Pulling images from posts (1 post)

    Greetings all.....

    I'd like a bit of advice from you lovely people, if I may. I'm trying to pull the images from each individual post, display them as a thumbnail, and use that thumbnail as a link to the post the image was pulled from. I've had a look at this thread http://wordpress.org/support/topic/140609?replies=48 and that's been useful, but it's marked as resolved, hence this new thread.

    Here's the code I'm using

    <?php if ( $images = get_children(array(
    		'post_parent' => get_the_ID(),
    		'post_type' => 'attachment',
    		'post_mime_type' => 'image',
    	))) : ?>
    	<ul class="post_list">
    		<?php foreach( $images as $image ) :  ?>
    			<li><?php echo wp_get_attachment_link($image->ID); ?></li>
    		<?php endforeach; ?>
    <?php else: // No images ?>
    	<!-- This post has no attached images -->
    <?php endif; ?>

    All well and good. It pulls the images from the posts, and they become links to the image itself. Being a bit of PHP n00b, what I don't get is:
    a)what is creating the link to the image
    b)how can I make that link a link to the post instead of to the image.
    Is that possible to do?
    Am I asking too much of WordPress?

    Hope someone can give me some advice to save my skull caving in from hitting it against the wall.
