New Stacks version changes

  • Anonymous


    Not sure why or what is going on but after the stacks update to Version 1.3, a few things changed (again) in a way that what was working before, doesn’t anymore.

    1. On the front page of the website i am trying to build, the Stack Post widget uses the full image all of a sudden instead of the medium one although nothing changed in regard to Posts per page or number of Columns.

    I have no idea why, but i thought the medium size was used before to lower loading times?.

    2. I used the following css in order to have different feature image sizes used on the front page and the posts themselves, that now somehow affects the front page also all of a sudden, which it never did before. I used to have the normal size feature image on the front page and a smaller version on the posts themselves using this css:

    .post .featured-image, .hentry .featured-video {
    margin-bottom: 30px;
    position: relative;
    width: 25% !important;
    float: left;
    padding-right: 10px;
    margin-left: 0px;
    padding-top: 5px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    margin-bottom: 0px;

    Maybe my css is not correct to achieve this or something else is going on, i have no idea anymore.

    All in all it’s becoming a bit cumbersome that with nearly every update from either FJ itself or one of the addons, things not only get fixed, but either break or change in such a way, that i have to start over again to keep the look of the website the same as it was before the update.

    Hi Gendji,

    You can see the changelog for Stacks here:

    We’ve updated the page to include the latest changelog for version 1.3.

    For the CSS, you can limit the code to apply to front page only by prefixing the CSS selector with .home. Example:

    .home .post .featured-image,
    .home .hentry .featured-video {
    width: 100% !important;
    float: none;
    padding: 0;



    Thanks for the css, that solved the problem on the front page.

    Yes, i already found them in the plugin directory itself, but that doesn’t answer my question(s), especially the 1st one.

    Another thing i noticed, which still hasn’t been solved, is that when i use for example Posts per page: 8 and number of Columns: 4, the expected outcome of 2 rows with 4 posts in a row, does not happen. Instead the excerpts shift into 1 row with 4 posts with a the second row all over the place.

    Something i addressed in the past a few times.

    So i still have to use 2 Franz Josef Stack: Posts widgets to achieve that.
