Force 1:1 images in listing viewing block

i managed to edit the .php to list the listings vertically on mobile.
Any way i can adjust and crop the images natively and force the dispalay to be 1:1

Hi,

Please navigate to WP Dashboard > Settings > Media > Landscape size (small) > set, for example, 400x400, if the picture is uploaded larger, then it will be cropped to a square.

thank you. and how could i edit the css to include a drop shadow to differentiate the featured listing from the rest more clearly

Hi,

You can add shadow by using these CSS classes .hp-listing–view-block.hp-listing–featured (How to add custom code snippets - HivePress Help Center).
