Displaying images in categories and archives (3 posts)

    I am running wordpress 2.8 with the "straightforward" theme using it as a photoblog where I upload images from my cell phone to my flicker account and flickr makes the post to my blog. Every post contains a photo. The photo resides on the flicker server, so there is an img tag in each post. when I click on any of my category links, or my archive links just the text of the post and not the photo is displayed. I want the photos to display there as well. can someone recommend how to fix this?
    If needed, I will post a link to my blog.

    Hi there,

    Do you want the Title of the post be replaced with the image or the excerpt?

    In many themes the template files archive.php and category.php use something like <?php the_excerpt(); ?> . Then links, images etc are not shown and only a set number of words. (Which is no so bad for an archive page).
    Use the_content instead or use a plugin like the excerpt re-reloaded where you can set what to show.
