This is my first posting here, as I'm brand new to WordPress. I have been designing using Drupal for years, but one on my old customers insisted I do her new design in WordPress (no idea why).
I figured out how to customize a theme to look the way I wanted it to. She is an Author, so I installed the Custom Content Type Manager plugin, then added a custom content called 'books'. Within the books content type I added a custom media field for the book cover. After a lot of reading, I was able to make pages display each individual book entry, including the cover. What I can't figure out how to do is make a archive page showing a list of each book including a small cover, title, and short blurb for each book. I figured out how to make a custom archive page using archive-books.php, which shows the the individual books, but only the titles, and blurb. I can't find how to include a small version of the cover with each book.
Thank you for you patience.
