How would I place an overlay image over a thumbnail of a certain category.

For example. I have the category "Videos" how would i place a playbutton image over the thumbnail, while making it all link to the post.

But i have different thumbnail sizes as well.


There are many ways to do what you want to do. Here is a tutorial that will show you how to get it done. Just alter the css to fit your needs


as far as linking. You can use WordPress code for that. Such as

 <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><img src="your image with overlay"></a>
