Image Size

Recommended Posts

washhousedesign

I'm trying to get 'Features' to pull in the 'large' image rather than the original file size that is uploaded , this will avoid the client having to create the correct file size before upload.

So for instance:

A client uploads an image that is 1600px wide, currently 'Features' pulls that image and just scales it down rather than re-sizing it. If I set the large image size in the Wordpress media settings to 960px wordpress will create that image size on upload.

Can Pagelines 'Features' be told to use that image rather than the original? If you were building the template outside of Pagelines you would just call the relevant post_thumbnail size.

Cheers

If you need to upload an image in a specific size for the feature slider, it needs be resized in a graphic editing program first and then uploaded so that it's already the size you want. The features settings are a PL feature that operates separately from the WP media settings. There may be a way to integrate the two using code, but I'm not certain what that would be. A developer may have better insight about this.


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi

So in essence Pagelines requires the client to create the correct size for the images before uploading. Does this mean that all images are just scaled down versions of the original - surely this is a bit of a floor in the templating system as it means you have to trust the client to reduce file size prior to upload!

      I have added a Lax section on the footer of this site: http://www.ics-law.org.php72-38.lan3-1.websitetestlink.com/ but the background image is not displaying. When I first add the image it appears in the background, but then after saving and reloading it is gone even though the thumbnail indicates it's still there. Screenshot attached.
      Any suggestions?

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      Hello,
      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      Hey there,
       
      I am working on BentleyRolling.com. I used grams on MoonbodySoul.com and all the images are cropped to a square, whether they are square or 4:5 when posted on instagram, they still get cropped to a square. This looks way better than some being squares and some being 4:5. Did something change since I designed MoonBodySoul.com with Platform5? Can you help me crop all images to a square on BentleyRolling.com 
       
      All the best,

      How do I control the lightbox effect on the plugin "popthumbs"?  On mobile, it opens up much to small then when expanded it opens to large.  I would like to control the the lightbox to like 90% of the viewer window but I can't figure out how/where to control that.
      Site example

       
      Thx
