    Then try this plugin, it's made for 1.5:

    http://dev.wp-plugins.org/file/category-images/trunk/category-images.php

    I might try it myself, but I've seen several posts asking for this, and so I just browsed the repository. Was updated 2 weeks ago it seems. Sounds promising ;)

    Works well, except I'm getting "/category/" for the url, not the correct "/category/foo/", can't figure out why

    I don't know if this is a good place to ask but maybe someone with expierence with this plugin can give me a couple pointers. I just installed this plugin and put the following code in my template

    Replaced the_category(', ') with <?php c2c_the_category_image(', ') ?>, as per the read me. I have the images uploaded to the proper directory (/wp-images) and I think I have the names done correctly (renaming to those nice-names), but I get nothing. Viewing the source shows that there are no broken images beyond Filed under, which is where it should appear... just blank space. Could anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

  5. Oops, the note about the directory in the plugin's description wasn't updated to reflect a change with the latest release. The image directory the plugin uses by default is wp-content/images. You can use wp-images if you like, you would just need to specify the appropriate argument.

    I'm using the following code:

    <?php c2c_the_category_image('', '', 'gif', '/graphics/')?>

    How can I make the image "float left?"

  8. In the style.css file for your theme, add the following:

    .catimage { float: left; }

    Just checked it using IE and the images don't appear. They look fine in Firefox.

    i have the plugin working - it's pretty damn good:)

    mdlewis11 - make sure your page is validating, this will solve a lot of problems, seems you have 318 errors:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.slashjoke.com%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=%28detect+automatically%29&ss=1&outline=1&verbose=1

    If you fix those, I'm sure it will work properly. The plugin works in IE and FF for fme - though you are right in saying it doesn't do the same fo ryour site. FIx errors, problem (possibly) solved.

    Ok, I fixed all the errors. The page is now valid code. But the images still don't appear in IE. Any more ideas?

    The wierd thing is, IE knows the image should be there. I can right click the blank space and save the image to my desktop. I can then view the image in a graphics viewer.
