    I’d like to decrease the size of the featured photos that appear on the left side of the blog posts appearing on front page.

    My site is : http://ducttapeandbubblegum.com/

    I have the CSS upgrade, but haven’t been able to figure it out at all. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is ducttapeandbubblegum.com.

    I need also a hint how to change the thumbnail size and how to change the imagesize in the full post view. if i click on the thumbnail the full post appears but the image isnt shown in full size. half picture is cut away. where can i change that?

    Hi juliegustafson,

    It’s not possible to change the size of the image directly, but you can resize it indirectly with CSS. The following should do the trick (paste it into your CSS editor at Appearance > Custom Design > CSS):

    .entry-thumbnail {
        max-width: 28.3333%;
    }

    This will reduce the size quite a bit. What we’re doing here is adjusting the width of the container that holds the image. The image will fill 100% of the container. Tweak the “max-width” percentage until you reach a width you like.

    Let me know how this works for you.

    Hi larastepanovic,

    Could you provide a link to your WordPress.com blog that’s running the Sight theme so that I can take a look? Thanks!

    If you are running Sight on a self-hosted WordPress.org blog, then you can find answers on the WordPress.org support forums.

    i changed the stylesheet myself but now set it to the default style again to work on that image problem….

    also after resetting the stylesheet the problem isnt gone. strange.

    Hi @larastepanovic. I’m looking at this post. You’re using Inuit Types, which displays hard-cropped featured images on single posts. If you would like to remove the top photo on that post, then remove the post’s featured image. Hope that helps.

    So is it possible to change the size of the featured thumbnail on the front page?
