Flipper not sizing images correctly

Question

Posted · Report post

I've applied a FLIPPER section to the page, and the image of the post is very large even though I've selected "Thumbnail" as my image size.  When more post are added to the FLIPPER, the images start getting smaller.  However there might be times where I want just one image and I don't want them to be large and pixilated.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Jason

If you have flipper in a column it's going to try and size to the column.  I suppose you could try targeting the component/section or just the image class and try to restrain it.  Flipper is going to pull from your posts or pages so I'd think typically you would end up with more than one image/post.

Gotcha. It appears the selection for the image size, is just to tell it which version of the image to use, but doesn't affect the size output. So if you choose thumbnail it's going to be pixilated when there is only one.

The Flipper section has thumbnail control option where you can select what type of image to use - https://cloudup.com/cO4tHlkgsbO

Yes it has thumbnail support but selecting a thumbnail size doesn't reduce the size of the image if there is only one post.

As jmad pointed out the image takes the size of the column.

If you want to only display one post and do not wish it to be full width, then simply resize the Flipper section using the width controls. If you want to only display one image, then why use the Flipper section to begin with, just use the MediaBox section.

I'm using FLIPPER with a custom post type. It's showing "classes offered" on each teachers page. So sometimes there might be one or two offered and was hoping that could happen dynamically without having to manually adjust a column or just use a media box.

But does seem possible with this version. Maybe this is something that can be tweaked in future releases.
