Support » Theme: Twenty Sixteen » Featured Image Size on a Page

  • Resolved Design Locker

    (@design-locker)


    Hello,

    I am adding a featured image to “Pages” and uploading the images as the size I want but WordPress is automatically resizing them to a max-width of 1200 pixels. My images are wider (1630px) and I would like to keep the quality.

    Does anyone know of a way to overwrite this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    TwentySixteen sets the thumbnail size as having a 1200px width and 9999px height, you need to reconfigure this in your child theme’s functions.php with the following

    function noe_thumbnail() {
    	set_post_thumbnail_size( 1700, 9999 );
    }
    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'noe_thumbnail', 11 );

    This way, the thumbnail size can be up to 1700px wide, you can adjust the 1700 value accordingly to your needs. You may also need to redo your featured image. if you have a lot of them, you can use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin:

    Jarret,

    Thank you so much for your help, your recommendation worked perfectly.

    I had tried so many variations of the same code and could not get it working.

    Thanks again, really appreciate it.
