comment WordPress Loop Through Particular Pages
I tried the get_pages approach and couldn't get it going - is there anything different I need to do apart from the function call?

thanks for that but just wondering, how can I access a post thumbnail that I have setup as a custom field of 'thumbnail' using your approach. Thanks.

comment Dynamically Populating Image/Excerpt/LInks from Pages in WordPress
Thanks Milo but can I ask you a few queries, how does the_post_thumbnail() function work - does it just grab any image attached to that page id? Also, how does the_excerpt() function work - say I just want to pick up the first 50 chars of the page id, which may consist of two paragraphs in that 50 chars? Does a substr() need to be performed or does the excerpt get placed elsewhere? Thanks.
