Excerpts with images in category view (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I just changed my category and search views to have only the excerpts. I prefer that as it's easier for readers to navigate. I am wondering if there is any way to add images to the excepts in those views, rather than just having text.

    I know you can do this by switching code to "the_content...", but I am not interested in having the whole post show up. I searched the forums and plugins and haven't found anything.

    Any advice?

    Thanks!!

    you could consider using the 'featured image' to add an image - http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails

    or a plugin to extract whatever image is in the post, for example http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/get-the-image/
