Support » Fixing WordPress » Make all images in posts a href to the_permalink()

  • Resolved henrylemmon


    I managed to surround the_content() in the loop.php whith a href pointing to the_content and it made the text in the post a link to the single post, but I just want to make the image in the body of the post to be a link not the text.

    I allready have the featured image pointing to its respective post, but not the image that would be inserted into the body of the post.

    thank you

  • Just use the_permalink to link to the post within the loop. So it would look something like:

    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></a>

    Just make sure you close the link with </a> before you introduce the text into the loop.

    I allready have that done for the featured image I am talking about the image that would be placed into the body of the post. see code..

    So you’d like to isolate the image that is in the body of the post and make that a link to the post it is an excerpt of?

    Yes, would that be practical?

    What might be more practical is to use a plugin like Multiple Post Thumbnails ( and set up a second post thumbnail that you can then incorporate into the loop and link to the page more easily.

    I don’t know if there’s a way to do it using the image from the body.

    Yea you are right, and if we could do anything to the image how would we target it in css say if we want to set a border,

    so just add

    `add_image_size( ‘small’, 75, 75, true);
    add_image_size( ‘medium’, 280, 280, true);
    add_image_size( ‘large’, 616, 462, true);`

    into the functions.php and then

    <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"
    	<?php the_post_thumbnail('small')?>

    into the loop and choose featured image in the edit post I think that may do what the plugin does.
    Thank you.

    Thank You

    I am using my front page as a static page and my blog is named blog. how can I run a conditional to check if the blog page is loaded so I can exclude one of the category’s from displaying in the blog page?

    	if ( is_home()) {
    	query_posts($query_string . '&cat=-17&posts_per_page=3' );

    the above code is in the codex but it does not work for me, it just performs the same query over and over and offers me older posts -> and newer posts -> links and the older post link leads to the 404, mabye the query_string var is not storing the prev query info?
