I use ‘Shufflehound About Us’ widget in the Blog page sidebar.
I have set an image for that widget, and it uses 1024 x 978 size image, which is then scaled to 192 x 184. I get warnings about this in GTmetrix.
Is it really necessary to use the largest size for a widget? Can I change it somehow? I wouldn’t like to upload another smaller image when I already have smaller versions of this one (200 x 200 or 150 x 140 for example).
Eather I don’t understand something about using images, or you didn’t understand my question.
When I upload an image to WordPress, it generates several resized versions of that image, some of them are WordPress and there are 8 resized Gillion’s versions. There are 14 versions in total (including original image).
If I upload another, smaller image to be used in widget, I will have 14 more images which I don’t need.
My question was:
Why widget doesn’t use one of the existing smaller versions of the image?
Like in the ‘Related posts’ section after the post content, for example.
I can see in the theme file /gillion/inc/widgets/about-us/views/widget.php the following code added o line number 16 is displaying the large image, therefore I have notified the theme developer so that it will be changed to smaller image size.
gillion_get_small_thumb( $atts['image']['attachment_id'], 'large' );
In the meanwhile, please change the ‘large’ to any of the below values on your site.
I have a similar problem from pages, this is my ticket :
Because you’r theme don’t use a best size for integrate a pictures in your modules.
