Images not displaying on pages (4 posts)

    Yo! I'm not exactly a noob to WP, but have reached a ceiling with my skills. I'm currently putting together a site that has pages which filter blog posts based on categories.

    The site under construction is here: http://mariachiprime.com

    I've set up pages to filter posts with the plugin WP Posts Filter, which is all but working perfectly, except that imagery associated with a post does not appear to be displaying properly.

    See the example page: http://mariachiprime.com/entertainment

    I can edit the HTML pages, but am confused as to what exactly I should add to the page.php for that page. I just need a thumbnail of the Featured Image to show next to the post title, with a teaser etc - in much the same way as each post is listed on the home page.

    I feel I'm punching above my weight to attempt this, so I'm deferring to all you folks with way more skills than I. Little help, plz?

    Hi markgambino,
    WP Posts Filter doesn't show the images because it uses the get_the_excerpt() function of WP to generate the excerpt for a post (if there is no). This function cleans the post contents off of the html-tags. That's why you can't see in-post images. So, to get images display working, you need to add your own excerpt in the post. You'll probably need to switch on the display of a post excerpt in the post edit page. To do so, go to Screen settings in the add/edit post page (above the page) and check the excerpt checkbox.

    Thanks, Oleg. I've checked the Excerpt box and added a custom excerpt to a post on that page, but imagery is still not displaying. Did I do something wrong?
