How to Regenerate Images

How To  Troubleshooting  Last Updated: Time to Read: Less than a minute

This article is helpful if you had existing content in WordPress prior to activating Layers, a Layers child theme, or  WooCommerce.

  1. Go to PluginsAdd New
  2. Search for ‘Regenerate Thumbnails’ and click Install under the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin listing by Viper007Bond. There are several other thumbnail regeneration plugins, but this one is the most thorough. If you want advanced control over the quality and sizes regenerated, you may opt to use WPSmushIt instead.
  3. Activate the plugin when complete
  4. Go to ToolsRegen Thumbs and click Regenerate Thumbnails. This process can take several minutes, so do not navigate away from the page or close the browser until complete.
    • You may open a new tab and continue working in WordPress until the regen finishes.
  5. When complete, reload your page and the images should be as expected. If you were having issues with widget image ratios, edit your page layout and reset the ratios and they should now work.
