    I need to change the image crop/proportions for my blog posts as they are cutting off my images, here is an example, both on the individual posts page as well as the news feed post page see links in content links below


    also – my fly out menu at the top is showing a different size when you hover on the genetics vs about menu at the top of the page, the genetics is showing up really large and I changed my menu a few weeks ago. I didnt make any changes to my menu appearance


    Hey wrightella1,
    Sorry for the late reply, you can modify the image sizes in the /enfold/functions.php file, starting at line 166.
    After making your changes you will have to Regenerate Thumbnails.

    For your burger menu font sizes, Please try this code in the General Styling > Quick CSS field or in the WordPress > Customize > Additional CSS field:

    @media only screen and (max-width: 990px) { 
    	#top #wrap_all #av-burger-menu-ul span.avia-menu-text,#top #wrap_all #av-burger-menu-ul li {
    		font-size: 16.5px !important;

    After applying the css, Please clear your browser cache and check.

    Best regards,


    Hi Mike, can I just copy the whole thing line 166-205 to my functions.php in my child theme and change sizes and/or add a few more sizes?
    I do not want to mess with the parent themses functions.php. Will this copied and modified code in the child theme then override the code in the parent theme?


    Sorry for the late reply, that should work, please try.

    Best regards,


    Will do and report back, thanks Mike. This will probably take some days due to other priorities.


    Hi Mike, it worked almost perfectly and I need your further advice. I copied everything from line 166-205 which then included this at the end:

    Code >>>>


    if ( ! isset( $content_width ) ) $content_width = $avia_config[‘imgSize’][‘featured’][‘width’];

    <<<< Code

    When I saved I got an error that function avia_backend_add_thumbnail_size was undefined (of course as I have not copied to my child theme)
    So, I commented it out just to test. The result is that the new image sizes I need is created perfectly, but I can’t choose them from the GUI. It must of course be because that function above is not run. I think maybe the most nice way to do this is to call the origignal function in the parent, but I am not quite sure how to do that. Then I am not sure exactely what the if condition does directly under the call of that function and what I should do with it.

    Feels like I am almost there, just need some more help…….


    To create an image size try using this function instead in your functions.php

    add_image_size( 'small-square', 200, 200, true );
    add_filter( 'image_size_names_choose', 'my_custom_sizes' );
    function my_custom_sizes( $sizes ) {
        return array_merge( $sizes, array(
            'small-square' => __( 'Small Square' ),
        ) );

    For this example it creates the size small_square, 200px square and cropped, and then adds it to your image choices, just adjust for your size(s) and then Regenerate your Thumbnails.

    Best regards,


    Thanks Mike, that works perfectly! Below you can see my implementation of three new picture sizes (for other people too see that needs more than one):

    add_image_size( ‘Top-banner-mobile’, 414, 119, false ); /* Top banner for mobile as background image in color section */
    add_image_size( ‘eg-four-three’, 400, 300, true ); /* Cropped image to fit Essential grid 4:3 aspect ratio Mobile or > 2 column desktop */
    add_image_size( ‘eg-sixteen-nine’, 400, 225, true ); /* Cropped image to fit Essential grid 16:9 aspect ratio (video) Mobile or > 2 column desktop */

    add_filter( ‘image_size_names_choose’, ‘my_custom_sizes’ );

    function my_custom_sizes( $sizes ) {
    return array_merge( $sizes, array(
    ‘Top-banner-mobile’ => __( ‘Top Banner Mobile’ ), ‘eg-four-three’ => __( ‘Essential grid 4:3’ ),
    ‘eg-sixteen-nine’ => __( ‘Essential grid 16:9’ )) );
