Latest News Widget Image override

I am trying to change the image size for the Latest News Widget on my homepage and I can’t. I go to Theme Functions (functions.php) and try to change add_image_size(‘sydney-medium-thumb’, 550, 650, true) to the image size I want but it’s not letting me.

I have done this in the past and it worked, but after a theme update, it’s not letting me anymore. What can I do? I’d like the images on my homepage to be bigger.

Thank you,


Hello Monica,

Your new size won’t be applied until you regenerate your images. You can regenerate them with this plugin.
