    After running Google page insights test we realized that we have an issue with the images being generated on the website. All images are resized to become thumbnails resulting to a problem with the speed, as Google wants the generated images to be in actual size (and not resized).

    So we have 4 dimensions that the template generates: 555×339, 263×256, 203×120, 100×59.

    For example wordpress medium size image is 320×190 and its resized to 3 dimensions: 263×256, 203×120, 100×59. Instead we want all these sizes to be generated and in each case the template to use one of these sizes.

    Is there anything we can do (use a plugin, change something in the php) to resize the images to their actual sizes??

    Thank you very much for the great template.

    thank you so much for the files!
    Can you please give us more specific instructions for the update?
    For example, must deactivate first the hero banner? We tried to update and was a disaster,so please give us any help possible.
    Thanks again!

    Hello,
    we make the update and we have a lot of problems. Please help us. Fisrt of all, customazation was lost! Yes, we had customazation in child theme. We renamed child theme folder before update, too. Could you please explain us step-by-step how to make update without losing customazation?
    The problems/questions are:
    1. How to display language switcher to main menu or display top menu at scrolling?
    2. Hero banner displays same posts at both languages, even if we change preferences at each language.If the last setting we save are at English version, these settings displayed at both El/En language site and reverse.How to solve this?

    3. Posts that displayed at popular/treding now sidebar widget are mixed greek and english. Either at Greek site language or at English one. Is this WPML problem?
    4. Are there any settings that we need to make in order to solve the issue with image sizes and google page speed?

    We are waiting for your answer.
    Thank you very much

    1st. no there is no way to do the update withough losing customazation. it is a major overhaul! and if you ask me it’s gorgeous! thank you maxxi and jabob 🙂
    I will recommend you to go back to previous version (sparkles 1) and then create a clone website where you can implement sparkles 2 and work on it till is to your liking and then copy the code to your front end website.

    2. I see only english in hero banner. You sure? Maybe you have some google translator enabled?

    3. yes I can see that. but I am not sure. Maxxi will help you with that

    4. Nope bro. Dont worry about it. Trust me sparkles 2 is crazy optimaze, I am getting 98 in pagespeed. and it loads in 2 seconds

    Thanks both Erick and Maxxi,

    1. Love button is ok now.Thanks Maxxxi.
    2. We had tried your solustion Maxxi (about chil theme) but unfortunatly we couldn’t saw them. We had also uncheck the “Skip Theme Backup” at Evanto Toolkit, but there wasn’t any backup at evanto-backup folder after update. Is there anything else we should have done before update in order to get the evanto backup?Anyway, we made customizations again.
    3. Erick, about hero banner, no, we don’t have google translator enable. We don’t use any translator, even WPML String Tranlsator. We just write our posts twice, once in greek and once in english. Of course we connect them through “+” button at Posts menu. We have noticed that if we are in English at backend, and save theme settings, we see at hero banner English articles, both in EN/EL site language and reverse.

    Hero banner and sidebar widget(Treding/Popular) are the most important problems for us and we must solve them immediately. Are these theme problems or WPML? Please help us.

    We are waiting for your answer.
    Thank you very much

    Hi again,

    1. We follow your instruction Maxxi and activate child theme again. Now most of the problems are resolved (sidebar widget/Language position).Thanks!
    2. As I said you, love button added at ALL scrren sizes but we noticed that after update, button doesn’t work at non default site language. I mean that if site’s default language is Greek, button works fine at greek posts but doesn’t work at english ones, and reverse. Do you have any suggestion for this?
    3. Hero banner displays last posts regardless post language. If posts are translated, we see them at english site, but if there is no tranlation we see greek posts both EN/GR site. Unfortunately, we don’t translate all of our posts. So we would like to see greek last posts at greek site and english last posts at english site. Is that possible?

    Thank you very much.
