  1. Allright, go easy on me, I'm very new to all of this... :)
    I would like to arrange most of my pages (except home and single) to show the post title, then the excerpt, then a thumbnail. Is there a way to do this? I've been learning a lot about hooks and filters, and I almost have my head wrapped around it, I think... But I keep getting title, thumb, then excerpt... Any help is appreciated! The site I'm working on is here: www.beta.alohastatemedia.com
    Thanks again everyone!

  3. woo hooo! finally figured it out. so, I guess the loop builds the $post and all I had to do was rearrange the php to append the excerpt before it appended the thumbnail. Code below just incase anyone needs it:

    // New content loop - sets thumbs to wide and cropped
    function childtheme_override_content() {
    		global $thematic_content_length;
    
    		if ( strtolower($thematic_content_length) == 'full' ) {
    			$post = get_the_content(more_text());
    			$post = apply_filters('the_content', $post);
    			$post = str_replace(']]>', ']]>', $post);
    		} elseif ( strtolower($thematic_content_length) == 'excerpt') {
    			$post = '';
    			$post .= get_the_excerpt();
    			$post = apply_filters('the_excerpt',$post);
    			if ( apply_filters( 'thematic_post_thumbs', TRUE) ) {
    				$post_title = get_the_title();
    				$size = apply_filters( 'thematic_post_thumb_size' , array(730,200) );
    				$attr = apply_filters( 'thematic_post_thumb_attr', array('title'	=> 'Go to ' . $post_title) );
    				if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) {
    					$post .= '<a class="entry-thumb" href="' . get_permalink() . '" title="Go to ' . get_the_title() . '" >' . get_the_post_thumbnail(get_the_ID(), $size, $attr) . '</a>';
    					}
    			}
    		} elseif ( strtolower($thematic_content_length) == 'none') {
    		} else {
    			$post = get_the_content(more_text());
    			$post = apply_filters('the_content', $post);
    			$post = str_replace(']]>', ']]>', $post);
    		}
    		echo apply_filters('thematic_post', $post);
    }

  4. you should also be able to filter it if you are only changing the one conditional. untested...

    //modify default Thematic excerpts
    function childtheme_excerpts($post) {
    	global $thematic_content_length;
    
    	if ( strtolower($thematic_content_length) == 'excerpt' ) {
    	        $post = '';
    		$post .= get_the_excerpt();
    		$post = apply_filters('the_excerpt',$post);
    			if ( apply_filters( 'thematic_post_thumbs', TRUE) ) {
    				$post_title = get_the_title();
    				$size = apply_filters( 'thematic_post_thumb_size' , array(730,200) );
    				$attr = apply_filters( 'thematic_post_thumb_attr', array('title'	=> 'Go to ' . $post_title) );
    				if ( has_post_thumbnail() ) {
    					$post .= '<a class="entry-thumb" href="' . get_permalink() . '" title="Go to ' . get_the_title() . '" >' . get_the_post_thumbnail(get_the_ID(), $size, $attr) . '</a>';
    					}
    
    	}
    	return $post;
    
    }
    
    add_filter('thematic_post', 'childtheme_excerpts');
