How to Fix WordPress 2014 Featured Image Size Problem

So, if you’re excited about the new WordPress theme, but can’t get the featured images to display right on the featured posts, don’t worry. I had the same problem with one of my sites. It kept using the thumbnail instead of the full-size image.

To fix this problem you need to edit content-featured-post.php. Find the code that looks like this:

if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) :
if ( ‘grid’ == get_theme_mod( ‘featured_content_layout’ ) ) {
the_post_thumbnail();
} else {
the_post_thumbnail( ‘twentyfourteen-full-width’ );
}
endif;

Then add the bolded code.

if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) :
if ( ‘grid’ == get_theme_mod( ‘featured_content_layout’ ) ) {
the_post_thumbnail(‘twentyfourteen-full-width’);
} else {
the_post_thumbnail( ‘twentyfourteen-full-width’ );
}
endif;

Upload to your child theme and you’re done!
