I also need to force cropping to a certain size (150×150) for thumbnails on tile plus, but I notice it still displays them with aspect ratio maintained. I do have the cropping showing correctly on the actual event management view, and it also displays correctly cropped when using other templates such as the table entry card. When I switch back to tile plus, however, it displays the images with aspect ratio preserved, not cropped!
Here’s my shortcode to display the tile plus directory:
[connections image_width=150 image_height=150 card_width=160 card_height=180 enable_website_link=FALSE show_phone_numbers=FALSE show_email=FALSE]
