    When adding a featured image to my blog posts, I am unable to make the image scale to fit entirely within the post box (on the landing page). Any suggestions? Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is: reelioblog.wordpress.com

    Hi Reelio,

    When adding your posts, make sure that you have chosen a featured image for the post, that will act as the post’s “cover” which will fill the box on listing pages, and the header on single pages.

    Thanks, Marc. I see this as an option. The problem I am having is the images I use are not auto-scaling to fit within the preview boxes on the landing page of the blog. Do I need to scale these manually or is there a way to have it done automatically? Doing it manually seems like it would be an issue when changing devices (responsiveness). If I do have to do it manually, could you let me know the dimensions of the post preview boxes. Thanks again!

    Hi Mark,

    The home page box dimensions are 620 x 550px.

    I’d suggest using a really large image to accommodate the post single pages as well.

    It’s important to note that images scale down only and now up, which means we cannot take a small image and stretch it, we can only shrink large images.

    Hope that helps, let me know.
