    Hi All,
    I am pretty new to wordpress but I am trying to set up my site so that with every post, it has a thumbnail with the title. I want it to look pretty. I have downloaded the widget "Special Recent Posts" which should allow me to do so...

    my site http://geographicalcure.org
    is set up with categories. I do not have any "pages" on the site, just posts within the categories and with every new post, it shows up on the home page. When I install the widget, the post goes to the sidebar... As you can see on the site.... Do i need a "Front Page template".. I'd rather not have one... Maybe it just comes down to having pages??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    If you have questions about a plugin, it's best to post on the plugin's specific sub-forum - in this case, here:

    EDIT - but the widget plugin only puts posts in the sidebar - that's how it works.

    Have you set featured images for your posts - that might be what you need to do. When you are making a post - look on the right side of the screen for the featured image box - select the image you want there.
