Support » Fixing WordPress » My theme is making 7 versions of every image I upload

  • I’m using the pocono theme for a client and I’m confused as to why it’s creating 7 versions of the pictures she’s uploading. This is absurd. Here’s the versions it’s making:

    Full
    Large
    Medium_large
    Pocono-single-posts
    Post-thumbnail
    Medium
    Thumbnail

    With all these resized versions, each post she makes has about 1MB worth of thumbnails. How do I stop this?

    [Edit] in functions.php I see this – which of these can I eliminate?

    // Enable support for Post Thumbnails on posts and pages.
    		add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
    
    		// Set detfault Post Thumbnail size.
    		set_post_thumbnail_size( 800, 500, true );
    
    		// Add Single Posts Image Size.
    		add_image_size( 'pocono-single-posts', 1200, 550, true );

    Thanks!

    To rule out any theme-specific issue, try switching to the unedited default Theme (Twenty Sixteen, etc.) for a moment using the WP dashboard

    See my edited post. This theme has 7 image variants and I don’t think they are all needed.
