There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Help Change thumbnail size in post above colums with Multi Colums Custom Query homepage

At first I thought put a full post above column on my homepage MCCQ model, but I did not realize that if my post had more photos and a long text, it would not look nice on the homepage.

So I opted for a post above the columns, which is an excerpt of the full-post, and the image is an featured image , I want this and only this image is as large as a picture whole article (600 x 400 px)

how can I change the size of that thumbnail in the css code or changing the "src" in the html?

I tried to change the size of that thumbnail, in css, but the quality was very bad, because it was just a thumbnail resized ...

The easiest way to handle this is to make a manual excerpt in the post. A manual excerpt will always take precedence over an automatic excerpt and you can put an image in the manual excerpt the size you want. You may still have to add some CSS to hide the featured image for that post though.

when you edit a post there is a section labeled 'Excerpt' - if you don't see that, click on the tab 'Screen Options' at the top right of the window and in the 'Show on screen' check off the 'Excerpt' box. Now you can enter a manual excerpt

Yes, I have this "Excerpt" area in the edit menu post, but what I dont understand is how do I choose an image that would have a larger size that "featured image" to a that automatically appears, from the "Excerpt" zone?

I think the easiest way would be to show my full article above the colomns and find a way to make functional "more tag" on the homepage MCCQ ... What do you think?

you add an <img…> html statement in and define the size - if you go to the media library and select the image and size, it should give you the url to use.

you use 'body.someclassname' as part of the CSS selector to targer it to only that page

it doesn't matter what I think, it's what you think - it's your site.
