[resolved] How to use thumbnails instead of full images? (3 posts)

    The images used for thumbnails are full-sized images, that get resized.
    This is killing for PageSpeed, and delivers red markers.

    How can I adjust the core coding such that YARPP uses the thumbnails that are built inside WordPress instead of taking the full-sizes images?

    Thanks a million!!!

    I just checked: because of this strange way of using full-sized images instead of the existing WP-thumbnails, my loss in PageSpeed ranking is down from 96 to 83, for the pages on which I use YARPP...

    High price to pay...!

    Please make sure you (a) set the optimized thumbnail size using add_image_size( 'yarpp-thumbnail', $width, $height, true ); and (b) ran Regenerate Thumbnails (or similar) to make sure correctly-sized thumbnails are created for each post.

    These issues are addressed in the FAQ.
