Please note that our Legacy Themes have been replaced by new Thrive Theme Builder Themes. While our Legacy Themes are still functional, we are no longer actively developing them. This article explains why the Thrive Theme Builder themes don't need fixed "Featured Image" sizes.
Ignition is a multi-purpose theme, suitable for many types of websites. With its full-width style and design choices made for some elements, marketing pages, and landing pages look especially good when built with Ignition.
Recommended Image Sizes
Here are the ideal image widths for the Ignition theme layout:
Featured image on a page with sidebar: 696px
Featured image on a full width page: 1040px
Thumbnail style featured image: 220px
Page section background image on a page with sidebar: 696px
Page section background image on a full width page or static image: 1920px
Custom author image for author widget: 247px
Here are some points about the Ignition theme that may not apply to all other themes:
Ribbon Style Focus Area
For the top area, you can add a "ribbon" style Focus Area to this theme. This is a great way to get visitor's attention to an offer without using up a lot of screen real estate. Example of the ribbon:
For purely aesthetic purposes, the ribbon Focus Area looks better when breadcrumbs are deactivated. But of course, breadcrumbs are very useful for many reasons themselves.
Our general recommendation is to keep breadcrumbs active, but deactivate them on specific pages and posts, if you are only showing the ribbon on those specific pages and posts.
