Specifying a width and height for all images

  • Creator
  • #25040

    Your testimonial slider does not indicate the size of ‘author-image’.
    Same issue on ‘Simple slider’ on CSS class ‘item’.

    Specifying a width and height for all images allows for faster rendering by eliminating the need for unnecessary reflows and repaints.

    I disagree in doing it for all images, but I can see how it would make sense in something like the simple slider that has large images. However the bigger issue is that those images do not have dimensions saved to them when the slider outputs. And the theme works in a way where it avoids several potential database queries by working off all the image data it needs being present in a meta data array saved from the builder, opposed to actually querying data from WordPress for every image. So to add that isn’t a simple thing and it would require re-evaluating several things starting from the JavaScript in the layout builder that works with media modal window, to saving dimensions with the images, to handling them correctly on the frontend, accounting for those that may then have the old data structure saved.
