Featured Images sizing in Post-Grid

  • Creator
  • #26290


    #1: I am at sea as why I can’t get the images in my post-grid to show without truncation.

    #2: Why is the last slide in my slider displaying as large as it does?

    #3: Is the slide element button designed to be as far as it shows on my slider because that’s a hard location based on how wide slides can be? I’d like to move it closer.

    #4: Can the month on the post calendar by made more legible?

    #1: So you’re saying you don’t want your images cropped at all in post grids? There’s no feature for this, and so this would be a customization you’d need to make from a child theme (you’ll need to have one activated obviously).

    Just copy content-grid.php to your child theme and change this part:

    <?php themeblvd_the_post_thumbnail( themeblvd_get_att( 'location' ), themeblvd_get_att( 'size' ) ); ?>

    To this:

    <?php themeblvd_the_post_thumbnail( themeblvd_get_att( 'location' ), 'full' ); ?>

    #2: Your slider will look much better if you use the crop sizes specified by the theme for that, laid out on the Alyeska Item Details page on ThemeForest.

    Slider Full Width – 940×350 (hard crop)
    Slider Staged Left/Right – 530×312 (hard crop)

    You’re selecting to have your images staged left and right

    If you really want to change the crop sizes, you can use this plugin:

    More info about crop sizes:

    #3: The staged slide will look much if you add a title and description also, so it’s not just a lone button. Any other changes in the placement in elements would be CSS customizations you’d need to make.

    #4: In all honesty, I’m not sure what specifically you’re referring to, but I have a feeling the answer will essentially be the same, being that it will be a CSS customization you’d need to make. — For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme‘s style.css or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.
