    I’ll try it. Thats one of the problems I’m having that I posted in thsi thread b/c I’m having to custom size all of the “featured images” b/c they are not working properly. Let me do as you said and then run the plugin again. I guess I should expect it to change right after the plugin is run?

    Thanks for the fast responses

    Out of curiosity, what is your “Thumbnail size” currently set at? 400 x 267?

    The thumb was set at 150x 150.

    I was having to custom size all of those images. and I can not understand why!

    Here, I have my thumbs set to the size you suggested. I just made a “test post” with a featured image. It doesnt resize it for me

    take a look at the front page of my site and the new post there, with the rottweiler

    When you upload an image in WordPress it’s saved as the original size and a number of other sizes, some of which are determined in Media Settings, and others defined in your functions.php file.

    You could leave the Thumbnail at 150 x 150 and add another size in functions.php.

    Look for this

    /** Add new image sizes */
    add_image_size( 'header', 1600, 9999, TRUE );
    add_image_size( 'portfolio', 330, 230, TRUE );

    add add another like this, for example

    add_image_size( 'custom-featured', 550, 280, TRUE );

    Then you would need to specify that size in home.php

    I’ll give that a try. So if it saves it as a number of other files, why isnt my new post thumb the size of the thumb set in media settings. It is not displaying  a thumb it’s displaying the original image:

    ok I think there’s something overriding my images. I did as you suggested, and it didnt resize the front page images. The thumb size is still overridden by the entire image size…

    Not sure. That might depend on what you chose for the featured image size when you created that post.

    In home.php, the line

    'grid_image_size' => 'featured',

    tells WordPress to use whatever image size was selected for each post as the featured image. You could change ‘featured’ to ‘thumbnail’, or any other pre-set value. That’s what I was referring to in an earlier post in this thread.
