    Hi!

    I’m having issues with setting image sizes for the featured slider and the automatically generated thumbnail.

    The Featured Slider is a rectangular image (667×375), and the thumbnail is a square (about 200×200 by the looks of it).

    I’d like to learn how to do two things:

    (a) change the thumbnail to be the same aspect ratio as the featured slider (about 2:1)
    (b) have the ability to use a completely separate image for the thumbnail. As it stands it only looks like the thumbnail pulls from the featured image. (I’m not sure if this is an option in the pro version – if so, let me know and I can upgrade.)

    So far I have tried resizing the thumbnail in the media settings to 200×100, which didn’t work; and I looked through these forums to find any advice – which only led me to this post: https://catchthemes.com/support-forum/topic/change-the-size-of-a-post-thumnail-doesnt-work; which didn’t offer a solution for customizing the child theme, only that it was possible. (I can figure out customization with a child theme with some guidance.)

    If someone could show me the documentation where I could figure out these two items, I’d really appreciate it!

    Thank you so much!

    @queenbuzzy: Hello there,
    To change the post thumbnail to the same aspect ratio as that of the featured slider you will need to create a child theme and do a little bit of customization. Let me know if you are familiar with child theme customization so that I can help you out.

    It is not possible to have two separate image for slider and blog posts using posts or page. What you can do is use Custom Type in the featured slider and upload the images and content to it and then upload the featured image in posts that suits the blog posts structure.

    Let me know if this helps you out!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha

    Hi Skandha,

    Thanks so much for your quick reply! I am familiar with child theme customization – I have one installed, and I’m comfortable altering it if you let me know which file and where.

    And by any chance is this theme compatible with Elementor? I’ve heard conflicting information.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Skandha,

    I just wanted to follow up on this thread. I am still interested in the child theme customization, and curious if this theme is compatible with Elementor.

    Thanks!

    @queenbuzzy: Hello there,
    Go to => Child Theme Folder => functions.php and add the following Code.

    function new_image_size() {
    	set_post_thumbnail_size( 963, 642, true );
    }
    add_action('init', 'new_image_size');

    You can change the post thumbnail size to the size of your choice.

    You shouldn’t have any issues using Elementor but if you do you can always post in the support forum.

    Let me know if this works out!
    Kind Regards,
    Skandha
