Support » Plugin: Picturefill.WP » Use directly "Large Size" as 2X of "Medium Size"?

  • Hello,

    My “Large Size” images are already exactly the double of my “Medium Size” images. And I use only “Medium Size” images in my posts. Can Picturefill.WP reference directly my “Large Size” images instead of generating its own 2X versions of “Medium Size”?

    In other words, I want 1X to reference “Medium Size” and 2X to reference “Large Size”, and I don’t want generation done by Picturefill.WP.

    Is this possible?

    Unfortunately it’s not super easy to do what you describe at the moment. For your use case, you might want to take a look at version 2 of this plugin over on GitHub, which doesn’t create any new image sizes. I think that might be closer to what you’re looking for.

    I’ll have to think about this to see if I can make the kind of flexibility you describe work in the existing version 1 framework. The biggest strength and biggest weakness of the picture syntax is that it is very explicit, so flexibility can sometimes be a challenge.

    Thanks very much for your question and for sharing your use case.

    Thank you for your reply. Picturefill.WP 2 looks exactly like what I need. I didn’t know about the existence of this version 2, since it’s only on Github. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work on my server out-of-the-box. I get black pages on the frontend, and a series of PHP errors on the backend:

    [13:21:42] PHP Fatal error:  Class 'DOMDocument' not found in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/picturefill/inc/class-picturefill-wp.php on line 109
    [13:22:06] PHP Fatal error:  Class 'DOMDocument' not found in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/picturefill/inc/class-picturefill-wp.php on line 109

    I will try to look into these errors when I find free time.
