Crop Featured Image from Top?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

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?

 

Thanks

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.

      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.

      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 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
