Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Pods template not outputting thumbnails correctly

  • Resolved Millionleaves

    I have an issue with a Pods template. I have included an image field in the template in the format:

    {@post_thumbnail.logo-wide}

    where logo-wide is the name of a thumbnail size.

    The problem is that when the image is displayed, the full size image is rendered and then scaled to the size of the thumbnail, rather than outputting the thumbnail itself, e.g.

    Is this how it is supposed to work?

    Hi @millionleaves

    That should work as you’ve posted, assuming the image size is correct.
    If you so this using PHP, how is it rendered then?

    I am using a Pods Template and then outputting the Pods template via Beaver Themer via a custom layout in a BB grid module. So, no PHP involved. I could go that route if necessary.

    As a test, I tried adding the magic tag for the field directly to the Themer layout:

    [wpbb post:featured_image size=’logo-wide’]

    I get the same result – the image is scaled to the correct size defined for the logo-wide thumbnail rather than using the logo-wide thumbnail. I have confirmed that the appropriate thumbnail exists in the file system.

    It feels like this may be a bug/oversight somewhere between Pods, Beaver Themer, and the Pods Beaver Themer integration plugin. But I’m hoping it’s just that I’m something wrong!

    Hi @millionleaves

    To be sure this is a Pods bug, please disable Pods and check if that BB shortcode still behaves the same.
    I’m starting to think this is a WP core issue since I believe both plugins simply use the WP core functions to fetch and render images.

    Hi @keraweb

    OK. Looks like the issue could be with how Beaver Builder is interpreting the Pods template.

    Most of the CPTs created by Pods are output using a Pods template in a Beaver Builder grid module. The thumbnails are not being output correctly when I do this.

    For one CPT, I have created a custom shortcode in PHP instead of a Pods template. The shortcode is placed in a Beaver Builder text module. The thumbnail size is displayed correctly.

    I’ll follow up with Beaver Builder support as well as the Pods Beaver Themer Add-On plugin developer.

    Hi @millionleaves

    Ok great, we’ll close this in the meantime, if there is anything we should fix in Pods core, let us know!

    @keraweb I found the issue. I was using the PowerPack Custom Grid module. Seems this module doesn’t output the thumbnails. I switched to the PowerPack Content Grid which does.

    Thanks for your help.
