Thumbnail for post in sidebar? (2 posts)

    I'm trying to put thumbnails corresponding to the image/video in each post in the sidebar. The topic has come up before, and there's a clear way to do it -- but it requires you to add a custom thumbnail field to each post. The people using the blog are going to need something that generates a thumbnail automatically, or it will end in tears.

    There are two plugins out there that are supposed to do this: Post Thumb Revisited and Post Thumbs. The trouble is, I can't get either to work -- though since I put the n00b in newbie it may be that I'm just clueless.

    Does anyone have experience getting either of these plugins or an alternative to work?

    Try Recent posts - and read the comments for that plugin and also for Random posts.
    You will probably need to place a piece of code in your themes sidebar.php file
    Hope that helps
