When using the TosRUs gallery and using thumbnails as the pagination option, the “thumbnails” that are shown in the pagination are ALL using paths to the full-sized versions of the images.
The images are displayed onscreen at 50×50, but the paths the images (which are background images) are actually the path to the full sized versions.
This is obviously problematic for performance reasons, especially on mobile devices. To cite just one example, we have a gallery that has about 40 images in it, and each full sized image is approximately 1 to 2mb which makes for about a 60mb penalty just to display those tiny thumbnails in the pagination. That’s an expensive privilege.
Ideally those thumbnails should be utilising the default WordPress thumbnail size of 150×150 at the most.
I can’t see any obvious way (in the plugin settings interface) to specify the thumbnail dimensions, so how can this problem be resolved?
