I had posted for help, someone answered with a curt one sentence comment to post a paste bin and links and then disappeared. Weird and strange - so I resolved that I thought I would post this.
I am using a theme called CoverWP.
All of my images link to the article except the ones on the front page. I have a static page that shows post from a number of categories.
When you mouse over the photo a pop up shows up with the file name, I want it to go to the permalink.
This was the original line
the_post_thumbnail(array($width,$height), array('alt' => $title));
I changed it to:
?><a" href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(array($width,$height), array('alt' => $title));?><?php
and I didn't get a parse error but the post thumbnails still don't link.
Is there something else I can try? It's driving me crazy.
