Guy,

What is the default featured image size and is there an option to change it to a custom one?

HI,

 

Firstly, I apologise, for some reason your post got lost in the topic que, not entirely sure how that happened. So I am looking into that for you.

 

There is no default featured image size, you're free to upload whatever sized image you like, although I wouldn't upload one that as huge dimensions. Then what happens is that the image will be resized.

 

If you can provide a link to the site in question and what size you're after we may be able to assist you. If you want a custom size, then you will likely need to use custom CSS.

I understand. I'm sure you've had many other requests going on.

 

Could I have the custom CSS code to have the images show at 1920x803px ?

Why would you want a posts featured image to be that size, that is simply far too large for a post image, especially if you want these images on multiple posts. By doing this, your blog page will have increase load unless you use a cdn and have VPS/dedicated server.

 

I wouldn't recommend customizing your posts featured images to be this large nor is this something we can provide support for.

I do have a VPS server and the size is for retina and non-retina devices. I simply use this aspect ratio. So can you suggest the code or?

If you enable Legacy mode on the WP-Content/PostLoop section, you can select the post thumbnail option On Top, this uses the full sized image instead of a thumbnail. However, it won't have those dimensions and I am not even sure why you would want a thumbnail that large to begin with ?

 

If you want a post featured image to appear on screen as 1920x803px then it is likely going to take up most of the screen real estate, especially on users who do not have retina displays or large monitors. So it simply isn't practical.

If you want to go ahead and do this, then you will need to use extensive CSS, this isn't something we provide. As you will likely need to override quite a few default styling to have an image this size. The best thing to do, is for you to inspect the elements yourself using Chromes DevTools and make the alternations there and see how it works.

 

However, I honestly wouldn't recommend attempting to make your posts thumbnails 1920x803px in dimension.

      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 a big fan of Pagelines, and have been for years.
      I'm trying to control the size of video embeds and having some difficulty. I see that I can just paste the Vimeo video URL into the post and an embed widget will automatically appear, which is great. But the embed box created is much taller that the video (689 x 1000 pixels) so the content sits in the middle of a tall black box, which looks awkward.
      I tried using the full iFrame embed code from Vimeo, which solved the disproportionate embed frame size (or aspect ratio) issue, but despite specifying the dimensions I want (690 x 388), the videos displayed on the post are sized at 300 x 150 pixels.
      I can't work out how to change either.
      I'm using the latest version of Pagelines Framework (Pro) with the Agency them.
      Any help or advice very much appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Dougal

      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
