Support » Plugin: Crop-Thumbnails » Image Cropped But Cannot Add To Post & Cannot Crop Featured Image

  • Resolved Denis Lam


    I used the Simple Image Sizes plugin to create a custom thumb dimension. Now I want to use Crop-Thumbnails to crop thumbs for this custom dimension.

    I discovered two problems…

    #1 I’m able to crop an image by clicking “Crop Thumbnails” above my WP post area. I know I cropped it because after I saved the crop, that cropped image shows up in the Crop Thumbnails windows. Now I want to insert the picture into my post so I click “Add Media” and add the picture… I select the specific thumbnail dimension I cropped. But the image displayed is DIFFERENT than the one I just cropped! The inserted image is the default one that shows when thumbs are regenerated- it isn’t cropped how I want it. The only workaround is I copy the URL of the cropped image in the Crop Thumb windows and manually insert it. Any ideas?

    #2 I want to crop my featured image to show my custom dimension thumb. I click on Crop Featured Image button. I crop and save the image for a . It shows up properly cropped in the Crop Thumbs window but does not replace the large featured image. I don’t see any drop down menu anywhere for me to select my custom thumb as a featured image. Any suggestions how to get the cropped featured image I want used?

    Hi @asalounge,
    sorry, i had not much time the last weeks.

    hi @spiffyd, if you do not have a solution for your problem, here are some hints:
    to #1: sounds like the your browser has cached the image. If you had viewed your image on the site before, your browser has cached the image. Go tell them to reload the fresh image from the server by hitting “F5”.

    to #2: If you speaking about the image in the “featured image box” of your Backend it will not change at this position. You cant select a spezific image-size in this box. The featured Image Box is to generall tell WordPress WHAT image to use, BUT which size (image-size). The size is defined in your theme.
