Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Regenerating featured images, part of WordPress DIY: Weddings and Special Events.
- If you use featured images in your WordPress site,…the first thing you have to do…after installing and activating a new theme…is regenerating all the featured images…and all the thumbnails.…You see, when you upload an image to WordPress,…either within a post…or as a featured image…or in some other way,…WordPress will take the original image…and then scale it to different sizes,…depending on the settings in WordPress…and also the settings for the theme.…That way, if the theme author…has decided that there's gonna be featured images,…the theme author can specify exactly what size…and what crop ratio those images should have…to display properly.…
Now, when you install a new theme,…you rely on the images that were generated…from the previous theme.…So since I uploaded all my images while using 2015,…all of my images have been scaled and cropped…to fit 2015.…But now I'm using Radcliffe,…and that means I need to regenerate…all of these featured images and all the thumbnails…to fit with the current theme.…I can do all this using a simple plugin.…
