k69rocks Hi, I am using Folio Grid Pro (http://www.frogsthemes.com/theme-switcher?demo=foliogridpro) with WP User Frontend Pro. Everything is working fine, except in order for the featured image to show on the home/category page, I have to re-update the post that was posted from the frontend… Anyway where it can post automatically? Some php snippet or something in the single.php or so? Also, if someone uploads an image that is too big for the post page, can I set a default (max. size) also as a php command somewhere? (Besides mentioning it on the Write a new post page how big the pic should be max.) Obviously, I would probably have to determine later, after the user has posted, if the post should be one, two, three column width on the home page. Unless that can be done automatically as well, depending on how big the featured image is. The site is: http://altheidelberg.com/ Thanks! Richard P.S. I had a similar problem with the featured image with another theme, where it would appear twice in the post.

I think the featured image problem is happening from your theme. When you display a featured image, you’ve to specify the size of the image. For example, if you want to show thumbnail sized image, you’ve to use <?php the_post_thumbnail('thumbnail'); ?>. More details is here. That should solve your problem.

You can’t set the max height/width, but you can specify the image size. Smaller image size, smaller image 😉

This is the reply from the theme developers:

“Hi Richard,

I would imagine if you set the field for ‘Featured Image’ instead of ‘Image Upload’ it should work fine? It should be resized correctly by the theme also.
You may need to set a custom field that is ‘media_use’ with the value ‘image’ to make it be used by the post automatically perhaps.

You can probably also set a custom field option when a user is posting a post for ‘columns’ and the values ‘One’, ‘Two’ and ‘Three’ for the column widths.

Glad the other theme is working well

Kind regards,

Nick”

With custom fields I imagine he means an action hook?

I tried the featured image php command, but that just adds another thumbnail in the post on the homepage/category page…

Perhaps the css class is the answer? Even have 3 featured image fields with 1,2, or 3 column choice?

Thanks!
Richard

I think he is saying it right. I thought you were using the “Featured Image” field? If you are using the “Image Upload” field for uploading image and use the “Custom Fields in post” option from the plugin settings, the plugin will add the uploaded images in full size.

Technically, only one image can be featured image and you need to use “Featured Image” field from the “Post Fields” section of “Form Elements”. I hope that will make sense to you.

Hi Tareq,

as I mentioned to them, I am already using the Featured Image field….

Hi NIck,

I have Featured Image as field setup already. I don’t see anything for custom field (unless you mean action hooks?); however I can add a css class for the featured image field.

Perhaps the css class is the answer? Even have 3 featured image fields with 1,2, or 3 column choice?

Thanks!
Richard

Thanks,
Richard

P.S. I tried CSS classes to no avail…the php command is probably somewhere missing in the theme. If all else fails, reposting the post and setting the width of the post, and maybe sometimes changing the image size afterwards should be no problem, if it isn’t like 200 posts a day. 🙂

Best bet is posting a test post. 🙂

Frogs responded with:

Hi Richard,

I’m not fully sure on how the plugin works. It may not like the way the featured image is pulled out in our theme. I would imagine that it would allow you to add custom fields though that I suggested and that should solve it for you I would think.

Kind regards,

Nick

I posted a new post with featured image. The featured image is showing in the single post, but not on the homepage. Is that the problem?

Yes. 🙂

Right, so the theme is doing something. I didn’t understood, but “Nick” already mentioned it. There is a custom field “media_use” and it needs to have the value “image”. When you are creating posts from WPUF, that custom field is not being added and thats the problem.

Insert this php code in your themes functions.php and it should work from now.
[php]
/**
* Update the custom field when the form submits
*
* @param type $post_id
*/
function wpufe_folio_grid( $post_id ) {
update_post_meta( $post_id, ‘media_use’, ‘image’ );
}

add_action( ‘wpuf_add_post_after_insert’, ‘wpufe_folio_grid’ );
add_action( ‘wpuf_edit_post_after_update’, ‘wpufe_folio_grid’ );
[/php]
