    Hi,

    I have a catergory called Chub which holds 4 descriptions and header
    link which when clicked go to their individual pages.

    When someone clicks on the chub catergory they go this page http://www.fishingchair.org.uk/category/chub/ which displays the 4 descriptions and header links which is a summary of their main page, in this summary page how do I add a thumbnail image next to each description?

    Thanks
    Shebs

    use this code in your loop:

    <?php
    	$images = get_children(
    	array(
    		'post_parent' => $post->ID,
    		'post_status' => 'inherit',
    		'post_type' => 'attachment',
    		'post_mime_type' => 'image',
    		'order' => 'ASC',
    		'orderby' => 'menu_order'
    		)
    	);
    
    	if ( $images ) {
    		$count = 1;
    		foreach ( $images as $id => $image ) {
    			if( $count === 1 ) {
    				$img = wp_get_attachment_thumb_url( $image->ID );
    				$link = get_permalink( $post->ID );
    				print "\n\n" . '<div class="alignleft"><a href="' . $link . '"><img src="' . $img . '" alt="" /></a></div>';
    			}
    			$count++;
    		}
    	}
    ?>

    Here is info on the loop: http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop

    You would add this code somewhere "inside" the loop.

    I would create a new category template for this. If your theme has a category.php file, open it and save as category-###.php

    The ### part should be the category id of the chub category. This way the special code will only be executed when a visitor is viewing the chub category.

    This code works so nicely.

    I used the archive.php to create the category.php template, and just pasted the code after my title (i removed the_time) and before the_content.

    it created the right size thumbnail, left aligned it and everything.

    THANKS!!!!

    heres the whole code i used, looks pretty cool:

    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    
    <div class="category_post">
    
    <h3 id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="<?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>
    
    <?php
    	$images = get_children(
    	array(
    		'post_parent' => $post->ID,
    		'post_status' => 'inherit',
    		'post_type' => 'attachment',
    		'post_mime_type' => 'image',
    		'order' => 'ASC',
    		'orderby' => 'menu_order'
    		)
    	);
    
    	if ( $images ) {
    		$count = 1;
    		foreach ( $images as $id => $image ) {
    			if( $count === 1 ) {
    				$img = wp_get_attachment_thumb_url( $image->ID );
    				$link = get_permalink( $post->ID );
    				print "\n\n" . '<div style="float:left"><a href="' . $link . '"><img src="' . $img . '" alt="" /></a></div>';
    			}
    			$count++;
    		}
    	}
    ?>
    
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>
    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><span style="color:#cc0000">read more</span></a>
    
    <p class="cat_meta"><?php the_time('M j y') ?> | <?php the_tags('Tags: ', ', ', ''); ?> | <?php edit_post_link('Edit', '', ' | '); ?>  <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments »', '1 Comment »', '% Comments »'); ?></p>
    
    <br style="clear:both" />
    
    </div>
    
    		<?php endwhile; ?>

    AND HERES MY CSS:

    /* category page template style */
    .category_post {border:1px solid #eee;
    		margin:20px 0; padding:20px;
    		font-size:14px; line-height:18px;  }
    
    .category_post h3 {padding-bottom:10px;}
    .category_post img {margin-right:20px;}
    .cat_meta {font-size:11px;}
    .cat_meta a {color:blue;}
