    Hi! We just started up the blog section and had two questions about what appears here: http://friendshippetpantry.org/blog/

    – Is there a way to generate a link at the end of excerpts to “read more” or “continue reading”?

    – Can we increase the thumbnail image (featured image) that appears here to 200 x 200?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is friendshippetpantry.org.

    1. That is not currently a feature in Arcade.

    2. You control the size of your thumbnails under Settings → Media in the admin. Increase the size there and it will be reflected on your site.

    Thanks!

    1. Feature wish list :-)

    2. That’s what I thought; the thumbnail size was set to 150 x 150, but the image appeared at 93 (height) x 150 (width). I increased it to 200 x 200, and now it appears as 124 x 200. So it doesn’t seem to want to do square.

    That’s OK, though, increasing it helped a bit. Thanks again.

    Sorry, one follow-up —

    Is there code to add to the custom CSS to make the headlines on the blog index page appear like other active links (light blue?): http://friendshippetpantry.org/blog/

    For your 200px by 200px image setting did you check the “crop” option?

    Use this CSS to change your post titles to blue:

    .entry-title a {
    	color: #5cbde0;
    }
