More info: if you set the content limit, you can still have the Featured Image set, it’s not automatically stripped away as you stated in a previous thread.
You can test this for yourself like this:
Create three posts in a category, set a specific feature image in two of them, and insert a post image that’s of a smaller width than what’s defined for the chosen feature image for archives in the third one.
When you view that category listing, with either content limit or excerpts, that article without a defined featured image will display the post image you used as the featured image, and it won’t be as wide as the other images.
Not even the Featured Widget Amplified plugin gets around this behavior.
I’ve been running several magazine sites since 2005, and this Featured Image conundrum has been a problem since before Studio Press moved to Genesis. I got around it by training my magazine contributors to always use a Featured Image of a specific size, no matter what size post image they included. I still get uneven images now and then, but people forget instructions, so what can you do? 🙂
I’m better at tweaking PHP now than I was a few years ago, but with having to make sure sites won’t break with WP 3.6 and Genesis 2.0 updates, and figuring out what I can update now and what has to wait until later for both my sites and my client sites, I just didn’t have time to tackle and test out what would specifically work for this scenario now.
I was just happily surprised to finally run into someone else who thought this behavior was a problem!
