These settings are related to the
[search_live] shortcode, the Search Live widget and the Search Live API functions.
Search results are normally presented by showing the post thumbnail and title.
The following options related to thumbnails can be set here:
- Crop thumbnails
- Placeholder thumbnails
The thumbnail width and height are the dimensions (in pixels) of the post thumbnails shown in search results produced by this plugins API functions, shortcodes and widgets.
The thumbnail images can be cropped to match the dimensions exactly if the option is enabled.
Placeholder thumbnails, if enabled, will show a default placeholder thumbnail image for posts without a featured post image.
