    I'm using a Thematic child theme. I'd like to show thumbnails with the excerpts on the Category pages, but NOT on the main post page. How do I do this?

    I've put the following code in my functions.php and unfortunately I can't get it to work.

    add_theme_support('post-thumbnails');
    
    	set_post_thumbnail_size( 250, 250, true ); // 250 pixels wide by 250 pixels tall, hard crop mode
    
    function my_post_title($title) {
    	if (is_category()) {
    		return get_the_post_thumbnail(NULL, 'thumbnail') . $title;
    	} else {
    		return $title;
    	}
    }
    add_filter('thematic_postheader_posttitle', 'my_post_title');

    Thank you!!

  3. Hi rkread,

    This code is fine. I tested it and it works for me. Here's my usual list of annoyingly simple questions:

    1. Have you made sure that your child theme is the active theme?
    2. Have you added a post thumbnail in the write panel?
    3. Have you edited the functions.php in the active theme?

    Gene,

    Thank you very much for responding. I appreciate the simple questions. I realized I was testing it with a post that uses a NextGen Gallery, which, unfortunately still doesn't work. When I just retested with another post and a regular, single image, it worked.

    There is no "Use as thumbnail" link in the "Add an Image" pane when trying to select an image from a NextGen gallery. I realize I should probably look elsewhere for the answer to this question but if you happen to know--I'll be watching this space.

    In terms of the thumbnail's placement in the post--should I use css for that?

    Thanks again for your help.

    I'd like to customize the placement of the post thumbnails on the category page. Assuming I"ll need to put the thumbnails in a DIV to style with CSS, what is the code needed to do that and how do I integrate it with the code that I'm currently using (see above)?

    Again, patience for PHP newbies much appreciated. I'm fine with CSS, just getting familiar with PHP however. Thanks!

  6. @rkread: If it's any help, I believe WordPress does add an automatic class(es) tag to the post thumbnail: attachment-post-thumbnail and wp-post-image so you could get away with having no div tag.

    Otherwise, maybe could consider:

    if (is_category()) {
    		$title = '<div class="something">' . get_the_post_thumbnail(NULL, 'thumbnail') . get_the_title() . '</div>';
    	return $title;

    @flick: thanks for the advice. unfortunately, couldn't get either approach to work for me.

    maybe my css skills don't go deep enough--but I couldn't get the entry title and text to wrap the thumbnail image for some reason.

    as for the php, that particular snippet does create a div for the img, but it wraps the post title in the div with it and removes its style.

    Any other suggestions? thanks again.

    Greetings Guys,

    Tried out the code above. The code completely replaces the post title with the post thumbnail. How can I display both the post title, then the post thumbnail, then the post excerpt?

    @lqunta: since this code worked for me I'm not sure if I have the skills to figure out your specific issue, but you may want to check out these related threads that helped me:
