2 issues after reinstalling

Recommended Posts

For some technical reasons, we had to reinstall everything from scratch but after the process, we started experiencing some issues related to theme and thumbnails. 

 

1- The Apple Style menu seems so thick. It used to be thinner than what it seems now.

 

This is the screenshot I copied from Google cache...

Not it looks like this:

Even the outline is different. 

 

 

The second question is about the featured images shown incorrectly. 

Previously, when we define a featured image and then publish the article, we could get a 150x150 pixel thumbnail but this time we only get a resized of the featured image. 

 

Our features images have a size of 1070 px to 250 px. 

 

When the images were resized, we used to have a portion of the image at a size of 150x150 px.

The difference can be seen in the screenshot...

 

There are 4 posts you can see. The last one is one of the old ones and the other three are the new posts. You can see the difference. I have checked the Wordpress settings from WP Admin >> Settings >> Media

 

and all the thumbnail settings are defined there....

Hi there,

 

Did you upgrade from a previous version of Iblog to a new one? There were changes between i blog pro 4 and 5 as they changed from a standalone theme to a child theme of the pagelines framework.

 

If not when you copied the theme across did you copy across any custom css you had entered previously?

 

Thumbnails are set by the settings in settings>media from the wp media area. However if you've had previous instructions in there the thumbnails do not automatically resize when the figures are changed for existing images. You have to use a plugin called  http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/ which forces the existing thumbnails to regenerate to the new size.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

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

Dear James,

 

Thanks for the instant reply. 

 

For reinstalling, I used brand new theme file from my store account. I downloaded both the theme and the Pro framework and just put them in their respective places on the web server. 

 

We never used iBlogPro 4 before because when we purchased the theme and the framework, it was not available. We started using v5 from the very beginning. 

 

So, I just copied the content of the ZIP file on the server, I think there will be no issues related to any missing CSS file, unless the ZIP file misses it :)

 

 

For the thumbnails issue, what kind of previous instructions there can be? In that section, you can only specify the pixel values of thumbnails to be generated.

Hi,

 

IBlogPro 5 received an update that made changes to the navigation style, this is why the navigation now appears larger than it previously did. If you wish to have the previously style, you will need to use custom CSS and most likely reduce the padding on the menus items.

 

There appears to be an issue with your thumbnails, I recommend you check your thumbnail settings in Wordpress Admin Dashboard > Settings > Media > Thumbnail Size. Then remove your Posts Feature Image, delete the image from your media library and then upload your image again as a Feature image in your post. Save the post and then refresh your site and see if this resolves the issue.

 

If that doesn't resolve the issue, disable all non-PageLines plugins and then remove your Posts Feature Image, delete the image from your media library and then upload your image again as a Feature image in your post. Save the post and then refresh your site and see if this resolves the issue.

 

I have just saved your image and then added it to one of my iBlogPro test sites posts, and the thumbnail is the correct size.

Enable PageLines Debug mode please - PageLines > Site Options > Advanced.

Once enabled, reply here and we can investigate further.

You still have 11 plugins installed and active and only one of these is related to PageLines. I suggest disabling all non-PageLines plugins and then repeat the process of removing your feature image, deleting it from your library so this image is no longer available. Then upload the image again, add it to your post and see if this has resolved your issue.

 

As you can see I am unable to recreate your issue - http://cl.ly/image/3x3Q0A333v0K

The thing is... we were able to use the system without any problems until we upgraded the framework and the theme. 

 

anyways...

 

 

the result is still the same even though I turned off all the plugins...

OK, well there is something wrong with either your Wordpress media settings, you have custom code effecting your thumbnails or its related to your server.

Can you test this on another installation of Wordpress ?

I was just trying to solve the issues by looking a bit deeper by checking the differences between the SQL inputs of old posts where I do not have any issues related to thumbnails and new posts that I have problems.

 

Below is the difference in the database entry:

 

 

This one is taken from a post where I do not have thumbnail problems:

 

 

a:6:{s:5:"width";s:4:"1070";s:6:"height";s:3:"250";s:14:"hwstring_small";s:23:"height='29' width='128'";s:4:"file";s:20:"2012/11/iTunes11.png";s:5:"sizes";a:4:{s:9:"thumbnail";a:3:{s:4:"file";s:20:"iTunes11-150x150.png";s:5:"width";s:3:"150";s:6:"height";s:3:"150";}s:6:"medium";a:3:{s:4:"file";s:19:"iTunes11-300x70.png";s:5:"width";s:3:"300";s:6:"height";s:2:"70";}s:5:"large";a:3:{s:4:"file";s:21:"iTunes11-1024x239.png";s:5:"width";s:4:"1024";s:6:"height";s:3:"239";}s:21:"wptouch-new-thumbnail";a:3:{s:4:"file";s:18:"iTunes11-92x92.png";s:5:"width";s:2:"92";s:6:"height";s:2:"92";}}s:10:"image_meta";a:10:{s:8:"aperture";s:1:"0";s:6:"credit";s:0:"";s:6:"camera";s:0:"";s:7:"caption";s:0:"";s:17:"created_timestamp";s:1:"0";s:9:"copyright";s:0:"";s:12:"focal_length";s:1:"0";s:3:"iso";s:1:"0";s:13:"shutter_speed";s:1:"0";s:5:"title";s:0:"";}}
 
 
This one is the new one and I have problems:
 
a:4:{s:5:"width";i:1070;s:6:"height";i:250;s:4:"file";s:22:"2013/03/albumkapak.png";s:10:"image_meta";a:10:{s:8:"aperture";i:0;s:6:"credit";s:0:"";s:6:"camera";s:0:"";s:7:"caption";s:0:"";s:17:"created_timestamp";i:0;s:9:"copyright";s:0:"";s:12:"focal_length";i:0;s:3:"iso";i:0;s:13:"shutter_speed";i:0;s:5:"title";s:0:"";}}

Your post thumbnails can be changed/controlled via plugins, so as far as I am aware, viewing the SQL is redundant. As I mentioned above I am unable to recreate your issue on several test sites. I even used your own image and provided a link to the image being used.

 

Therefore, I recommend you attempt the same thing on a fresh installation of Wordpress minus third party plugins or code and see if the problem persists.

I have just created a new post on a fresh installation of Wordpress using iBlogPro 5. Below is what I am seeing:

http://cl.ly/image/1Q3l1R110U0i

Therefore, you must have different thumbnail setting, I have copied the HTML on my test site and your sites for the Thumbnail, I have removed the URLs for easier readability.

 

Here is what I have in my HTML

 

https://gist.github.com/anonymous/5195319

 

Here is what you have in your HTML

 

https://gist.github.com/anonymous/5195322

 

As you can see your image height is set to 35, this means for some reason your Feature image is not using the generated thumbnail. As far as I am aware this is not an issue with PageLines but Wordpress.

 

Therefore, so we can rule this out, please switch to Twenty Eleven or Twenty Twelve and inform us when you have done so.

Hi there, have you ever changed the thumbnail sizes in the past? Cause if you did and then they were changed back the thumbnails don't go back to normal when you set them back to 150x150, you have to use a plugin to regenerate the sizes.

 

Like - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

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

Dear James,

 

I have never changed the thumbnail sizes in the past. Even, when I have a clean WP installation, the case has not changed....

 

I will use the plugin but for how long? :)

 

We were not using a plugin to regenerate the thumbnail sizes, right after we started using the new WP and the new theme as well as the new Framework, it started not functioning....

But this plugin resizes all the pictures in the media gallery... This is not what I really wanted... :(

Resizing all images to create a 150x150 thumbnail only increases the server load and we do not want that...

Can you switch themes to Twenty Twelve, then remove the one of your posts feature images, save the post. Then go to Media Library and remove that image. Then go to back to the post and add the feature thumb image again and save. Once you have done this, can you inform us so we can take a look.

      Not sure exactly what is causing the issue. For some reason, why you view my site on mobile, the menu does not show up. It will pop up, but it is black. You can check it out here: http://dev.caryfbc.org. I'm also attaching a screenshot where I shrunk my browser down. Any suggestions?

      Hi there, 
      I'm looking to use the Powerloop option to display my blog posts on our homepage – however, I only want the title (in a smaller font size) and the Read More button to display. Is there a way to do this? We had achieved it on a previous version, but I'm not figuring it out now (and don't know if standard settings have changed since then). Our homepage is www.frakture.com . Forgive me if there is a super simple solution! ;-) 
      Thanks in advance!

      I think I may have installed pagelines pro incorrectly, and then used features incorrectly. I installed first platforms framework theme and then the child, thinking I could do setup for child later. I tried to set up a background image, and tried custom css feature in pagelines dashboard. I had mistakes in my css, and just thought that if I deleted the info in the css custom feature in pagelines dashboard that the new information would overwrite the old info. The background image didn't respond at all, probably because I didn't have the child directory renamed. I then tried to use the LSS plugin to create css and added more css, possibly, somewhere -sigh-. I never did change the background image and get it placed properly. I used a workaround and in nested containers I placed a background image which worked well enough, so I moved on to try to create my nav bar/ menu bar. When I go to the Menus panel, there is NO area where I can place a menu on a page. I have read and reread and re- re- reread the instructions for placing a menu. I've used the pagelines editor to place a menu, however only HOME shows up. I've been at this for many hours. I've since uninstalled all of my pagelines items and reinstalled, thinking that it would restore all my changes to default, but no, it is still all there, with all my unresolved issues. I am completely at a loss as to what to do next.

      How to make the Impulse menu sticky?
      Here is a site that seems like it is doing just that: http://www.manhattanperiodontist.com/
      Here is the site I am working on: http://boeriu.digitalvector.com/ 
      I have no problem showing the menu at the bottom, but when scrolling up it does not stick.  I tried to add Nav Pro menu but when I do that, it just shows on top and no matter what I try is not working as I want it to.
      Any suggestions?

      1) Toggle menu on mobile devices does not work properly, combination Chrome 56.0.2924.87 with Android 6.0.1

      2) Mobile / Default Menu > Set the primary/default navigation for your site. This will be used in the pop out mobile menu and as the default in navigation sections. Does not work.
