This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

RICG Responsive Images


Bringing automatic default responsive images to WordPress.

This plugin works by including all available image sizes for each image upload. Whenever WordPress outputs the image through the media uploader, or whenever a featured image is generated, those sizes will be included in the image tag via the srcset attribute.

Important notes

  • As of WordPress 4.4, images are responsive by default. If you are on WordPress 4.4 or plan to update, you will not need to install this plugin.

If you have had this plugin installed since before version 2.5 but are running version 4.4 of WordPress, it is important that you leave the plugin installed. This is because all versions of the plugin before version 2.5 relied on a data-sizes attribute being present on an image in order to provide the responsive markup needed. If the plugin in this case is removed, then images in posts will be left with invalid markup. We are working to address this issue, and you can keep track of our progress here at

You can still use the plugin for advanced image compression support or as a simple way to include the picturefill script. The plugin will fall back to WordPress default functions if responsive image support is detected in your installation.

  • Version 3.1.0 includes important changes that make this plugin compatible with WordPress version 4.4. Upgrading is highly recommended.

  • As of version 2.5.0, the plugin adds srcset and sizes attributes to images on the front end instead of adding them to the image markup saved in posts.

I really like the idea of this plugin but my site suffered significant “bloat” because of the variety of image sizes that the plugin made of each upload. Now, I get error warnings when using Duplicator because of the huge image folder. I also disabled the plugin and will go through and try to eliminate the code issues and the many, many sizes of each image.

I like the idea of this and I believe this plugin would be a benefit for those who wish to place a LOT of large dimension images on their website. For my purposes I will remove the plugin and will have to go through code to remove unnecessary and unwanted code. When I need it, it will be much easier to manually put the code in and utilise the varying sizes WordPress outputs when uploading images. Browser support for the srcset attribute is still limited – initially I thought it still a great idea to benefit those who use browsers that support srcset. But I regularly place small images/thumbnails that link to lightbox versions. The plugin was placing code onto the 150×150 thumbnails – which is pointless and adds code clutter. I deactivated the plugin, deciding only to turn it on for inserting large images. Recently I discovered, on opening up the read more divs on my website that all the images within were now displaying at 100% width. This totally broke the layout of the pages and obviously images of 200px wide now looked horrible when displaying many times bigger than actual resolution. I activated the plugin and the images displayed correctly again – but now I am back with unnecessary code being added to thumbnails. The reason I didn’t notice this earlier was all other images inserted, while plugin was activated, beyond the expanding divs were in max-width containers. I believe a recent Wordpress or plugin update created this display issue. If there were a check box added within the Add Media section that would allow the code only to be placed when checked would make me be happy to have the plugin installed and activated.

I did not like having all the images sizes added to the code in my post. When I went to the post I was getting code errors for images which are not in the post (because they were off sizes from the actual image). Now, after uninstalling the plugin I still have all that extra code in every post. I’m going to have a lot of clean up from this plugin. Of course, I’m not happy with that. I think your idea for this plugin is right on the mark. But, the practical side of making it work needs change. Adding extra code to the post is not something I want to do. I’m leaving this as a review so others will know what to expect and (though it may not seem like it) to encourage the developers. I’m not rating the plugin low because it does what it says it will do.
