    When I create a post, even if I use advanced options on the image I paste into the post and set the image size, the image sizes in the front page columns are not sized the same – even though I set them that way in the advanced image screen of WordPress.

    How can I make the images show all the same size in the columns on the front page? I would like all images re-sized to be the width of the columns and the height to be 1//2 the column width. In the example below, I set the image sizes to be 280×140 in the advanced image settings, but you can see that they do not display that way.

    You can see my example here…


    While you’re busy ignoring this request….here’s another.

    Would it be possible to make the featured items on the front page get X number of chars, sentences or lines and automatically break at about the same length for each post without the author having to find a good break point by trial and error?



    you can limit the excerpt length with following filter/code snippet:

    It’s not easily possible to truncate standard html content though because this can cause various html coding errors (i.e. if paragraph or span tags are not closed properly).

    A workaround would be to use the new “text-overflow: ellipsis;” attribute: which isn’t supported by all browsers and the results can vary.


    Thanks for the pointer. I’ll play with that excerpt thing and see how far it gets me.
