How to disable WordPress from creating thumbnails?

These are some thoughts on disabling WordPress from creating multiple thumbnails, it might work for you and might not depends on the theme yo have, plugins etc …

– Turn off any plugins.
– Switch to your default theme.
– Set all image sizes to 0 in the Settings –> Media settings.

disable WordPress from creating thumbnails

This should keep WP from generating those extra thumbnails sizes. WP should creates only one additional thumbnail around 20-25Kb

If this doesn’t work for you, then either a plugin or the theme you are using is making some changes.

Some themes have functions like add_image_size, set_post_thumbnail_size or update_option('large_size_w', 500); in the functions.php file, so you will need to check that file.

hope it helps

WordPress plugins that will help your design be responsive

In this post i’ve gathered some wordpress plugin that will help your wordpress theme be more responsive and mobile friendly, hope it’s useful for most of you out there …

WP Fluid Images

WP Fluid Images runs when you insert an image into a Post or Page. It removes the fixed width and height attributes from the image tag. If you insert an image from the image uploader, by default, a width and height attribute is inserted into the image tag with fixed pixel values. This plugin prevents this from happening, because this can be problematic if your theme is built using responsive design methods. The plugin also adds a style tag in the header that sets a max-width rule of 97%. This insures that any image in a Post or Page won’t extend past the width of the Post or Page.

WP Orbit Slider

WP Orbit Slider
WP Orbit Slider is based around the jQuery Orbit Slider from the excellent team Zurb. It uses a custom post type for each slide and taxonomies to create slider groups. The restriction is one slider per post/page. Don’t fill your pages with sliders. Use one. Make it bold and get your message across!

FitVids for WordPress
