    Is there any way to make the first post on each page not be so large? The theme appears to make the first post of each page a “feature” like post, but it stretches the image full width. I would prefer that my first post match the sizing of the other posts to the page and not be so blown out. Any insight how to adjust that?


    The reason why this is not great is that if you post a vertical image it is huge!


    Hi emalakoff,

    I think your best, easiest option is going to be set the height of image. You can do this by adding the code below to your custom.css or Quick CSS.

    #top .slideshow li img {

    This will cut off the image height wise at 415 pixels which is the same height as the images found on the live demo.




    Thank you for your suggestion, but it still stretches the image to the fixed width of that column. I would prefer the first post to be like all other posts that has the white space to the left of the image.


    In sentence/includes/format-standard.php replace following code:

    if($post_loop_count === 1)
    $post_class .= " big-slideshow-post";
    $slider->customClass('seven units alpha offset-by-one');


    $slider->customClass('seven units alpha offset-by-one');

    All slideshow will be equal afterwards and there’s no first, “featured” post/slideshow.


    If we would like the max height of these images to be more than 415, how do we go about accomplishing that?

    I have tried to change this in two places:

    in custom css:

    #top .slideshow li img {



    Did not work. Then I tried in functions.php to change 415 to 815 there; also didn’t work.

    Of course I reloaded the image each time to see whether the theme would cut them down to 415 again. Where is the maxheight=415 I’m missing?


    For the featured imgSize in the functions.php file, change the height (as you’ve already done). Then make sure to regenerate the thumbnails and not just reload the image.

    You can also use: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-image-sizes/ to change the size and regenerate.

    That should do it, but there may also need to be some css adjustment made since the slideshow.css file also has some height properties on the big-slideshow class selector.
