[resolved] Featured Images size issue (5 posts)

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the amazing theme! I love it! I do need a bit of help though if possible.

    I have altered the default image sizes in the functions.php of my child theme

    add_image_size( 'thumb-large', 720, 440, true );

    This seems to work fine on some older posts but I have just added a new post with a featured image to appear on my home page (blog) and it's cropping it back to 340 height.

    I have checked the uploaded image which looks fine and I have tried to regenerate thumbnails but this hasn't had an effect.

    I have checked the source code to see if a specific css was affecting it but can't see how, and the image link states 340 also even though I haven't specified this.

    I may be missing something obvious but I can't figure it out...

    Can you point me int he right direction on how to fix this, and how to stop it happening in the future?

    Thanks
    Emma

    Hi Emma!

    If you've changed the size in the functions.php of your child theme correctly, it should work.

    Some possibilities:
    - Make sure the child theme is the active theme, not the parent one
    - Has the child theme function somehow been edited back to default values?
    - Does the functions file of the child theme have any error that may break the alx_setup function?
    - Are you editing the size for thumb-medium as well? The large one shows up in the featured spot, the medium one shows for all the others - so that would need to be edited too.

    Since you had it working, and now it suddently does not, it sounds like you may have made some code change that broke/changed the stuff back to default.

    Thanks for such a quick response Alexander.

    I have checked the points you made and can't see anything wrong. Currently I only have thumbnail image sizes in my functions.php file, as below

    if ( ! function_exists( 'alx_setup' ) ) {

    // Thumbnail sizes
    add_image_size( 'thumb-small', 160, 160, true );
    add_image_size( 'thumb-medium', 520, 318, true );
    add_image_size( 'thumb-large', 720, 440, true );

    }

    Is there any way of checking how I could have broken something else or shall I just remove child files to see if I can find the offender?

    Thanks

    You would need to include the whole alx_setup function in the child theme, with your edits, like this:

    function alx_setup() {
    	// Enable automatic feed links
    	add_theme_support( 'automatic-feed-links' );
    
    	// Enable featured image
    	add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
    
    	// Enable post format support
    	add_theme_support( 'post-formats', array( 'audio', 'aside', 'chat', 'gallery', 'image', 'link', 'quote', 'status', 'video' ) );
    
    	// Declare WooCommerce support
    	add_theme_support( 'woocommerce' );
    
    	// Thumbnail sizes
    	add_image_size( 'thumb-small', 160, 160, true );
    	add_image_size( 'thumb-medium', 520, 318, true );
    	add_image_size( 'thumb-large', 720, 440, true );
    
    	// Custom menu areas
    	register_nav_menus( array(
    		'topbar' => 'Topbar',
    		'header' => 'Header',
    		'footer' => 'Footer',
    	) );
    }

    Thanks - that has worked now after amending the functions.php and regenerating thumbnails :)
