Size of medium images in horizontal homepage panes.
I am testing a static homepage with 8 panes (plus 2 text widgets) below the main article.
Originally the panes appeared vertically. I made minor css changes to have them displayed horizontally,
The media settings are set on a 4/3 scale :
Thumbnails : 175 x 130
Medium-size : 225 x 170
Large : 800 x 600
I used the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin after changing the settings.
The object is to avoid the pictures being truncated when they are displayed as thumbs in the categories, or as medium-size images on the home page.
It works well with the categories as can be seen when clicking the “En page d’accueil” category. But whatever I do, their size is (+/-) 340 x 170 on the home page. The images are complete but are displayed on a 2/1 scale.
Help is welcome.
I am trying to understand how WordPress manages images and had a look at the contents of the uploads file.
The Media settings are :
Thumbs : 175×130
Medium : 225×170
Large : 800×600
First I uploaded into an article a photo called Bougon.jpg whose size is 800 x 600.
In the uploads file I found 7 pictures. I expected 4. Am I wrong ? Here they are :
The picture in the article displayed automatically in the medium size so I did not have to resize it. I would have accepted any size providing the 4/3 ratio was kept.
In the categories the picture is displayed at the thumb size and it is what I wanted.
The problem is with the homepage panes. The size of the pictures is 340×170 and I want it to be 225×170 that is the medium size.
I have three questions:
– Does WP need 7 pictures ?
– Where can I correct the 340×170 setting?
– After so many tests I have a lot of pictures to delete. Is it OK to do it in the uploads file or should I do it in the media library?
Help is desperately needed. Thanks in advance.
