Vigilance theme media – Photos decreased in size

    Has anyone had problems with their media in the Vigilance theme. I chose this theme because the photos (when selecting large size) went right across the screen. I was away for 3 days and wasn’t able to access the internet and now that I am back, my photos in my blog are all smaller.
    I obviously haven’t changed anything and wondered if anyone else has experienced anything similar in the last few days.

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

    The maximum displayed image widget for Vigilance is 600 pixels.

    Neither of you posted a link to a post or a page with and example of what you are referring to.

    oops! I typed ” widget” above when I meant to type “width”. :(

    For instance, on slimpaley.com, the photos were so large they spanned across into the sidebar which I liked. I liked how big my photos were. Then one day last week I logged onto my blog and they were all reduced in size without me ever doing anything.

    Images in a post aren’t supposed to “span across into the sidebar” (if this used to happen and it’s not happening anymore, it means that WP corrected an oversight). If you want full-width images, use a theme that has no sidebar or a theme in which the sidebar is optional, or buy the Custom Design upgrade to remove the sidebar from Vigilance.

    I have the custum design upgrade and I do still need a sidebar. Is the Max width of photos able to go larger using the custom design upgrade? And then I can make a smaller sidebar? thanks!

    Also, does anyone know a theme that allows extra large photos and has a sidebar already?

    Thank you Timethief. I did think that it was a bit strange that I had photos that spanned the whole width of the page when my text was only one column. Like greymattermarketing, I loved the wide photos but I accept that it was probably a mistake. I am happy to have this resolved but will leave this to greymattermarketing to resolve when happy.
