    Just creating a new thread for this, even though it’s the same problem as this thread. I am wondering how do I resize the image in the bubble/circle to 360×360? With the 2.02 update there is some auto-resizing that doesn’t look good, so I was wondering if anyone knows how to make the image appear as /wp-content/uploads/2014/01/20140114-12345-360×360.jpg vs /wp-content/uploads/2014/01/20140114-12345.jpg? Hope that makes sense. Thanks!

  • Hi, anyone know how to resize the image in the circle back to 360×360? Thanks

    Are you sure resizing the image to that dimension will resolve this issue?

    Try adding this to your Child Theme functions.php file:

    add_image_size( 'home-post', 360, 360, false );

    Then try re-uploading the images with the problem
    – or use a plugin to do that http://wordpress.org/plugins/force-regenerate-thumbnails/

    If you look at the 3rd circle from the top, left on the theme’s demo website the image that it’s loading there isn’t actually 180px x 180px, it’s this big instead: http://spun-demo.calobeedoodles.com/files/2010/10/5076439455_b16900cfcc_b.jpg

    I don’t think Spun’s actually resizing anything

    Let’s see your website with the issue so that we can make clear that it’s not an issue with the dimensions of the images uploaded.

    Hi Andrew – thanks for taking another stab at this. I know for sure the issue has to do with the previous 360×360 size because I rolled back and saw that when I inspected the element. Sure – my site is here. Let me try to add that code to my child theme and see if that helps. Appreciate it.

    OK, so I tried that code, but I didn’t want to reupload or refresh the images. I am under the impression that the previous version somehow sized the images to 360×360 and in the new update it attempts to resize the original image somehow…I am probably not explaining it the right way…I could roll back to a previous version, have you inspect the picture elements and then roll forward with the latest version, but I am not sure if that would help you nail down the issue. Thanks!

    Can you use that plugin and regenerate your thumbnails? Or at least re-upload 1 image as a test?

    Spun still resizes the images to 360×360 for me, so the ambiguity is not exactly why Spun doesn’t resize images, but why some people’s images aren’t being resized.

    I am still a little leery of updating all of my thumbnails if they are already there…I don’t understand why regenerating the thumbnails would solve the issue when I know the thumbnails are still there in the uploads folders. I guess I just want to know how to force SPUN to use the -360×360.jpg version of my images. If you inspect the image element, then modify it to show -360×360.jpg that completely fixes the issue. Or, I can just back up all of my images and then try to run the regeneration tool you gave, but I have over 250 images (which makes me nervous). Thanks!

    Can you make a post for testing purposes, then attach a featured image that you know has an issue, and that you’ve re-uploaded to the library?

    That’s a great suggestion…I gave it a try and I was like “holy cow” that actually did work. It published the photo at 360×360…I tried also updating an existing post and also deselecting and then reselecting a current pic, but neither of those worked. Shall I just try reuploading the thumbs (as you suggested)? It baffles me WHY that works, but you are the man and know it way better than I do, haha, clearly.

    Before you regenerate the photos, before any further conclusions, can you switch to the Twenty Thirteen theme to see if the issue persists? As in, the issue where your images aren’t being cropped. If you’re not sure how to check that let me know when you have switched and I’ll take a look

    Switching over to Twenty Thirteen the old images are accurately displaying as 360×360, however the new image you had me test upload simple resizes the original image, but it still looks ok. Reverting back to SPUN still has the same issue though with skewing/resizing. But you can have a look if you want. Check the first image thumb in comparison to the 3rd thumb posted on May 21st, 2013…you can see the picture size difference.

    Check the first image thumb

    And if you re-upload the first image to the library, for that post, does the issue persist?
