I tried to switch back to the “Catch Responsive pro” theme, and then the site crashed. So I deleted the test site, created a new and now it works. I was using WP Staging both times so don’t know what happened…
I have seen this issue on my site as well.
@Sakin: instead of changing the overall Slider transition time, I think it would be better to implement a fast initial load time, so that the first image is loaded in the correct size as fast as possible.May 13, 2015 at 2:04 pm in reply to: Slide images not optimized for mobile (Google PageSpeed Insights) #57608
I hope you are doing okay in Nepal.
I know that, but maybe you could consider making duplications of the slider-images with reduced sizes, and then check for the users platform and use a smaller image for that platform. I don’t say that a 100% fit is the target, but with for example three different image sizes, you could achieve a noteworthy improvement on smaller devices.
FYI: I’ve published the website and it is now available at http://www.lounge-dj.dk
Okay, never mind. I found it in the Core file.
It seems that when the “Feature Image” layout option is selected $individual_featured_image is set to ‘featured’, but this value doesn’t match any of the values in the if sentences and hence goes for the full thumbnail…
Of course I didn’t comment out the line for good… 😉
Yes I have regenerated the thumbnails and can see in the upload folder that the different image sizes are available. So that part does work.
Before you get access to my server, can you maybe direct me to which file to check?
I do have several years of (professional) experience with developing backend systems in PHP…
If you prefer you can send me the details on email (find the address at my user account).
Just checked the “Upload”-folder and there are 1200×514, 860×484 etc. image sizes available.
Yep, I have also just Googled it. And if I comment out the “add_theme_support( ‘post-thumbnails’ );” from the core file it disappears. So it’s the same.
So far so good. But I still can’t figure out why the different image sizes won’t work.
I read somewhere that a some themes and plugins disables the feature, so I’ve tried to delete all plugins, switch theme and then back again and upload a new featured image. But it is still the full image size shown on the page.
The frontpage does however show a reduced sized image. So the image resized does work (overall).
The reason I ask about the Featured Image vs. Thumbnail is that I don’t have a “Featured Image” upload option but only a “Thumbnail” upload option.
After reading this guide “https://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/” I can see that I don’t have nearly as many options in my “Screen Option” pull down menu.
I only have (freely translated from Danish to English):
Changes, Own Fields, Discussion, Comments, Short titel, Author, Page attributes, Thumbnail, Page Builder, Catch Responsive options.
The Catch Responsive Options are where I found the Layout options etc. tabs.
So that’s why I wonder if Thumbnail is the same as the Featured Image…
This is my first WordPress website, so I wouldn’t know what to expect. Any advice?
@Thomas: In this page http://wordpress.lounge-dj.dk/?page_id=165, I see that you have use the settings as “Full Image”. So, it will load your original image that you have added in. If you choose featured image, then it will load the cropped image in size of width 860px and height 484px. If you choose Slider image, then it will load the cropped image in size of width 1200px and height 514px.
Okay, I can see that the picture is encapsulated in the <figure> tag. When I select the “featured image”-option it uses the “featured-image from-metabox featured”-class and when I select the “Slider”-option is uses the “featured-image from-metabox slider”-class. However in both cases the picture is full sized and not cropped…
Thanks for the info. I will look into it and report back.
Could you give me a comment on this one?
Is the featured and Thumbnail image the same? Because I only have the Thumbnail option (when editing a page).
Thank you for replying.
I’m aware of the Theme Instructions and image sizes, but I can’t see any (or read in the instructions) what the difference is between the options ““Featured Image, Full Image and Slider Image”. Could you please elaborate?

By the way, I also have the problem with the missing “Read more” in the featured content as explained in this thread http://catchthemes.com/support-forum/topic/want-to-curtail-featured-content/
