Hey there!

 

I'm wondering how I should link my images that I have placed in the "images" folder inside the dms theme...As it stands, I've been using "images/image-name.png" 

 

But, when I navigate off of the home page, the images no longer work. I'm wondering if you have a solution for this? 

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

When you add an image to the Media Library via Dashboard > Media > Add New, you'll see a link that says "Edit".  Click it. You can also access this by looking at the Media > Library and selecting any image, then clicking "Edit".

 

On the right side, you'll see the URL for the image. To add the images, use the full URL. If you're adding them via the Textbox, make sure to use the full HTML for images <img src="the-full-URL">.

 

Images you're adding to use in your DMS site should be in the Media Library, not in the images folder.  That would explain why they're not showing under some circumstances.

 

Let us know if you need additional assistance.

      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.

      Thx

      Hi,
      I am using pl-section-journey and hiding most of the images. When running the page via google speed insights, it tells to optimize all the images that are in this plugins default. (e.g. https://queue-it.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-journey/images/drawer-5.jpg ) Like this one that is not visible on the website, but is a part of the plugin and comes up in google insights.
      I've deleted all the images in the plugin, but they still seem to come up. Ref. this page: queue-it.com/features

      Hi guys,
      I have noticed that all thumbnails on www.michaelkummer.com are scaled down in CSS or HTML, rather than on the backend by Jetpack's Photon. See https://db.tt/vNJCn7Gh and https://db.tt/3ZpkHM7G. 
      Any idea why Pins sets the image width and height to something much larger than what's shown on the screen? Is there any way to fix this so that Photon can do a better job in rescaling the images on the backend before they are delivered to the browser?
      Thanks
      Michael

      Hi there!
      I'm trying to create a featured image for my new blog post. It has text in it, and when I add it as a featured image some of the text is cut off on the right.
      Could I get the ideal dimensions for featured images? Or, a way to customise the dimensions so that they are easier to fit in the way I need?
      Thank you kindly
      Nate
