I’ve just installed the theme on my staging area.
I’m noticing that images are much bigger.
On the staging site, though, it explodes:
I certainly can’t go back through 900 posts and manually change all of the images. Is this a quick fix or override setting that I’ve missed?
Yes, there is an option in the theme settings that can change where the featured image appears. If you navigate to Appearance > Theme Settings > Blog > Featured Image (in the WordPress dashboard), you will see that you can choose to have the images besides posts as opposed to above posts. That should get you fixed up right away! Let us know if we can assist further and thanks again!
This is a separate issue.
See how that’s certainly not the featured image.
