    @weartone : Je vois que tu as découvert la différence entre image et featured image. Super. C’est un plaisir d’avoir pu t’aider.
    @yellowhouseliverpool and lov3d : It’s a pleasure… great.

    @tassiopee: Quelle sera la grandeur de la featured image sur la featured image? C’est qu’elle est un peu étirée…

    Hi guys. I’m relatively new to the whole blogging thing and only using the free browser version of wordpress. I’ve just switched to Structure theme but can’t seem to get anything to appear in the top bit, below the featured article headline. I can put a widget in the “homepage top right” section but the bit to the left of that is just a grey box – i can’t see any option to put anything there.

    How do i resolve this?!

    @weartobe : Important: the images must be 620×380 pixels or they get distorted. (extract from http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/05/01/introduction-to-structure/ °

    @cjv91 : this big grey box is supposed to be filled by an image… a featured image to highlight an article (post). If you create a nex post you have to click on insert an image, choose you image but instead of clicking ” insert in tne post” you click just near this button on “use as featured image”. If you attributed the appropriate category (see theme options) this new image will fill the big grey box and the title of your post will appear above.

    Hope this will help

    This theme doesn’t make sense; it is impossible to have the images from other posts on the main screen unless they are in the featured image category (e.g ‘Pets’). So, if you post about something else (let’s say ‘Poetry’) and it’s not in that same category, then you will not be able to see an image for that post, as you might on a normal blog. It’s also an awkward theme because it means you have two of the same image on the home-page which generally looks pretty crap. I’m not sure the designers didn’t notice this… What’s the point in creating a theme called structure which is so obviously, structurally flawed?

    The theme is specifically designed to display a featured image from the category of the bloggers choice. See > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/05/01/introduction-to-structure/

    Let’s start with this. The blog linked to your username produces a 404 – page not found. Please post the link to the blog in question starting with http://

    The default category for all wordpress blogs is “Uncategorized”. A default category will be assigned to any published post in the case you don’t specify one. If you wish to assign another one to your posts and designate it as the default category then you can do so. This default category can be set under Settings > Writing.

    However, until we have the correct link to the blog in question we cannot view the blog and provide any specific help so please post it.

    Thank you very much for your solution as it helped a lot. Unfortunately, after using this feature for some time, another problem hit me. Example: I post a new entry with featured image of acceptable size, then go on my home page and – BOOM! The new post is at the top of the entry lists, but above, where the latest article is shown with the feutured image of the latest post, comes the article from some late post. Any ideas how to fix this? Tnx!

    The image above will be the last one of the posts that you would have published in the category defined in Apparence >Theme Options.
    Apparently, yours is Kuho. So if you want it above, categorize you post in Kuho.
