Set a 620x300 image as the featured image for your blog post. The bottom 80 (60 now?) pixels are covered with a translucent frame with the first line of your blog text, so think about that when cropping your image. If you can think far enough in advance, take a picture composited REALLY wide for the featured image. Ian leaves the grid on his camera display and composites in only the top half of the grid - this works out pretty well.

The FamiLAB Blog

The FamiLAB blog, located at www.familab.org/blog (also a redirect from www.familab.org) is a Wordpress installation hosted by (get info from Mack)

The Arras Theme

We use the Arras theme - we saw it used by AlphaOne Labs and decided to R&D it. To make your posts work properly on Arras, you need to know a few things:

Categories

The Arras theme has a carousel of images (and corresponding posts) on the main page, followed by a grid of post images, then a list of other posts. Selection of posts into these areas is controlled by Wordpress Categories. There are three FamiLAB categories that drive these:

Main Stories

The 6 most recent (post date / time) posts with the "Main Stories" flag will appear in the carousel at the top of the blog home page.

Featured Posts

The 9 most recent (post date / time) posts with the "Featured Posts" flag will appear in the carousel at the top of the blog home page.

Featured Image

Set a 620x300 image as the featured image for your blog post. The bottom 80 (60 now?) pixels are covered with a translucent frame with the first line of your blog text, so think about that when cropping your image. If you can think far enough in advance, take a picture composited REALLY wide for the featured image. Ian leaves the grid on his camera display and composites in only the top half of the grid - this works out pretty well.
