Support » Theme: Twenty Seventeen » Twenty Seventeen iPadOS front page featured images

  • This issue affects the the display of images on the front page of sites using the Twenty Seventeen theme, when viewed on the new iPadOS 13.1.

    The main image at the top of the front page is OK. However, all featured images of pages in the panels in sections down the front page are magnified (zoomed in) to the point where the image is unrecognizable.

    The same featured images on the respective individual pages display OK on that page.

    Example sites:

    I have tested this on multiple devices, across several sites. The only devices affected are those running iPadOS 13.1

    Twenty Seventeen front pages display OK on desktops, laptops, on iPads running earlier versions of iOS, and on iPhones with iOS 13.1 installed. But not on iPadOS 13.1.

    Any suggestions as to a possible cause, and ideas on how to remedy this issue, greatly appreciated.

  • Yeah, I’m also looking the next month or so. Please let me know if you find something nice…

    As others have noted, this may be more of an issue with iPadOS rather than the theme.


    Wherever the root of the problem lies, it doesn’t look like being resolved any time soon, and I certainly don’t have the time, knowledge or technical expertise to pursue this with the Apple folk. So I have gone down the path of adding code to the theme to disable the parallax effect, which although applied to all browsers, resolves the issue on iPadOS. (Suggested by others – I don’t have the technical knowledge to write this code!)

    On the site I have added the following to Theme > Customise > Additional CSS:

    /* resolve issues with background positioning */
    .background-fixed .panel-image {
    background-attachment: unset;

    Resolves the magnified images on iPadOS, but sacrifices the parallax effect on all browsers and OSs.




    Is there a resolution already? I have the samen issue. The images on the homepage are not correctly shown on a iPad with the twenty seventeen theme. The first picture is ok, but the others are only showing a small part of the picture.
    This is with Safari on a iPad 2018. My laptop and telephone are showing ok. I have this issue for several websites:

    Thanks for the hacks. Although “normal” users will never see this thread…

    Really too bad this official theme hasn’t taken this into account yet. Is 2017 really too old to get improved with basics?

    The media query hack on Page 1 (@philipprem) fixes it, but is quite heavy-handed as it spoils the image effect for all viewports between 768px and 1024px. It’s a shame there’s no way of automatically getting the fix obtained by “Request Desktop Site”.

    Can WordPress please resolve this ongoing issue with the resolution of the images on the home page which appears to be specific to Safari on iPad. Even the official Twenty Seventeen Theme Demo is afflicted!
