Featured image auto crop


I’ve read several forums but I can’t seem to find a suitable fix.

When uploading a “featured image,” everything goes well, and I’m able to see the full photo while viewing my draft post.

However, when publishing the post, it always crops the featured image automatically. I have deselected the “crop thumbnail” setting and set the height to 9999, as suggested in other forums, but nothing’s worked thus far.

I don’t have a problem with any of my other images, just the featured image.

Please help! Thanks, S

Hi @scr23,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can try achieving this by using custom plugin shared in the following topic.

Hi Movin,

Thanks SO much. That was a perfect fix!

I installed both plugins as you advised, and ran the “regenerate thumbnails” action on all my featured images, and it worked without any hassles.

Have a lovely day.


You are most welcome here :slight_smile:
