    Hi, I'd like to have a picture for every post like in the image I've linked. Am I right in thinking this could be done with a custom field?

    So I just make myself a custom field for the post image, reference it in the right place in the theme php format the css in the right way and thats it? Then, I can just paste in the url for the right image in the custom field for every post I make and its as simple as that?

    Hi, just coming to say I found the answer. Normally, custom fields are displayed as a list. To get more control over how your data is displayed, use the "get custom field values" plugin here:

    My god! I just spent all day getting it to work with a custom field. Damn. I feel achievement, and I also feel a waste of time.

    Hmm... is there any real advantage of using post-image now I have a custom field and layout set up?
