Post Pin Image Sizes?

Recommended Posts


I currently use anything boxes to display my photography portfolio as i like the way it gives you the option to set the maximum image attachment size, however to style these properly i need set a maximum height so my margins are all inline.

I really like how the post pin plugin styles your images when all displayed together and is how i want my portfolio to be displayed, however it does not let you set the maximum image attachement size, instead i think it creates a new thumbnail size of 600px max length/height. But theoretically i would want one at half this size, and could save maybe 1-2mb of loading time.

Is there anyway to set the maximum attachment size for the featured images used in post pins like anything boxes allows you to, or is there a way of changing the thumbnail size that post pins seems to generate? (I assume post pins generates this thumbnail as my media settings do not have the 600px dimensions in any of the sizes)

This is the anything boxes portfolio display http://www.oliverwinter.com.au/landscape-photograhy/

This is how i want the portfolio to look like with post pins http://www.oliverwinter.com.au/portfolio/

PostPins doesn't use a thumbnail instead it uses the full size image. The ability to use a thumbnail and set the max image size has been requested and this enhancement is on a our tracker.

Oh ok, well until then i came up with a solution which was quite an easy fix in the end, i just modified the section.php file of the post pins:

From this

if(has_post_thumbnail($p->ID) && get_the_post_thumbnail($p->ID) != ''){

$thumb = get_the_post_thumbnail($p->ID);.........

To this

if(has_post_thumbnail($p->ID) && get_the_post_thumbnail($p->ID) != ''){

$thumb = get_the_post_thumbnail($p->ID, 'medium');

So now the medium thumbnail image is shown in the post pins, which seems to have done the trick for the moment.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
      Best regards,

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:

      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
