  1. I’ve been using your “recent news” theme, child of “refined magazine” theme.
    At first it was all looking good, options existed to display various sized featured images within post.
    These worked well with the posts and in the carousel on the home page.
    Then updates came.
    Since these updates, the image resize (quick option, thumbnail, small, medium, etc.) for featured images has gone.
    Now one image per post is not sufficient.
    The featured image is huge on the individual post, looking awful. Even enlarging to blurred at the top of posts.
    The images in the carousel on the homepage now distort the page.
    I tested thinking it was a wordpress update causing this, with another theme and found that other themes are working fine, using the actual size of images and displaying smaller images per post and on front pages.
    It looks a complete mess and I cannot find the correct configurations with the candid theme that will put it back to how it was when I installed and started using the theme before updates.
