    Hiya :)
    I’m running the Balance theme on my site (http://heavenandel.com) and I’d like to have the images show up under the title, the same size as they are on the demo theme.

    From reading elsewhere here on the forum, I gather that this needs to be 600×200 but where do I need to set it as such in my theme settings? And what should I set as the thumbnail size?

    Many thanks in advance for your help,

    El

    Open up your functions.php file. Look for the area for image settings. Add this in there:

    [php]add_image_size( ‘featured’ , 600, 200, TRUE );[/php]

    Thank you :) I did that but it doesn’t seem to have done anything. I checked under the general genesis settings and see that the 600×200 is now listed as a choice for the size of featured image so it has done something, but not what I was hoping it would :)

    Any ideas what I’m missing? Thanks :)

    Open home.php and look for this:

    [php] genesis_grid_loop( array(
    ‘features’ => 1,
    ‘feature_image_size’ => 0,
    ‘feature_image_class’ => ‘align none post-image’,
    ‘feature_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘grid_image_size’ => ‘grid’,
    ‘grid_image_class’ => ‘align none post-image’,
    ‘grid_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘more’ => __( ‘Continue reading…’, ‘genesis’ ),
    ‘posts_per_page’ => 5,
    ) );[/php]
    Where it says “0” for feature image size – change the 0 to the word “featured” (but without the quotes I put).

    Oh… you might need to put it like this – ‘featured’

    Thank you so much … ‘featured’ did it for the home page.

    Not wanting to push my luck but, I was looking for something similar on functions.php (because Balance doesn’t appear to have a single.php) because now the images are showing on the home page but not on the single post page but I couldn’t see anything that might do it. Any ideas?

    The Featured Image doesn’t automatically show up at the top of the posts or pages. That is something you have to manually do.

    Ah, ok, thank you :) I’ve had themes in the past that, when you set a featured image, they showed up on the post so I wondered if this might be the same. Thanks so much for all you help :)

    Love your themes :) I almost went with your pretty theme but I needed something responsive.

    Oh, I haven’t created any of the themes. I am just a volunteer moderator for the Community Forum and do custom edits.

    Ah, sorry, I saw the 8 in your Twitter handle and though you were the lady from 8 crazy designs. My mistake. :)

    Thanks again for all you do here – much appreciated.

    I wanted to re-surface this post, as I too am having image size issues with this theme, both with my featured images in a full size post, along with the teasers (grid).

    The default functions.php included this:

    /** Add new image sizes */
    add_image_size( ‘grid’, 295, 100, TRUE );
    add_image_size( ‘portfolio’, 300, 200, TRUE );

    I added this to the end of that per the conversation above:

    add_image_size( ‘featured’ , 600, 200, TRUE );

    Yet my featured images still appear whatever size the featured image is set. My understanding was that even if the image I set as “featured” is 900×500 (making up a number), this function would resize it to 600×200. Any ideas?
