    Hello Cali75,

    Here’s what’s going on: the picture that you uploaded is too small to cover the area of the featured image (see screenshot).

    Basically the image you upload needs to be bigger than 1596 x 860 to cover that area (this size is slightly bigger than logical size for sharper display on Retina-like devices).

    So basically, I’d say just upload the images that are 1920 by the bigger side, and WordPress together with the theme will do the rest for you — they will create copies of the image in all the needed sizes including the one for the big first image.

    However for situations when you don’t have a bigger image, you can do the following to center the image in the cover area:

    Use the following CSS code:

    .entry-thumb-wrapper {text-align: center;}

    You can insert custom CSS with this plugin. Once you install and activate it, in your Admin Panel please go to ‘Appearance’ > ‘Custom CSS’, paste the code and save.

    It’s great to see the Essentialist being used for a contemporary photography website. I mean it. I’ve been printing photos in my bathroom during school years =) I hope the theme is serving you well. Thank you for using it for your project.

    Regards,
    Paul

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for your kind words. The site is my father’s in law project. I just help with the configuration and setting and technical manteinance ; ) He writes and publish the content and know a lot of photography.

    I think I haven’t explain the problem very well.
    It happens in all the posts. If I put any post first. And this problem never has happened before.
    Here you can have examples of what’s happening.

    It’s a great thing to do. Say hi when you see him )

    As for the issue, the code that I’ve posted should fix that for any post being the first on the front page. Can you please insert the code as I described (with the Simple Custom CSS plugin) and then let me know if it has worked out for you?

    Hi Paul,

    Code appears to work. But I’m now wondering why? Before i didn’t need a css code.
    What do you think is the problem?

    Having tried to load a smaller image into theme demo, I can see that the default code of the theme would align it left, not center. So there’s no particular issue with your website. I guess you did not face this behavior before because you were perhaps using bigger images.

    Regards,
    Paul

    Hello Paul,

    Every image I used before get centered. And now the same images are aligned left.
    I like the theme configuration have change somehow.

    Anyway, does the theme supports PHP 7.0 or advanced?

    thanks
    best regards,

    Should you notice something strange again, just contact me here.
    Yes, the theme has been tested on PHP 7 and is compatible with it.
