postpins and image scaling


Question

Posted · Report post

okay, so attached is a  copy of results from google speed test w and w/out postpins.

 

here: http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/pagelines-postpins/

 

on the page linked above you will see the following convo:

 

QUESTION: "Holy cow - this plugin serve scaled images - NOT thumbnail size NOT Medium size BUT Full resolution so I have a page that loads a few MB now?

Page load time: 3.53s

Total page size: 9.03MB

Total number of requests: 46

Websites worked like this 12 years ago - set it to use thumbnails as default or Medium size at leats (sic)."

 

RESPONSE: "Thanks for informing us this issue has been resolved."

 

This was 6 months ago. I got the plugin 6 weeks ago. The images that various speed tests have cited are ALL of the images that are used by postpins vis a vis the attached.

 

So, no, the issue has not been resolved. There is a problem w jquery strings, and also w image scaling. This renders postpins virtually worthless for a large dynamic site. Please advise.

 

p.s.--i love you guys and pagelines rocks!

Hi Suzy, there was a post in between those two, the client said

 

"I've figured this out - but have to re-assign new thumbnails for featured images."

 

So if you set the featured image at the new resolution, it will pull through from there :-)

Hi James! We have to stop meeting like this!

 

Okay, I get that, BUT...all kinds of doohickeys use the featured image thumbnail. grrrrrrrrrrr.

 

I found THIS on another post, should I go ahead and use it? Is it better? Because I'm going to be using jillions of images.

I thought postpins was updated to use the smaller thumbnails?

Apparently not, though my research  said that it had been. But, nope. Sure would be nice. : - )

Hey Suzy,

 

I checked back on the product info after seeing Simon's comment on the update. If you look in the meta settings for postpins, there's now a drop down option to be able to select where the images are pulled from. Screenshot attached :-)

If you want to edit the dimensions of any of these sizes you can do so in Settings>media from the Wp admin area.

Thanks, James, that worked. Why is everything so utterly disconnected? This cost me 4 hours.

Glad that worked for you Suzy :-)

 

Obviously it takes us time to diagnose whats happening and look into a solution for you. But now we know the cause now and you now know you can update the plus plugins through the dashboard :-)
