    hey
    heres my problem...
    my site is just videos, so on the archives page should it have the video there too or should it just be a list of the topic names?

    Depends what you want to do? I'm in the middle of putting together a video site and I'm thinking of the post title (topic name) right next to a thumbnail of the video. I plan to use the_excerpt for this. Imagine yourself as a user of your system and you want to find a video fast. What's the most convenient way you see that happening? Listing the video right on the archive page or listing the title? Which is the quickest to scan down? It's really up to you.

    hey
    well if you do the thumbnail thing, how are you going to get the thumbnails? via printscreen or plugin?

    Oh, I'll just make smaller versions of each of my screengrabs and do it manually.

    You could just let WordPress do it for you. When you upload an image with the post, it shows up in the upload browser. If you drag the image into the post area, it's a thumbnail. That's the quick way of doing it.

    Since I'll want more control, though, I'll just make them all myself and put that info into the Excerpt field.
