  • Hi All – I hope you can help me with an issue I’m having with my Yooco theme

    On most pages I just use the standard WordPress Featured Image setting to create a featured image. This works fine and the image displays below the heading/title bar.

    On my homepage though there is a slider which features ABOVE the heading/title bar. When I try to replace this with a single image then the image only displays across part of the screen and is not full width. This looks really ugly

    What am I doing wrong please and what dimensions should the image have? There is nothing at all about image sizes int he documentation and I cant find anything using google.

    Thanks

    Colin

    Hi Colin,

    generally the image is always as large as you upload it. If you upload an image with 1000 pixel width the theme will show it as an 1000 pixel width image, means on most screens it is too small. We use for all our themes the image width 1920 pixel, this will cover most screens.

    If you want, you can send us the link to the page with the problem, then we can take a look at it.

    Thanks for that, I have tried a much larger image and that works thanks.

    The problem with large images is that to keep any kind of decent ratio a very wide image will of course be very deep too and kind of destroys the page. My site now looks better on a mobile device than a computer lol!

    Also – even with crushing optimisation a 1920 wide image is a big file!

    Hi, yes, we know, but that’s the only way. We tried different solutions but there is no “master solution” to fit all clients needs, and for us the only “true way” is to show the images always with the original sizes. And with image optimization tools you can reduze the image size dramatically
