Support » Theme: Pocono » Why is this theme making so many thumbnails?

  • Resolved jmeeter


    I’m using this theme for a client and I’m confusing why it’s creating 7 versions of the pictures she’s uploading. This is absurd. Here’s the versions it’s making:


    With all these resized versions, each post she makes has about 1MB worth of thumbnails. How do I stop this?

    [Edit] in functions.php I see this – which of these can I eliminate?

    // Enable support for Post Thumbnails on posts and pages.
    		add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
    		// Set detfault Post Thumbnail size.
    		set_post_thumbnail_size( 800, 500, true );
    		// Add Single Posts Image Size.
    		add_image_size( 'pocono-single-posts', 1200, 550, true );

    Hi there,

    Thanks for using Pocono.

    Actually, the theme does not really have many image sizes. It only adds one custom image sizes which is pocono-single-posts

    All other image sizes you have mentioned are from WordPress Core, not the theme.

    WordPress creates different image sizes to increase performance of your website. Better loading times can be achieved if only a small version of your image is loaded, instead of the full one. Especially on smaller screens like smartphone it makes no sense to load a big 2000 pixel image.

    The disadvantage is it takes more space to store all images, but that is mostly not a problem anymore since even shared hosting has enough webspace.
