    Hi there,

    But having some issues here with the boss slider. It doesn’t matter how big the image is we put in, it doesn’t get sharp. The picture stays with pixels and Retina is far far far far far away.

    Any idea how this is possible? We enlarged the image 4x times the 1040 x 400.



    Hi @onica-nl, It’s basic slider

    You can change the slider image with following codes.

    Add them inside child theme functions.php

    add_action('init', 'change_slider_image_sizes');
    function change_slider_image_sizes() {
    add_image_size( 'buddyboss_slides', 2080, 400,true);

    You are free to use the master slider, layer slider or revolution slider for tons for features and You have simple options to add shortcode of them from Boss theme options panel

    2080 is width and 400 is height, you can free to use as per your requirement

    @vapvarun the issue is that no matter what size we upload the images, for slider, or buddypress cover, they wont get retina. So we only see pixel images.

    We use the retina plugin so we now for sure that we have quality images, but in the boss theme none of the images get retina.

    So for instance the cover photo should be more then 1500×500.. we’ve uploaded a 3000X1000 and still the images are poor quality. The slider width and height should be 1040×400.. we’ve uploaded a triple variant of that and it still not pixel free, sharp, retina, but just poor quality.

    Do you know what is wrong??


    hi @onica-nl
    If you are looking for Retina ready slider you can use paid slider plugin like layer slider, revolution slider

    I have the same problem, but with all the images, all of them look very poor quality and I am not using any retina lugin



    This may be related to wordpress compressing images. Go to Setting->Media and blank out media sizes to disable compression.
