Support » Plugin: Crop-Thumbnails » Featured image not reflecting the cropped version

  • Resolved frogdesk


    Hi there! Love the functionality of your plugin, but it’s not working in my theme, I still see the uncropped version. In my theme I use

    <?php echo (($feat_image[0]))?>

    to get the URL of the featured image. I have also tried

    <?php echo get_the_post_thumbnail_url(null,'full'); ?>

    Which produces the same output. Should I be using something else?

    I have already tried hard refreshing the page and the image itself.

    Thank you very much

    you have to use get_the_post_thumbnail_url – but not with “full”. The image-size “full” is not a cropped image size. Any other image size that is visible in the crop-thumbnails-editor-dialog will be possible.

    For example the “thumbnail” size.

    Tried using ‘medium’, still no dice.

    Do you want to kidding me? Is the “medium” size available in the in the crop-thumbnails-editor-dialog? No, its not – cause its also no cropped image size.

    The plugin can be used to adjust the cropped image sizes of your theme – not the regular sizes. “full”, “large” and “medium” are regular image size. What image sizes are cropped depends on your theme and the installed plugins. You may add a new cropped Image-size with add_image_size.

    Per default the “thumbnail” image-size is always cropped.

    Sorry, but I have no idea what “crop-thumbnails-editor-dialog” is and Google yields no results (literally not even one).

    Using the “thumbnail” image size for the featured image doesn’t make much sense to me. The featured image is a huge, big image. Thumbnails are tiny.

    Ok, but you used the crop functionality once didnt you? So the crop-thumbnails-editor-dialog is the dialog where you cropped your images.

    Ah ok, awesome. So in order for a theme to support using this plugin to modify the featured image, it must add its own custom image size and use that for the featured image.

    I think it would be helpful if you added this information to the main plugin page (or maybe it’s there but I didn’t understand how it was worded).

    Thanks a bunch for your quick replies, and for the plugin. Appreciate it 🙂
