Image resizing after theme change – sttill some issues

  • Author

    This post relates to the current Image Resizing issue referred to in these forum posts.

    My particular experience is inconsistent but it is still present – it started occurring after a change of theme (from INove to Titan).

    I have noticed that the problem is most liklely to occur in older posts when I have reduced the size of the original image (either to fit the page or simply to make it smaller).

    I have also noticed that a browser refresh clears the problem (usually *temporarily* – sometimes the problem returns, sometimes not).

    Using Firefox (23.0.1) Inspect element capability, I have captured the HTML associated with one affected image on original load (image problem present) and then after a refresh (problem gone). Firefox Cached Web Content was cleared before the test.

    IE 10.x exhibits the same behaviour. All images which originally load and manifest this problem are corrected by a refresh

    The blog post:

    After initial page load:

    <img scale="1.5" originalw="497" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2106" alt="BLOG-NICOLSON-HP02-2012-12-14-0002" src="" height="15" width="251">

    After a refresh:

    <img scale="1.5" src-orig="" originalw="497" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2106"
    alt="BLOG-NICOLSON-HP02-2012-12-14-0002" src="" height="388" width="497">

    While I’m not a PHP/WordPress/Web developer, I am an experienced IT Software type. So I find the differences ‘interesting’ to say the least.

    May not help but…

    The blog I need help with is


    Apologies for the delay and thanks for posting this as a separate thread.

    I was able to reproduce the issue you mentioned in a test on my blog using your content, but I’m not sure why it’s happening yet. Since it’s browser-specific, it seems like it might something that could be addressed by a theme CSS update. I need to do a little more testing before I’m sure, and I will post back here when I have more information.



    Thanks – two observations:

    • in my testing it occurs with both Firefox and IE so unless you did additional tests I’m not convinced it is completey browser specific
    • Secondly, the Image HTML is actually different between On Initial Load and On Refresh (or the logical equivalent) event – this suggests server side processing

    I’ve reformatted/re-ordered the code to emphasize the differences and the fact that they don’t seem like they are CSS related (AFAIK – CSS processing can’t add code), the original post went wrong (Forum needs a preview and an author edit capability :)

    After initial page load:

    class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-2106″
    alt=”BLOG-NICOLSON-HP02-2012-12-14-0002″ src=”″

    After a refresh:

    class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-2106″

    Hope the formatting works…



    Sigh… backtick ….

    So, looking at it further, find the code that involves the non-HTML attribute <src-orig/>.

    I think this is being inserted by server-side code – it is almost like a fix for the image sizing problem is being skipped initially.


    Yes, some server side code gets added to make the images display nicely on retina displays if the original uploaded images are large enough to accommodate them.

    However, I don’t think the generated code is the source of the sizing problem in this case, especially since I don’t know of any other users reporting this exact same problem, and that’s why I wanted to do some additional testing.


    Hello, I wanted to check back in with you about that image sizing issue. I checked again just now and I could no longer see the images display too small. Could you let me know if you’re still seeing the problem happening on your side?


    To clarify, I think there may be a bug lurking, but I’m having trouble documenting steps to reproduce the problem. If you can let me know how often you see the issue happening (if at all), that would help.



    I think the problems is still there.

    I’ve actually forgotten whether I had made any changes to the original example post but…

    For some posts, as I found the problem, I edited the postin a monor way.

    Sometimes just resetting the image back to the original size and then resizing it and saving. In order cases, I just added a space in the text and saved.

    At that time, the correct sizing seemed to ‘stick’ but haven’t revisited them since.

    So it’s a tricky one. I’ll see if I can find another example and get back to you.



    Here’s an interesting result for me with the same old link:

    HP Elitebook 8760w (1920×1080)
    Win 7 Pro (64 bit) / Firefox 24.0: shrunken images
    Win 7 Pro (64 bit) / IE 10.0.10: images correct

    HP Compaq 8710w (1920×1200)
    Win XP SP 3 (32 bit) / Firefox 24.0: images correct

    HP Mini 5102 (1366×768)
    Win 7 Pro (32 bit) / Firefox 24.0: images correct

    I checked about 10 other posts spanning the last 18 months – all normal.

    I think the problem is gone/not present for new posts after the Titan theme change but some posts (possibly for certain display/browser combinations) converted from the previous iNove theme may manifest the problem.

    So I think this is now low priority for you – I’ll advise if it find significant problems.


    I just wanted to check back in and say thanks for the latest report and that I will also be watching out for other similar reports in case someone else can offer additional details. Hopefully though, the issue stays gone!


    Update: I’ve received two other reports about the problem where images sometimes appear too small on the first pageload, and they’ve included screenshots showing the web inspector so I could pass those along to our developers. I made an additional report to the developers, and now we’ll need to wait to hear back. Someone will reply again here as soon as there is any news.



    Thanks, excuse the lag. Email notifications had dropped off again.

    The problem is still there for me but still can’t identify a pattern.

    Most recent time on the page below (but I have spotted it on some other pages also):


    Thanks, excuse the lag. Email notifications had dropped off again.

    I’m not sure what could be happening with the emails. I’ve only seen yours and one other report mixed in to threads about other issues. Could you start a separate thread about forum email notifications at if you’d like to dig into that? Note: the first thing you should do is check your spam filter to try to make sure email is not getting filed there by mistake. In my experience, most reports I’ve seen about email not being received in the past is caused by the email provider or email client blocking the mail for some reason (i.e. spam filter at the network level). If you’re still having trouble after checking double checking your spam filters, post it as a separate issue and include as much detail as possible including things like how you subscribed (what option you checked) and a specific example of a reply where you expected to receive an email but didn’t.


    The problem is still there for me but still can’t identify a pattern.

    I haven’t been able to find a pattern either, and I can almost never trigger it in my own testing. I have taken all the examples I could find where users kindly provided screenshots including a view of the web inspector showing the HTML for some of the tiny images and filed a bug report with all the details. Now we’ll need to wait for a reply from the developers.



    On the email notifications – don’t worry about that. As I sent the last email, I realized that the “Notify me of followup posts via e-mail” checkbox was unchecked.

    I had interpreted it as a “Watch this thread” action and assumed that once I had checked this initially, it was sticky – maybe it was unchecked at some previous post before.


    Aha, cool cool.
