  1. I'm using the version of Thematic and I've added in a featured image to be used throughout the theme I'm working on. Is there an easy way to change the thumbnail image(entry-thumb)that's used with excerpts to something other then 100px X 100px? Or is this controlled by Wordpress? I've change the thumbnail size in media and that didn't work.

  2. you are on the right track. but WP creates the files at the sizes define when you upload the image. it doesn't resize them after you change the media size. so you need to change the media size and then use something like this plugin:

    to regenerate your thumbnails at the new size you desire.

  3. Thanks again helgatheviking. That did the trick. The only strange thing is there's a class added to all the images .attachment-100x100 and the a width and height of 100 is hard coded onto the image. Not a big deal I can override it with css it's just not real semantic to use .attachment-100x100 and then change the image size to 250 x 250. I'm not sure if it's Wordpress or Thematic adding the class.

  4. Hi Eric,

    There is a filter for that.

    function child_post_thumb() {
        return array(200,200);

    and it's use in thematic_content() found here: thematic>library>extensions>content-extensions.php

    There is also a thematic_post_thumb_attr filter for the attribute parameter.

  7. This works great, but Im getting a problem with the thumbnail over lapping the next post... any thoughts?

  8. Or even better is there a function to move the thumb image elsewhere?

  9. where do you want to move it? you probably need to clear:both on .hentry or something. hard to say w/o a link.

  12. Apologies!
    Its open now.

    Thanks for your help.

  13. still can't see your site, but if changing the CSS to float: left isn't enough for your thumbnails you will need to change their position in markup by filtering thematic_post (inside the thematic_content() function)
