Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » Dynamic images with quite confusing names

  • Hi everybody,

    I’ve just updatet my WordPress to 3.9.1 and updated NextGen Gallery to the latest version, too.

    I’ve got a little problem with the dynamic generated images. For my article overview I’m using a custom image size. I’ve defined this one in the functions.php of my own theme like this:

    add_image_size('news-small', 190, 105, true);

    Before the update, WordPress generates these special size images and everything was fine. Now NextGen does this job. But not that good as I wanted. First, the images are not cropped to this size. They have formats like 190×50 etc.

    Second, the image name is quite horrible like this:

    That’s not a nice name.

    How can I setup, that WordPress creates these custom thumbnail sizes or that NextGen uses a bit better image names and cropped these images?

    Thank you for your help!

  • Update: NextGen creates fine custom thumbnails when I upload a new image. But how can I regenerate the existing images, so that they’re not in the ‘dynamics’ folder with this cryptic name?

    I tried to regenerate the thumbnails in the gallery but it does not solve the problem.

    @raisis – The “dynamic” folder is used for images (think copies) that are not the same size as the default thumbnails / originals. They are also generally created for each specific gallery that you are using them in, especially if you are making size changes via the IGW when you insert them.

    These images are also not expected to be used outside of NextGEN Gallery displays.

    – Cais.
