Adjusting Thumb Postion WordPress

  • SOLVED

I am using the eStore them from Elegant Themes and I'm having a problem with the #switcher. The hanging frames in the switcher display a thumbnail view of the featured image, but it only displays a portion of the center of the image. I need to adjust (in the div id="switcher") the image in the frame to select a portion of the picture further to the left of where it is currently selecting. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I think thumbnails are created using wordpress features.

I checked your main image http://rhinofabrication.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/futureproducts4.jpg

It is trying to crop from center and your main image have lots of white space. so removing extra white space and centering your main product will be helpful to solve your problem.

Other then that you can create some other mechanism like adding extra metabox for thumbnail upload and modify code to show those thumbnails instead of auto generated thumbnails.


orrell9907 comments:

Removing the extra white space on the main images may fix the thumbnail image, but then the main image would be in the wrong place.


Bob comments:

Oh I didn't notice that it's a slider.

Then you have another option that is setting different image for thumbnails.

You can use custom fields to set thumbnail image.

and that thumbnails will be used there.


Bob comments:

If you want to do that way then please let me know.

I can help you with that.


Bob comments:

If you do not want to user any plugin then create custom fields directly.
1. go to your product page from wordpress admin side
2. see if custom fields meta box is available? not the enable it by visiting "screen options" at top right of you screen
3. go to custom fields meta box, you should have space to enter key and value. if there is drop down there instead of text field then click "Enter New" link
4. in key field write <em><strong>slider_product_thumb</strong></em>
5. in value field paste path of your thumbnail image.

In above way set thumbnail for all your featured products.

Then replace following code with new code
Old code in switcher div

print_thumbnail( array(
'thumbnail' => $arr[$i]["thumb_small"],
'use_timthumb' => $arr[$i]["use_timthumb"],
'alttext' => $arr[$i]["fulltitle"],
'width' => (int) $width_small,
'height' => (int) $height_small,
'et_post_id' => $arr[$i]['post_id'],
) );

New code to replace.

$thumb_img = get_post_meta( $arr[$i]['post_id'],'slider_product_thumb',true);
if($thumb_img){
echo '<img src="'. $thumb_img .'" width="109" height="109" scale="0">';
}else{
print_thumbnail( array(
'thumbnail' => $arr[$i]["thumb_small"],
'use_timthumb' => $arr[$i]["use_timthumb"],
'alttext' => $arr[$i]["fulltitle"],
'width' => (int) $width_small,
'height' => (int) $height_small,
'et_post_id' => $arr[$i]['post_id'],
) );

}


Above code will check if you have set new thumbnail for it or not?
If it found thumbnail then it will print it, otherwise it will call default image.

Let me know if you have any doubt.

or let me know if you want to do it via custom fields plugin like <em>advanced custom fields</em>

or Provide me your ftp and admin access I will do it for you.

Can you provide a link to see better your situation? Thank you.

Balanean Corneliu comments:

I think you need to insert manualy that thumbnail. If you take a look to the demo of eStore theme you can see the thumbnails is not an auto crop of the big image because each one have diferent crop made.


Balanean Corneliu comments:

You have set up just the futured image right?
Take a look at the bottom i think theare are located this thumbnails settings .
