First of all, I would like to thank the writer of post-image plug in for the time he spent on this script and sharing with us. I was not able to use it so far, But I am sure many do. I was hoping that the writer or anyone with a knowledge of it can assist me and answer a few questions that I have as I only have basic knowledge of scripting.
Our website is a sporting website and the url of front page is:
As you can see, we have word press showing up in the body of our front page, including the images. We use FCKeditor to post images.
What I want to do is to make the images appear as thumbnails in the latest news section with full image appearing when one clicks on a title to read the whole news. Something like the following:
Please notice that I want the images to appear where there is an X as thumbnails of around 120*100 pixels. (Please disregard the text malalignment.)
Now, for our current front page we use the following command to call the post content and the images:
$textfive = substr((strip_tags($rowfive['post_content'],'<img>,')),0,380) ;
echo " ".$textfive."... <span class=\"smallfont\">more ...</span>" ;
This is a strip tag. the problem is, I cant separate the images from the text. they go together.
Now to my question. Does post-image do what I aimed to do as explained above?
If yes, I have went through the instructions. Uploaded the post image php under appropriate place and it shows up fine under plug ins and I can activate it. My problem starts there. There is a talk about "The Loop". I read the article about it, but still I have no clue where I can find it. When that issue is solved, where and what do I put the command that makes thumbnails of those images corresponding to each post?
I had a technical person who did stuff like that for me. I learned quite abit of scripting in the past few months thanks to people like you. But I can neither get hold of my technical person, nor my knowledge has become sufficient enough to answer the above questions.
I would really really appreciate any help that I can get in this matter.Thank you so very much.
We are using wordpress version 2 and the template we use is connections 1.0. I dont know if with our setup, template matters or not at all.
