As you all know I am very new to blogging and I must say this stuff takes werk!
I’ve been getting so frustrated with my featured images as I spend a decent amount of time making them, but the whole image was not showing on my blog and I could not figure out why! SO, today I finally got frustrated enough and I googled it and I found that your theme comes with custom dimensions for EVERYTHING (I’m using the free WordPress option).
I found out the I had to go to my theme info and scroll down until I found what the recommended dimensions were for my featured images!! PROBLEM SOLVED-YAYYY!
I’m sharing because this may help someone who might be running into the same issue.. hey, you learn something new everyday!
