Crop Featured Image from Top?

Recommended Posts




I notice that DMS adds several custom image sizes, such as aspect-thumb and landscape-thumb. One of these is used for the featured image on single post pages.


Is there a way to force that image to crop from the top center rather than center center? I've tried several plugins, like Crop from the Top and Simple Image Sizes, but they don't seem to work with WP 3.9, which supposedly has made it easier to implement this on the theme level.


Can someone provide some code that we can stick in functions.php of our DMS child theme?

Hi there, I've not come across this before but this css example might be able to help you - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11552380/how-to-automatically-crop-and-center-an-image

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.

      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?

      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,

      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.
