Hi, sort of dense with the thematic child theme functions, filters, etc. Especially since I don't want to touch the theme page templates. So Justin Tadlock's Get The Image plugin, which I have installed and activated, requires a call within the loop. So in theory, if I wanted the category archive posts to grab the image and show it, instead of just showing the excerpt, I would have to open up my
category.php file and pop
<?php get_the_image(); ?>
somewhere inside the category loop. But even if I copied the thematic
category.php into my own theme, the file has no place where it would make sense to insert the image script.
My fledgeling blog is here. I want the "drawings" and "paintings" category archives to show thumbnail images instead of excerpts. I also want archives for certain tags to show thumbnails instead of excerpts. So I am completely stumped: how do I make a function to replace the usual post excerpt with the "get the image" script for these instances?
Many thanks in advance.
