Problem with large, wide Slider cropping images

  • bhi


    Good day,

    Been having an issue since increasing the main column width in a 2 column template. Thank you for making this option so easily accessible now. I really like how it’s right in the Graphene options.

    The Slider I am working with is 700px wide, 240px tall. I can upload those exact dimensions, but when it is displayed in the Slider, there is a bit cropped off the left side and it starts to tile. This is even the case when I select Custom Featured Image and manually enter the http. I have tried the suggestions at:

    which suggested:

    function graphene_custom_slider_image_size(){
    return 960;
    add_filter( 'graphene_slider_full_image_width', 'graphene_custom_slider_image_size' );

    but to no avail, even though I tried a return of 700.

    If I make the image or Slider smaller, say to 660px, then it doesn’t crop, but still tiles.

    Any thoughts? It’s kind of a weird one and hard to describe, but for some reason the Slider is presenting the images wrong, even though like look fine in the Featured Image selection slot.

    Include a link to your site and we can take a closer look.




    Thank you for the replies.

    I have already tried the fix you posted and it didn’t make a difference, although I didn’t try them in combination with the other fixes above. Do you think I need to do them all for it to work?

    The website is a bit of a mess at the moment as I was working on changing something else, but feel free to check out here:

    The second Slider image has more image than the man’s left shoulder. The image should go to the left more.

    When did you update the theme-head.php file? If it was some time ago, try updating it again as you may not have the latest revision of that file.

    Also, after updating that file, you need to rebuild your thumbnails. Use the AJAX Thumbnail Rebuild plugin for this.



    I ended up having to erase the theme and install it fresh with the latest patch. Would this have updated the theme-head.php file?

    Do you recommend having to rebuild thumbnails on a fresh install?

    Thank you so much for the support.



    I have a similar issue with my slider images being cropped on the right side. This is shown clearly by our ‘CitiLife’ logo image. All my slider images are 660 x 260. Website is What do I need to do to keep images within the frame?



    Well, actually your current settings for the slider are 640×270. This is why your images are slightly cropped on the right, and have a thin black strip across the bottom.

    Try making your images 640×270 before uploading, and you should be good to go.
