    Hello Support,

    I’d like to have the featured image show its actual size on both the main “blog” page and the actual post page.

    I looked through past support tickets and haven’t found anything that answers this specifically.

    Can you help?

    Thank you,

    P.S. Congratulations on your new company growth! gw


    Hey Greg!

    Try the following:
    1. Install this plugin:
    2. Go to Settings > Media
    3. Change the “entry_without_sidebar” and “entry_with_sidebar” image size (increase its width / height).
    4. Regenerate the thumbnails by clicking the button at the bottom.

    Best regards,


    Hello Yigit/Support,

    Sorry for my delay in responding…

    So there is no way to change the code so that the default/actual image size is loaded as the featured image? (My experience with the client is that the featured image size isn’t consistent – and they’d like the original image uploaded for featuring to be loaded.)



    Can the code be changed so that it loads the actual image size for any placement of the featured image?



    It is possible but you have to modify the includes > loop-index.php file. Look for this code around line 46:

    $size = strpos($blog_style, 'big') ? (strpos($current_post['post_layout'], 'sidebar') !== false) ? 'entry_with_sidebar' : 'entry_without_sidebar' : 'square';

    Replace “entry_with_sidebar” and “entry_without_sidebar” with “no scaling” or “full”.

    Best regards,


    Hello Ismael,

    Almost there – it’s perfect for the single post page…

    It’s still loading the images larger then their original size on the main blog page:
    main blog page

    Can you help with that? (I’m pretty happy, though, right now…)




    use this css code:
    .big-preview, .single-big {

    width: 80%;
    height: auto !important;

    and adjust width value as needed.

    Best regards,


    Hello Andy/Support,

    I dropped that code/css in place – the images are still loading “enlarged” on the main blog/writing page:

    Click through to the actual post and you’ll see the actual size of the featured image is quite a bit smaller.

    my apologies for dropping this for so long…

    This is resolved and the ticket can be closed. (I think the last instructions worked – and it was a chache issue I was experiencing.)

    Thank you,
