I am currently using Activello – Version 1.3.6
When I first started, all the featured images appeared square on the Home Page Preview. After 3 posts, they all turned to a rectangle image on the Home Page. I had created them to look best at square, and preferred the square appearance. How do I change it back so that all the Home Page previews for the posts use the Square versions of my Featured Image?

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.
Could you please try regenerating thumbnails using the following plugin?
Also could you please share me your site URL where it’s happening so that i can troubleshoot it?

Have you tried regenerating thumbnails using the following plugin?
If not the please do it first.November 3, 2017 at 4:45 pm #130401
@movin I do have it installed. I successfully went through and regenerated all of the Featured Images. But the Home Page Preview has not changed.November 4, 2017 at 11:16 am #130455
Actually this is how it displays by default which you can see on the demo site here https://colorlib.com/activello/
If you want to change default image sizes then you can do so using attached custom plugin that contains following custom code in which you can change image sizes.
add_image_size( 'activello-featured', 1170, 550, true ); add_image_size( 'activello-slider', 1920, 550, true ); add_image_size( 'activello-thumbnail', 330, 220, true ); add_image_size( 'activello-medium', 640, 480, true ); add_image_size( 'activello-big', 710, 335, true );

Great, thanks @movin Quick question, how do I install it, or where do I place that code. I am not too familiar with html and code. Thanks again for all your help!November 5, 2017 at 6:10 pm #130589
This is the error it gave me when I tried to install it.
Installing Plugin from uploaded file: colorlib-divilab-plugin.php
Unpacking the package…
The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signatureNovember 6, 2017 at 8:37 am #130638
You are doing it wrong.
You have to upload the colorlib-divilab-plugin-117.zip file and not the .php file extracted from it.November 6, 2017 at 10:07 am #130646
Ok, @movin I downloaded the Zip, and it installed. It still appears the same. Is there further steps I need to take once installed?November 7, 2017 at 9:00 am #130756
After installing the shared plugin, please activate it and then regenerate the thumbnails on your site using the following plugin.November 7, 2017 at 9:19 pm #130868lucieParticipant
thank you for your step by step advice. However – I used the plugin first. Almost all the thumbnails are regenerated now – which is great. Then I downloaded the other plugin (colorlib-divilab-plugin-117.zip). Before downloading I just changed some size formats in php file. But I cannot see any changes. How is that possible? Did I do anything wrong?
For example I would like to have a different dimensions of the first post image (see the screenshot below). Because it is still cropped. And also if you click on the post, the image has the same size as on the homepage. It means the bottom is cut off.
Hopefully I made myself clear and you understand my troubles.

You can just display the image as it is without resizing using the attached modified plugin so that you can set the image whatever size you want to.
To use the attached plugin, you have to first delete the existing custom plugin.

Thank you for your quick response. However I deleted the first plugin. Then i downloaded the new one and change the sizes. I installed it, activated but it doesn’t show any changes. Any ideas? (See the screenshots below – that’s how I’d like to have the dimensions.)
