    Here is what bugging my head:
    when I am going to the video category page, the image (thumbnail for YouTube video) is not showing up. When I'm clicking on the video title, it is opening fine in the page.

    Following is the code I'm using.
    <iframe width="590" height="472" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/mUlN78N1NN8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Can you tell me how you create thumbnail gallery?
    I'll appreciate your help.

    Does your theme's category template file use the_excerpt() instead of the_content()?

    Please click on the link above! My question is how to create the "Thumbnail Image"

    You'll see a headline "How to live before you die – Steve Job explains"

    But you don't see the Thumbnail image. Landing page is working fine but what I want is that thumbnails show up in the category page.

    Hi Esmi!
    I'm not that expert of WP. In fact, this is my first project. I'll appreciate your help :-)

    Try editing the relevant template file(s) and replacing <?php the_excerpt();?> with <?php the_content();?>.
