I am trying to create a Archive page with a list of all my posts with thumbnail and a small excerpt underneath.

kind of like what this guys is doing


I actually followed his method and found out after some screwing around that he is calling thumbs with custom field thumb value

I was hoping to pull the thumbs from my featured thumbnails images as I dont want to go into every post and add a thumbnail.

so basically 1. Create a thumbnail list like u see in that dudes link 2. Be able to size the thumnbnails

Any thoughts, take in mind I am not a programming genous:)

You can use the code on the site you linked to with post thumbnails, if you change one line.

Instead of

<img src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumb', true) ?>" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" />


<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>

See the Codex for more information.

  • thanks I did find that as well and got it to work with some tweaking with image sizes and a regeneration thumb plugin as well.
