    I want a plugin or to find a way to manually do this, a plugin would be preferred though, here is what I need:

    A way to get all posts from a category and display them as thumbnails on any page I want. I would also like to display the date and title of each posts with the thumbnails.

    If anyone has a way of doing this, or a plugin solution it would be appreciated soooo much!

    Try this one.

    If you need to insert a widget on the post (page content) instead of the sidebar, might also install this one:

    Hey, thanks for the reply! But that's not really what I'm looking for :(

    I mean, the idea is there, it gives me the posts and dates. But it displays it in a vertical list, has its own background, comments and post author. I don't want all that.

    I'd just like the thumbnail, post title and date.

    Something like this: http://js7.com/videos/

    Thanks a lot though! Any other suggestions guys?

    If you look closely, it does have control to show/hide excerpts, thumbnail, etc.

    To display in a gallery manner, you can just change the block via CSS, by changing the

    display: block

    to

    display: inline-block

    looks like this plugin even allows you to define a CSS file for itself. But if customizing CSS is not desired, then I haven't had luck to find one yet with that kind of layout.

    Thanks for all the help. Yeah, I'm just going to use this plugin and edit it with css. One big issue though: When I installed this plugin, it doesn't allow me to edit any of the parameters for some reason. I can post a pic if you want. Maybe it doesn't work with the newest version of wordpress. Should I try re-installing it?

    Again, thanks for all the help.

    The only options I can edit are the global options

    Sorry, don't have any further tips, because didn't use this plugin myself before.

    You can try to search other using the "post thumbnail" keyword:
