Try as I may, I cannot get the crop feature to work within the media files. It appears correct on the page layout, but then reverts back to the 100% image when live. Im sure Im missing something very small, but it is very frustrating. Your help very much appreciated.July 10, 2011 at 12:40 pm #48290
can you post a link to your website please – it helps us to investigate the problem.July 10, 2011 at 7:55 pm #48291
It appears the thumbnail and the full images are reversed in the limelight function; in other words the full image is displayed and when brought up in the link the thumbnail is shown. The site is at http://ph8productions.com/wordpress. It is currently not live.July 11, 2011 at 4:41 am #48292July 11, 2011 at 6:58 pm #48293
I had to use a workaround and make the images fit the use. The issue is, and I believe it is a bug, the two respective images both full and thumbnail are being transposed in their use. So, when using the crop function it would naturally follow that a thumbnail is produced for the text excerpt and the full version displayed in the limelight, when in fact it is using the opposite – the full photo is used in the excerpt and when the limelight is clicked the thumbnail is shown. I would like to use it as it is intended, but I got anxious and just decided not to use the crop function and use images of my own dimensions. No example is left on my site where the images are working incorrectly now.July 12, 2011 at 5:39 am #48294
Did you upload some images before you installed the theme – if yes maybe some thumbnail sizes are missing and you need to regenerate your thumbnails by using: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/July 12, 2011 at 8:19 pm #48295
I did not. All the photos I used were uploaded within the theme framework. I also noticed today when viewing the site on both IE and Firefox that the images are missing completely! Any reason for this?July 13, 2011 at 7:15 am #48296
I.e. I checked this page: http://ph8productions.com/wordpress/?page_id=672 and I noticed that you use .tif images. I think they’re not supported so you need to use jpg, gif and png and the images will appear in Firefox + IE too. Firebug reports that the images can’t be found because the url is wrong which indicates that Firefox just can’t display the file – i.e.: http://ph8productions.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/vinito_frame_sm-02.tifJuly 13, 2011 at 6:40 pm #48297
Yup, that was the issue…. funny how IE and FF don’t support that format, but clearly that is the problem involved. On the issue of the crop/scale can it be confirmed that the two formats are transposed in the theme? That feature would very much streamline the process of converting the .tiffs to .jpgs or .gifs.July 14, 2011 at 5:27 am #48298
