    Hi,

    I played around with featured images for a while, but I can get exact behaviour I need.

    My blog post page has right sidebar. So the view is splinted with 2 columns, which is ok. I want to display featured image with has height 400px and width auto or 100%. But I can find a way to set it.

    I also struggle with setting blog page posts, with grid layout, proper, thumbnails sizes, no exterts only images + author + title. I don’t know how to do it without making home page blog page.

    I use Gutenberg to create blog page with “latest posts” element. I’m not sure if that’s the best way to do it.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Hi there,

    The theme settings don’t apply to the Latest Posts Block.
    If you want a standard Blog page, then:

    1. Create a new empty page, titled Blog. Publish this.
    2. Dashboard > Settings > Reading – set your new Blog page to Display your Latest posts.

    Now you can use the Customizer > Layout > Blog to style that page and set the Featured Image Height to 400px, just don’t add a width for the image to scale to its own aspect ratio:
