    Is there any way to edit the portion of an article’s featured image that is shown in the preview on the front page? My thumbnail preview on the bottom of the front page appears as I would like it, however the large preview up top has an “unfortunate” focus. I’m not sure if its best to fix this by finding a way to resize the preview, or it there is a way to simply choose where the preview focuses.

    Visit to see what I’m talking about.



    Any ideas?



    WP center crops all images by default and you can’t change this behaviour (without hacking the core files). There’re some hacks out there like: (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -crop-position-in-wordpress/ – however I haven’t tested them and it will affect all images.


    You’d be better off using a different size for the featured image area in your posts. The one you are using isn’t very high. You can change it in functions.php.
