    I noticed a problem on the blog posts and pages so I made a simple test:

    I added an image at full scale, then added it again and rescaled it to 60% using the WP Advanced Image Settings. Then I added it again, and scaled it to 161px X 201px using the image “handles.”
    But on publishing it, all three images are scale 100% – 225px X 291 px..
    Using FireBug you can see that the top image is
    wp-image-479″ width=”225″ height=”291″ , the second image is wp-image-479″ width=”135″ height=”175″ and the third is wp-image-479″ width=”161″ height=”209″ .

    Do I need to change this CSS?
    img, a img {
    border: medium none;
    display: inline-block;
    height: auto;
    image-rendering: optimizequality;
    margin: 0;
    max-width: 100%;
    padding: 0;
    width: auto;

    Why is that CSS property set in the base.css? To what should I change it ?


    Hi akamaxbuz!

    This is deliberate to keep images responsive. You can wrap images in containers via the column shortcodes to constrain them or choose smaller thumbnail sizes if you want to add in the actual smaller image.



    Where can I review the use of short codes? I didn’t find it in ““Enfold WordPress Theme” Documentation by “Kriesi” v1.0” But I think I have seen it somewhere.


    And what do you recommend for blog posts? We have started three here:
    That is how I would normally do it with align left run arounds but I think you must have another approach to blogs using more than one photo. Thanks.



    You can watch some videos here to learn more about the theme:

    What do you want to do with the blog page? You can edit the blog style on Enfold > General Settings > Blog Style. The option will work if you set the blog on Enfold > Theme Options > Where do you want to display blog? option. If you want to add more content on the blog page other than the blog posts, you can deselect the blog page on Where do you want to display blog? option. Edit the blog page then add the Blog Posts element along with the other content.

    Best regards,


    Thanks, but your link is not taking me anywhere. I just get the spinning loading gif.
    I did find the page as an example of what is possible.
    Is there a tutorial on making blog posts? I have tried making a gallery with the Post Format > Gallery and then using Insert Shortcode from the “Kitchen Sink.” You know, the icons above the Content pane. This is the short code.
    [av_gallery ids='268,266,267' style='thumbnails' preview_size='portfolio' crop_big_preview_thumbnail='avia-gallery-big-crop-thumb' thumb_size='thumbnail' columns='3' imagelink='lightbox' lazyload='deactivate_avia_lazyload']

    And this is the test post –
    Why don’t the thumbnails fit into three columns? This looks Wack.

    Isn’t there a tutorial on blog posts formats? This is going to be very difficult to explain to my client.


    About the link in your reply not loading: when I click on the link above, it tries to open up in a lightbox and that doesn’t load. That is when I get the spinning gif. When I clicked on it in your email to me, then it goes to the screencast page.
    I see there are screencasts about the visual editor, (Avia Layout Builder) but is there one about Blog Posts? The Visual Editor is not an option for new blog posts. And something about the Insert Shortcode UI?



    1) It seems like you solved the columns issue? The images have the same height and are displayed in 3 columns: – I suggest to increase the thumbnail quality (you can do this in the gallery modal/option window) though because at the moment the images are blurry.

    2) Yes, Ismaels link points to a vimeo channel and the lightbox can’t open it. Please right click on the link and open it in a new tab/window.



    The problem with the link > lightbox happened because I was reading on an iPad. It didn’t occur to me that this forum was not responsive. When I did examine on the iMac, I did find those video tutorials.
    What is the time frame for answering forum questions? I thought I read somewhere that it was 24 hours. I need to manage my expectations.



    We normally try to answer with 24h but at the moment Devin is on a maternity leave for two weeks or so and we also experience an increase of the support requests because of the new video background feature and the increased number of sales. Right now I can’t promise an answer within 24h but (to be on the safe side) I rather aim for 36-48h. It will be 24h again though when Devin returns.

    Best regards,
