featured image

Thanks to you for this amazing theme. I am currently using the child theme of sparkling for my blog (http://www.kezzytec.com). How can I make the featured image to display smaller and float left of excerpts in the front page for all my post?

Your response will be very valuable to me. Thanks in anticipation.

This is what I intended to achieve

To do this I use this code in the content.php file

<?php if ( is_page_template( 'page-fullwidth.php' ) ) { the_post_thumbnail( 'sparkling-fullwidth', array( 'class' => 'single-featured' )); } else { the_post_thumbnail( 'sparkling-featured', array( 'class' => 'single-featured' )); } ?>

Inside class (.entry-content).
Then I added this to style.CSS file


.entry-content > .single-featured {
        float:left;
}

I will require more assistance to make it clean on my live server.
Thanks.

The last one, how do I get that popular Post display on the sidebar as it appears in the theme screenshot?
