postpins and image scaling

Recommended Posts

suzyo

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 :-)

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

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?

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.

Go to the store inside your admin and check which version of postpins you're using. You may need to update.

To update go to Pagelines>dashboard>updates

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

      I recently installed PostPins and it was working great until I accidentally deleted the section. When I added the section back onto the page (without changing a thing), the posts were separated by a significant gap. I tried removing my custom CSS, reinstalling the plugin, deactivating other plugins, refreshing the cache -- but nothing seems to work. Unfortunately, I was also unable to revert to the published site (although I had not published the the new layout). 
      The section is currently working on the published site (insatiablecuriosities.com). The mis-stacked section is shown in the attached image.

      When PostPins is active on a page, I get PHP warnings:
      Notice: Undefined property: PostPins::$icon in /www/wp-content/plugins/postpins/postpins.php on line 318 Notice: register_metatab is deprecated since version 1.2 of PageLines DMS! Use section_opts() instead. in /www/wp-content/themes/dms/dms/includes/deprecated.php on line 280
      It looks like PostPins is still using section_optionator() and should be using section_opts()
