New web site for Section C!

I have just published the web site for the Swedish skateboard distributor Section C! It’s running on WordPress with a custom theme. Much black, to get the nice contrasts with all the photos.

Fix for WordPress, AutoFocus and wide images problem

Update: I uploaded my version of AutoFocus to Google Code.

I’m building a photo blog to show mostly panoramas using WordPress with the AutoFocus plugin. It works fine but I had one issue.

My panoramas are often in 8:1 (width-height) proportions. When I scale the images it means that I get images that are about 100 px high at 800 px width. It makes the images wrap around the div on the first page in the AutoFocus theme.


To fix it I installed the Additional image sizes plugin.


I configured it to make 800 x 300 images with cropping. I called them 800x300Crop.

Then I added three lines to the function the_post_image_url($size=large) in the functions.php file in AutoFocus. See the code on Google Code.

// Post Attachment image function. Image URL for CSS Background.
function the_post_image_url($size=large) {

        global $post;
        $linkedimgurl = get_post_meta ($post->ID, 'image_url', true);

        if ( $images = get_children(array(
                'post_parent' => get_the_ID(),
                'post_type' => 'attachment',
                'numberposts' => 1,
                'post_mime_type' => 'image',)))
                foreach( $images as $image ) {
                        $attachmenturl=wp_get_attachment_image_src($image->ID, $size);

                        // Added for panoramas
                        // Use the Additional image sizes plugin to generate images that
                        // are 800 x 300 px (cropped) that can be used if the original image
                        // isn't big enough (width or height) when downscaled
                        if($attachmenturl[2] < 300 || $attachmenturl[1] < 800) {

//Keep the rest of the function

It seems to work. Enjoy!
