Since I have a website for Comic reading, if I use reduced image sizes, it will also reduce the text which will be difficult to read. I want to retain the image size. No problem even if it creates a scrolling window. The post width should adjust to the image.

Anything that will work? I have tried setting 0,0 values in Settings -> Media.

    Can you please provide more info ? Like which theme/plugin etc you are using ? Paste the code responsible for spitting out the output image. – Subharanjan Dec 18 '13 at 8:51
  • myreadingmanga.info/wordpress/?p=1578 Check the link. The image is actually 1800px wide. But it is resized to post width. We are using Genesis theme – user2532458 Dec 18 '13 at 9:06

Paste this code in the style.css file of you current active theme. (file path: /wp-content/themes/genesis-sample/style.css )

.entry-content img.size-full {
    max-width: none !important;
  • Thanks Subha, I already tried that, but can I extend the post width along with that? It will be good. – user2532458 Dec 18 '13 at 12:22

Inside your loop instead of

   <?php the_post_thumbnail( $size, $attr ); ?>

you can get your original sized images as below:

$orignalimage= wp_get_attachment_image_src(get_post_thumbnail_id(),'full');
//now to show the image you can use the html <img> tag
echo '<img src="'.$imageurl.'"/>
//you can also give the height width and other parameters.

If you can change your CSS, just remove max_width on the .site-inner, .wrap line ( .site-inner,.wrap{margin:0 auto;max-width:1140px;}) and the theme will adapt to big-size screens.

Otherwise, remove img selector from embed, iframe, img, object, video, .wp-caption { max-width: 100%; } ( to embed, iframe, object, video, .wp-caption { max-width: 100%; } ) and the image will be displayed with the size indicated inline in the width attribute of the img tag.

  • Simon, I have solved the image size part, but the post seems not extending along with the image. – user2532458 Dec 19 '13 at 0:25
