Flick Slider - remove image auto crop & text link?

Recommended Posts

Barnaby Skinner

Hey all,

Been using Flick Slider in some of my website galleries, and have found that it auto-crops images uploaded via the plugin. Can we please have the option to disable auto-cropping? I prepare all my images offline, so when I upload them to what is effectively a gallery slideshow, I don't want them cropped again. For example, I upload a 1200px x 849px compressed JPG and it gets resized to 1200px x 750px. I can mitigate this by choosing to use an image directly from the WP library rather than upload through the plugin, and this then uses the original image, not an auto-cropped version. But, this takes too much time, and the WP library 'pop-up window' navigation is utter utter UTTER crap, and that makes me mad :) 

I can see the point of the auto-cropping, I just need to disable it :)

And another thing... If I add text to any item within Flick Slider, it applies link styling to it. I can see why, but all I want is to place some text under each image, and style the text, without it turning into a link. Can this be done?

This is my major issue with Flickslider.


I'd like to add text and maybe links on it, but I hate how it is displayed. Unfortunately I'm terrible with CSS and I'm not able to style it the way I like it.

Even if I knew how to style it, I actually wouldn't know where to add the code. D'oh!

Same here, I would like to see Flick not create a hover link when there isn't one.

I need to add a caption to each image so I have to upload an image but I can't appear to manipulate the height of this? Only the slider background.

      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.

      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
