To change the size of a thumbnail in Producer go to the standard theme options for the featured category block and scroll to options use cropper, image height, image width, image float. Using Featured Category #2 as the example:

1. Go to your WP dashboard

2. Click the Appearance tab then click Producer Standard Options

3. Scroll down to Featured Category 2 Settings and look for the following options in those settings

#2 Use Cropper?

Do you want to use crop the images in featured category 2? (Cropper is not guaranteed to work)

Image Width Set image width for featured 2 images
Image Height Set image height for featured 2 images
Image Float

Set image float for featured 2 images

If you want leave “Use cropper” set to off only the thumbnail width setting will be used and the height will be adjusted accordingly. If you want complete control over the width and height dimensions you should set Use cropper to “on”. The image will then be cropped to the dimensions you set for image width and image height. The image float setting allows you to decide if to float the image to the left of the content, to the right of the content or not to float the image at all. Selecting “none” will cause the image to appear on top of the excerpt. Left will cause the image to appear to the left of the excerpt and right will cause it to appear to the right of the excerpt.

Starting with Producer version 2.1.9.5 and higher you can control the thumbnail width, height and position for your featured categories.  Control means you can set the values for how many pixels wide the thumbnail should be, how many pixels high, and whether it should float right, float left and not float at all. To do this, you will need to go to Dashboard->Producer Standard Options. If you scroll down to the featured category tabs you will notice there are some new settings that look like

#1 Use Cropper?

Do you want to use crop the images in featured category 1? (Cropper is not guaranteed to work)

Image Width Set image width for featured 1 images
Image Height Set image height for featured 1 images
Image Float

Set image float for featured 1 images

Set Cropper to “on”, enter the number of pixels desired for width and height, set the float value depending on whether you want the image to float left or right or not float, then update your options.

screenshotThere is a new update available for News Magazine Theme 640. Version 1.6.5 improves the thumbnail functions to allow for images to be re-used from the media library. Previously if you inserted an image from your media library and that image was not in the gallery for the specific post the image would not show up. In version 1.6.5 this has been sorted out so now, if you already have images uploaded that you want to re-use you can just insert them from your media library and they should be displayed.

Working on fixing it so you can also use remote images (images linked to from sources outside of your server). This ability is not currently present so if you have images in your post that have a remote/external URL those images will not show up on the homepage.

Version 1.6.5 also adds a new option to the admin for those of you using News Magazine Theme 640 in blog mode. If you want to include the author and date byline under the title for each post shown on the index page you can activate this option from the admin. It is made optional as some people want the byline and others do not.

Please report any problems you are having with version 1.6.5 of News Magazine Theme 640 and thank you for using the theme.

screenshotNews Magazine Theme 640 has been upgraded to version 1.5.9. Included in the update are IE 6 fixes. As reported by some of you there were a number of IE 6 display issues with the theme. The reported issues have been fixed in version 1.5.9. Also in version 1.5.9 there is now an option from the theme options page for you to switch between the two functions available for preparing thumbnails for display so you no longer need to email to request the file with the alternate function. Just go to the theme options page and navigate to the option “Thumbanail Function Switcher”. If you still don’t get the thumbnails to work feel free to use the contact form to request direct assistance. Direct assistance does mean that access to your server will be necessary in order to try to pinpoint the problem.

There is a new “optional” row for content in version 1.5.9. If you find you need to feature another category and have more sidebar widget content on the index page, you can refer to “Activate Extra content row” in the theme options page.

There has also been a fix for the site logo. The textbox to add the link to your logo was missing in previous versions. Please continue to report bugs as you find them to help improve the functionality of News Magazine Theme 640 for yourself and other users.

If you’ve tried all the suggested methods for getting thumbnails to show up on your site using News Magazine Theme 640 and the thumbnails still don’t show, try downloading version 1.0.5.8 of the plugin. There’s a fix applied to cropper.php that could possibly be the fix you need to get the thumbnails showing up on your site.

If you are having problems with thumbnails not showing up while using News Magazine Theme 640, there are a number of possible reasons. There are many of posts on the site dealing with the thumbnail issues users are experiencing. Not every solution will work for every situation because not everyone is dealing with the same reasons for the thumbnails not working. A newly discovered cause of thumbnails showing up with the default no image available graphic is filenames with more than one dot. Example this_is_my.file_name.jpg

As a general rule you should not have a filename with more than one dot. It will work in some instances but not in others so the best practice is to avoid multiple dots in your filename. Definitely if you are going to use News Magazine Theme 640 do not use filenames with more than one dot and make sure the dot is the one that precedes the extension like .jpg, .gif, .png etc.

screenshotIf you are having problems with the thumbnails not showing up you can try the following to see if it resolves the problem. In the file functions.php there are 2 functions named prepsimageurl($src). One of the functions active and the other is commented to disable it. The commented function has a /* at the start of it and a */ at the end of it. What you need to do is put the active function in commented state and uncomment the inactive version of prepsimageurl($src). Just follow the pattern for commenting by mimicking the currently commented version of prepsimageurl($src). In other words, switch the /* */ from the inactive version of prepsimageurl($src) to the active version so that the inactive version becomes the active version and the active version becomes inactive. If you have problems getting this done I’ll be more than happy to help. Just contact me via the contact form. Important: Please do not attempt the file edit unless you are confident of your ability to make the change without creating an error in the file.

screenshotIn answer to questions about how to get images to show in News Magazine Theme 640 when running with the magazine layout turned on, you do not need to do anything differently from how you normally do it.  As long as you are attaching the images to your posts by uploading them from your computer using the Add an Image -> Add media files from your computer in your post editor, the last image you upload to your post will display automatically.

If the image is not showing up it might be because your system is not able to process the function that prepares the image for the cropper to display. In that case there is an alternate function you can try so use the contact form to request the file with the alternate function.
