    Hi all, I want to show the medium image on the single event page rather than the cropped thumbnail, I've tried using:

    $medium = wp_get_attachment_image_src($picture->ID, 'medium', false);

    to get the URL and other variations but it just returns blank!

    Any ideas?

    Cheers!

    Hey there epixmedia. Thanks for the note here; we should be able to help you out here, but can you clarify what exactly you're trying to do? When you say "medium image," you mean the mid-size offering WP presents upon uploading an image? And are you adding this via the "featured image" functionality, or just dropping it into a post's entry body?

    Let me know your thoughts here and we can try to guide you appropriately.

    Hi Rob, yes I want to use the medium image already created and stored when the image was uploaded.

    I'm also adding the image as a featured image, its then automatically displayed in the post (using the thumbnail code that's in the template). I want to change this thumbnail code to display the medium image.

    Cheers :)

    Hey there epixmedia. Thanks for the follow-up; we generally only have the bandwidth to hit the forum here at WordPress.org once a week or so....my apologies for taking until now to get back to you. (We do provide daily & generally more comprehensive support for PRO users at the tri.be forums, if you ever find yourself in need of a quick turnaround).

    But as for this issue....we should certainly be able to point you in the right direction. The specific question is outside my area of expertise so I have asked a member of our dev team to take a look when they hit the forums this afternoon. Stay tuned and my apologies again for the delay thus far.

    Thanks Rob, I'll await their feedback!

    I should be upgrading to the pro version later in the year as we may need to write a module to work with your system!

    Hey epixmedia,

    You may not be getting anything because you are trying to get a picture with an ID that has not been set ($picture->ID) - where is $picture being populated? If it's not being assigned to the current event ID, then it won't work... So if you've got this in a custom loop you'll need to make sure that $picture is the array of objects being returned for the query. Which it won't be by default. Try $event->ID instead.

    By default the single event template uses the_post_thumbnail() to display the featured image for an event. If you look at the codex for: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_post_thumbnail - you'll see that you can pass size parameters to that function to determine what size image is used. So you should be able to use the following:

    the_post_thumbnail('medium');

    Does that help?

    also, make sure if you are editing the single event template that you make a copy of /wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/views/single.php and place in an 'events' folder to preserve your changes.

    Thanks!

    the_post_thumbnail('medium');

    Worked a treat, surprised I didn't spot this on my initial hunt!

    My files are already copied to my theme folder so no worries there :)
