How to do thumbnails? (3 posts)

    Hi, my theme's home page has a list of recent posts, with a thumbnail box next to each of the posts. (You can see the site here: wwww.ballardtalisman.org, its a highschool newspaper) However, none of these boxes actually display any thumbnails. I'm not really sure where to even start on this problem, I've looked for help in the wordpress codex and forums and found nothing. Thanks for any advice!!

    Themes may do this differently from one to another. Some use the custom fields normal area and some have alternate input areas, etc.

    Most likely, it will involve you inputting the url of a featured image into the custom fields.

    Sometimes the theme will just grab the first image that is attached to a post or page without you having to do anything but upload an image.

    You will want to look for any documentation from the theme designer.

    The src="" property of your <img/> tag isn't defined. Go look in your theme's index.php file and look at what's in the "src" of the loop (in the "postcontent" <div>).
