Hi, we’re adding featured images in each portfolio project, cropped to the right dimensions, but they’re not being used. The portfolio section is just showing the whole image as a background.
Here’s our site:
Any suggestions? Thanks!December 17, 2013 at 10:51 am #2134
first of all, thank you for the purchase!
The image shown in your first screenshot does appear on the website, please see the highlighted portfolio item on my screenshot. Portfolio projects display images as backgrounds in Kanso in order to enhance theme flexibility and allow for compatibility with high-resolution displays. The background images are positioned in the middle of the portfolio items to fit in with maximum efficiency by using the CSS “background-size: cover” method. In this case the original image is quite elongated vertically (source), which makes it cropped in the portfolio grid. Please try making the thumbnail source image more “square”, i.e. closer to the dimensions of the portfolio boxes.
P.S. I can see that there’s a small CSS bug in the theme by looking at the positioning of the portfolio grid on your website – I recommend downloading this fix and updating the theme files (simply upload the contained file into the theme root folder /wp-content/themes/Kanso/).

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!
Right, the image itself is showing up, but the thumbnail (which we’ve cropped) does not. The image you highlighted should be this one: http://celebratememory.com/masresha/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/thumb-300×222.jpg
The thumbnail is showing up as the “featured image” in the project, just not on the home page. Does the “image” format not use the thumbnail?
I’ve uploaded the theme fix but it didn’t change anything.

the last file I sent you was not intended to alter the image, it was to fix a small bug that I found at the same time; sorry for mis-communication :)
As to the issue, please try removing and re-uploading the thumbnail for the project in question – the mechanism that displays the project box background image takes the latest of all images attached to a particular project, including both the images in the content and the attachment (in WordPress, all of them are considered attachments). Let me know if this helps!

Thanks Andrii. I removed and reuploaded the thumbnail, but nothing has changed.
The thumbnails for videos work, just not the thumbnails for image posts.December 18, 2013 at 12:34 pm #2160
I agree that the algorithm that sourced the images for portfolio items was unnecessarily complicated; thank you for bringing this up! I’ve completely re-thought it and here’s what I came up with. Please upload the contained file into the theme folder and let me know if it does what you needed (which is, showing the thumbnail as the portfolio item background and the content image as the on-click overlay).

Thanks so much Andrii. We’re trying to launch this today so the fixes are really appreciated.
I uploaded the new content-image file, but it doesn’t seem to have changed anything? I deleted and re-uploaded the thumbnail but no luck.December 18, 2013 at 2:30 pm #2168
Ah, nevermind! I didn’t realize that setting the site up as a multisite meant we had the theme in each subdirectory. I replaced the file in the subfolder, and it’s all working now. Thanks so much!December 19, 2013 at 9:09 am #2176
Glad it works! I will include the new code into the theme update to version 1.2 that I’m submitting right now ;)
