Support » Fixing WordPress » Streched Thumbnails

  • Hi there fellow WordPressers…

    I’ve had this problem with thumbnails for months and just about getting there, here’s my site (using the theme Autofocus, heavily modified).

    http://www.snaxindustries.com/wordpress

    I’m using TDO Mini Forms to allow users to submit posts, which I then would like a thumbnail generated on the homepage. I’ve been through every thumbnail plugin known to man and most of them seem to be stretching my thumbs on the homepage even WordPresses in built thumb feature is stretching them too. At the moment I’m using the plugin ‘Ordered Thumbnails’.

    Is this something to do with the theme, and am I missing something totally stupid. I’ve set my thumbnails size in the media settings to 250 wide x 170 height, I’ve also tried endless other combinations.

  • New in WordPress 2.9: Post Thumbnail Images

    not sure if this helps….but I followed the instructions here somewhat, I have 3 different size thumbnails setup, and none of them stretch or skew if the resize is set appropriately

    Thanks, I have already been through that tutorial and I’m still getting the stretch issue, so I’m beginning to suspect it’s something to do with the theme…?

    it could be….but if you are removing any default theme stuff to do with thumbnails, and implementing the above solution…using the proper method….. there should be no resizing

    In your style.css:

    .home .featured img {
    width:396px;
    }

    That’s what is stretching your featured images width-ways. If you remove it, the images are proportional again but you’ll need to deal with grey area that will be exposed.

    Thanks esmi that’s it! I can’t believe I’ve spent two months on this problem, I’ve searched my Mac for ‘396px’ before (as I measured the whole stretched image once) and nothing ever came up.

    Firebug is wonderful for this kind of problem. 🙂
