Manage and use various thumbnail sizes in different views

This solution is more flexible because the user can decide where the given image thumbnail will appear.

The new settings are available in the DJ-Classifieds configuration. 

Open your Joomla website's backend, then go to DJ-Classifieds component. Go to "Options", choose "Images" tab and scroll down.

New settings are:

Images thumbnails

Settings are available for the following layouts:

  • Classic/RWD table
  • Smart table
  • Single ad (thumbs)
  • User items
  • Table tooltips
  • Blog
  • Feed
  • Single ad(main)
  • Single ad (popup)
  • og:image

Use Image In

Until now, small blog and popup sizes were assigned by default to the added views (for example, small was used in the table, blog on the blog, and pop up as the main pictures in the announcement). Now there are three new options that allow you to choose in which view the thumbnail should be used.

As an example, let's use the layout for user items view. Big Image is set here:

Big image user items

And the result on the front page:Big image user items front Now the small image is set for user items:

Small image user items

And that is how it looks on the front page:

Small images from user view

Resizing images in DJ-Classifieds

Assigning image thumbnails does not require using the resizing feature. However, it can be useful when the user changes the settings of the dimension type of images.
