Featured Image in Single Post

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I love the new DMS 2.0. Great job.

 

I especially like the new, large featured image that appears on single post pages, but I am wondering how we can change the crop options so that it doesn't cut off people's heads in a portrait-oriented photo, as in here:

Initially, I thought DMS was using a custom Wordpress thumbnail size to generate that image. If that were the case, there are many plugins that can force cropping from the top or allow me to resize the thumbnail myself, but after further investigation, it seems as though DMS is rendering this image a different way.

 

How can we change how this image is cropped?

 

Thank you

Could we have a link to your site so we can see how this is happening for you? 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

I too am having some trouble with this autocropping of the featured image in a post, but I don't see a way to fix it.  The images load perfectly in the masonic gallery, but then in tne posts, it keep cuting people's heads off.

Any help is appreciated!

 

Thanks,

sethoof switch from landscape-thumb to something like large thumb, big thumb, full thumb under Global loop settings  for the WP content/loop


Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

      I'm building a product catalog site. The featured image is set correctly, but the woocommerce placeholder image is displaying instead. If I click on the placeholder image, the featured image appears, and the featured image works fine as a thumbnail.
      Please view the site here: http://www.directmat.net/product/power-lock-logo-mat/
      Note: I deleted the placeholder image via FTP to see if that would inspire Quick Shop to look for the featured image. No such luck. Please help!

      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.
