Thanks

Hi Antony,

 

Special Recent Posts sets the thumbnail size to a specific set of dimensions.  You can adjust using CSS and an inspector to find the proper code.  See this for information about how to do it:  http://support.pagelines.me/docs/customization/custom-css/

 

WordPress too, sets image sizes for display of thumbnails.  If you add a 600px by 600px image to a post as featured image, then WordPress will use whatever size you have set in Dashboard > Settings > Media.   Should you change those dimensions, you will need a plugin to rebuild the database to reflect the new size.

It's not that, I have Wordpress media sizes set, setup the plugin and still the thumbnails are being scaled... Even without the plugin in excerpts in magazine mode. Right clicking and looking at image info says they are the corrects size but also says they are scaled to x px 'x' y px

Are they being scaled to a factor of the original to fit in a specific box size somehow?

Hello, what page on the site is the special recent posts on? I've looked through the links but can only see the main blog roll on the site you have set in the private profile link.

 

Special recent posts has its own option menu for thumbnails sizes as far as I'm aware


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.

Right click the thumbnails under the 'projects' link and 'view image info' .... scaled from 150x150 to 40x40

Antony,

 

Please answer the questions we have so that we can try to help.  James asked you for a link to a page on your site where Special Recent Posts is displayed.

 

Also, I think you misunderstood me.   Again, if you go to a post in WordPress and add a featured image of 600px by 600px, and the WordPress settings at Dashboard > Settings > Media say your post thumbnails should be 150px x 150px, then all you will see is 150px x 150px for normal blog listings.  Magazine mode makes them even smaller to make the size of the thumbnail fit the smaller magazine clip size.  To fix that, you'd have to copy and edit the postloop section to a child or Base Theme.

 

If you want to change Special Recent Posts, you must do two things.  1. You change the settings in Special Recent Posts.  and 2. You must find the CSS element for post thumbnails used by Special Recent Posts and customize the CSS for your purposes.

      Hello,
      I apologize for the trivial question, but I can not deal with it. How do I turn off the display of a distinctive image on the page? (I have to add it because I use plugins that use it), but as I display the page, I do not want it to be visible (and appears above the subject.).
      Probably a cliché but I can not deal with it. Therefore, a request for help.
      Regards
      RKA

      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,
