Featured image on posts

I am unable to change the size of the featured image on blog posts. The photo takes up the entire screen. I need a featured image, so that my posts will show up on a page of recent posts. If I put the photo in the text, then all that shows up on the page of posts is text. Help, anyone?

Hi Laura,

Would it be possible for you to provide a link to your site, please? So we can take a closer look. We should be able to resolve this with some CSS.

Also, if you add your image to the text, that image won’t show up in the excerpt. The reason for this is that the excerpt strips out all formatting.



You guys are so awesome.

Here is the page I like: http://www.areasonforfaith.info/testimonials-2/.

Here is the page I don’t like because of the huge picture: http://www.areasonforfaith.info/women-in-the-church/


Hi Laura,

Can you add the following CSS, please.

.single .fl-post-thumb {
    max-width: 50%;

You may want to play around with the value to get your desired look.


Exactly where would I put that CSS code?

Hey Laura,

Since you’re using the BB theme, you can place the code under Appearance > Customize > Code > CSS Code. :slight_smile:


That worked beautifully. Thanks so much for your help. You guys are wonderful!

No worries at all, Laura! Glad we could help. :slight_smile: Enjoy!
