of support for CSS3 and HTML5, so it is really only limited by your skills and knowledge.

    If you have CSS editing experience the upgrade will allow you to stylize the appearance of themes you find here > Appearance > Themes, but will not allow you to change the functionality, by editing the underlying template. It does not allow you to remove footer links to the theme designer or to Also note that CSS is theme specific, so you cannot use the CSS stylesheets from other themes with the themes at WordPress.COM.

    timethief, thank you for your response.

    i’m still a little confused however because there is a blog i visit which is a manifest theme, and their images are clearly bigger than 500 x 500. so i’m wondering how i can do the same…



    That’s the version of the Manifest theme and you can tell that is is by lciking the “proudly powered by WordPress” link in the footer of the theme.

    Question: How can I make Manifest theme wider?
    Answer: By purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.


    thank you so much!!!
