Hey, quick question:
I’ve set my homepage header image, but it gets replaced by the last post’s featured image. How do I stop that? I do still want my posts to have a featured image.September 21, 2016 at 2:41 pm #99827September 21, 2016 at 5:59 pm #99842
– Problem: The homepage header image is taken from the last post’s featured image. I want the homepage header to be what I choose.
– “Route” and “Bicycle” pages have working custom headers
– “Gallery” and “Contact” still have the one I’ve set to be the default homepage header image. This is the one that should also be on the front page.
Another problem: Both posts have featured images of size 1440×480. One is cropped to ugly square-ish dimensions, while the other remains a panorama. Why are they different, or how can I prevent the crop?September 22, 2016 at 10:33 am #99941
@quick-question: Its strange that your homepage is showing latest post’s featured image as header image. I checked the same on our server and it is working fine, default custom header is displaying in homepage and other pages(with no featured image). If you are using any plugins, please try disabling it and try again. And please try clearing your server’s cache too.
And about the Featured image size, you can use any image size you want to. Try using image of same size or at least with same aspect ratio. I seems that the image you are using is of different sizes, one is wide and the other is not.
Please let me know further.

I haven’t installed any plugins yet. Haven’t tried clearing the cache yet.
Like I already said, both images are the same size: 1440×480. I’ve tried removing and replacing them, but it doesn’t help.
Thank you for your replies, but I might start looking for another theme.September 22, 2016 at 4:34 pm #99965
@quick-question: We may have to look into your server to check the issue since on our sever its all working just fine.

Would that require any special permissions? I switched back for now, if that helps.September 23, 2016 at 10:38 am #100047September 27, 2016 at 12:20 pm #100375
@quick-question: I checked your site, its kinda strange, how latest post’s image is being set as header image. The feature in theme on our server is working fine, no such issue. Have you modified or made any customization to the theme? Please take a backup and reinstalling theme. Let me know further.
MaheshSeptember 27, 2016 at 7:51 pm #100408
I haven’t made any modifications. I installed the theme from scratch on another address and had the same issue.September 28, 2016 at 12:44 pm #100476
@quick-question: Its kinda strange to see such problem in your server. On ours its all working just fine. If its okay for you to reset the settings, please try resetting the settings and check again.
And I did upload the image again to the post and the thumbnails are quite same of size now.
MaheshSeptember 28, 2016 at 1:42 pm #100478
Same as in cropped, or like the original?
Edit: I guess you meant my server – so both are cropped. It’s slightly better that they’re the same, but what I really wanted is no cropping. Just the original panorama style.
I think maybe this was broken/changed in the last update. The other featured photo that didn’t get cropped was uploaded before the update, and since then all photos get cropped.
Anyway, this problem I can live with. But the one in the title of the post really needs a solution. I’ll try a few more things before giving up.September 28, 2016 at 4:03 pm #100489
@quick-question: For large image, you’ll need to create a child theme. You can find more details on creating child theme HERE. Then in your child theme override
fabulous_fluid_content_image(inc/extras.php) function and change this line
<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
<?php the_post_thumbnail( 'fabulous-fluid-slider' ); ?>
The problem with the header image you are having is really strange. Its only on your server I am facing this issue. Please try resetting the settings.
MaheshSeptember 28, 2016 at 9:37 pm #100503
I reset all settings, which removed the header image. I went to header settings, re-selected “Entire site, Page/Post featured image” and selected the desired header image. But it still chose the one from the latest post, not the one I just selected.September 29, 2016 at 10:32 am #100531
@quick-question: I know, you must have been frustrated by now since the problem is still persisting. Please try reinstalling a fresh copy of WordPress and the theme and try again. May it fix the issue.
MaheshSeptember 29, 2016 at 1:27 pm #100543
I already did that on another domain (same server). No change.September 29, 2016 at 3:51 pm #100558
