    Hi all,

    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.

    Is your issue regarding a particular plugin?

    I really don't know. like I said, I very new to WordPress. I have looked all through the tutorials I could find on WordPress, but I can't see how to do what I want to do.
    You can see an examples of what I want, but I did using Drupal, at http://www.shadytreepress.com/book-category/fiction, or http://www.frankieybailey.com/amateur-sleuth.
    I set up a custom content for the WordPress site called Books that has all the info, but I need to display on a page the books as thumbnails, title, and maybe the published date.
