[Plugin: WordPress Popular Posts] How can I crop the displayed thumbnail? (3 posts)

    The plugin is awesome. My only problem is that the thumbnails vary on every post and it gets annoying when an image is vertically large. How can I fix the thumbnail height by cropping it when the popular posts are displayed in the side bar?

    Hi jpolen,

    The whole cropping thing is done automatically by WordPress as this plugin uses the Featured Post Thumbnail function to create the image. There's not much to do about it, sorry.

    Hi Hector,

    This is precisely the problem. The plugin is resizing the image maintining aspect ratio instead of cropping :/

    For example... here's the widget with thumbnail size limit 263x2000


    And this is the widget set to appear squared if it actually cropped 263x263


    See what I mean?
