    Hi I want to make the thumbnail images in the “recent projects” widget in the sidebar larger, so am following another post on the subject. I think I’ve done everything correctly but the thumbnails are just not being regenerated at the new size?

    In my child themes functions.php I have added

    function avia_change_image_sizes(){
    global $avia_config;
    $avia_config['imgSize']['widget'] = array('width'=>210,  'height'=>122); // small preview pics eg sidebar news

    Then in my child’s styles.css I have added

    #top .image_size_widget .news-thumb {
    	width: 210px; 
    	height: 122px;
    	margin-right: 30%
    #top  .image_size_widget .news-thumb img {
    width: 200px;
    height: 112px;
    } { font-size: 14px; } {
    display: none!important;
    .news-headline {
    overflow: visible;
    margin-left: 17%;
    font-size: 14px;

    Then as advised I’m using the “Regenerate Thumbnails” plugin

    The thumbnails do not get regenerated at the larger size, they stay at the default size so not sure what I’m doing wrong?
    I’ve tried turning of the imagify image compression plugin but still no luck.

    Many thanks

    Sure, I created a temporary admin user for you, details in the private content section
    also link to a blog post to see it in the side bar

    I also tried clearing the cache from my caching plugin and normal things and still does not work
    any help much appreciated, thank you



    Can you post a login link, please?

    Best regards,


    Oh sorry about that, url in private section


    I found on another post you can use the portfolio shortcode in a sidebar text widget which has worked quite well!
    …but I would still like to know why the regenerate thumbnail isn’t working for future reference, many thanks



    Glad you figured it out!

    For future reference, you could use the code as following

    add_filter( 'avf_modify_thumb_size', 'enfold_customization_modify_thumb_size', 10, 1 );
    function enfold_customization_modify_thumb_size( $size ) {
    $size['masonry'] = array('width'=>210, 'height'=>122);
    return $size;

    Let us know if you have any other questions or issues!

    Best regards,
