When you’re making a site responsive you don’t want images to have a set width and height, so to remove these from your them you will…

Add this to your functions.php

/*
 * REMOVE WIDTH AND HEIGHT ON IMAGES
 *************************************************************/
add_filter( 'post_thumbnail_html', 'remove_width_attribute', 10 );
add_filter( 'image_send_to_editor', 'remove_width_attribute', 10 );

function remove_width_attribute( $html ) {
   $html = preg_replace( '/(width|height)="\d*"\s/', "", $html );
   return $html;
}

To preserve code added to a comment you can wrap your code in short tags
by using [square brackets]:

  1. PHP use - [php] <?php code here ?> [/php]
  2. CSS use - [css] #code-here {} [/css]
  3. HTML use - [html] <div> code here </div> [/html]
  4. JS use - [js] $(".codeHere") [/js]
