Like many others here, I have the problem of blurry images in the news section on the Illdy Frontpage.
Topics: https://colorlibsupport.com/t/blurry-homepage-images/ / https://colorlibsupport.com/t/blurry-thumbnail-images-in-latest-posts-section-revisit/
The problem is, that the theme takes the 250x213 thumbnail pictures and upscales them to 345x213 on a lot of screens. This way, the image can’t be in good quality. You can see for yourself on www.fgreiden.ch
Of course, I tried the fix with your custom plugin (https://colorlibsupport.com/t/feature-image-size-looks-wrong/#post-103745) an the force regenerate thumbnail plugin. That did unfortunately not help as well.
Can you please tell me which files to edit, so that it takes a different image size for the news section images?
I’m pretty sure it’s a bug on ALL installations of Illdy.
Kind regards and thanks
Okay everyone with the same problem, here’s the solution:
Please make a backup first…
Connect to your server via an ftp, go to wp-content/themes/illdy and open functions.php
Search for the line with: add_image_size( ‘illdy-front-page-latest-news’, 250, 213, true );
Change to: add_image_size( ‘illdy-front-page-latest-news’, 345, 213, true );
Go to your wordpress, force regenerate your thumbnails with the plugin. Now the picture under the news section should be in better / acceptable quality.
If it still looks a bit blurry, you could use EWWW Image Optimizer plugin and/or change the functions.php to:
add_image_size( 'illdy-front-page-latest-news', <strong>690, 426</strong>, true );
It’s definitively not the cleanest solution and you will not get A-score on some page speed tests, but at least the website looks a lot better.
Maybe one of the staff could update Illdy plugin and/or write to all the closed topics the solution.
Julian, look like you already make changes in the function,php file, make sure you are using child theme for this modification
