I love the new autofocus theme and would love to use on my blog. However, I cannot get pictures to show on front page, only on the individual posts. I’m adding pictures via URL, and instead of a photo, a grey box appears for each post. When you click on the grey box, the photos do appear on individual posts.
WordPress needs the image on its servers so that it can create manipulate the images for use on the front page. With images offsite, the browser downloads the image directly. It doesn’t go though the wordpress system at all.
