Issue with thumbnail Answered

A few days ago i changed my main photo on my instructables https://www.instructables.com/id/Improve-your-renewable-energy-setup/ using the new editor, but the thumbnail didn't change. I have tried moving other photos around and changing it again but it made no difference.

I am running windows 7 with Firefox and it make no difference with Internet explore or on another computer running XP. I have also tried changing it again with the old editor and that made no difference.

Please help :)

This is a known issue that is currently being worked on.

One way to fix it is to go into the new editor, unpublish it, then make sure the main image selector is right and republish it.  Please be aware if you do this, it will change your publish date to today's date and will remove you from any contests you are entered in.

yea im not going to do this as i am in three contests that close relatively soon or have closed and are being judged and i don't want it to screw up those. Thanks, i hope its fixed soon :)

I am having the same problem with mine. I changed the main picture and it is not accepting the change https://www.instructables.com/id/Pop-Up-Circuit-Cards/. I am waiting to be approved for a contest so I also do not want to unpublish it at this time.
