Support » Themes and Templates » Would like my template to only show one image per post until clicked

  • I hope there is a wordpress wizard who can help..

    I did post this in the troubleshooting section but think it should belong here?

    My blog i at and what i was after was on my homepage, each entry will show only one image from each post, then you should be able to click and read more, opening a page containing the rest of the images as on this site

    I couldn’t work this out, so created a separate page and linked off the image, which doesn’t work as no comments can be added, and the section header directs you elsewhere.

    If someone could help, i really would appreciate it… It seems like its something straight forward as can see the option for the link in the code, but it just doesnt work…

    Thanks in advance.

    Something like

    <?php if( function_exists( 'add_theme_support' ) ) the_post_thumbnail(); ?>
    <?php the_excerpt();?>
    <a class="more-link" href="<?php the_permalink();?>"><?php _e('Continue reading ') . the_title();?></a>

    in place of <?php the content();?> in your theme’s index.php template file should work.

    Owwweeewooo!! Thanks you,

    will give it a bash in a tick. Thanks again for your help..

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function the_post_thumbnail() in /home/creati20/public_html/ on line 31

    here is the code:

    thanks, sorry mods, had no idea…

    First, open your functions.php
    add this:
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );

    In your index.php find:

    <div class="entry">
            <?php the_content('<b>Read More</b>'); ?>

    Change to something like this:

    <div class="entry">
       <div class="post_thumbnail">
         <?php the_post_thumbnail( 'thumbnail' ); ?>
       </div><!--End .post_thumbnail -->
       <?php the_content('<b>Read More</b>'); ?>

    And you should get the thumbnail. You must first, however add a thumbnail by edit the posts.
    If you dont know how to do that. Read this:

    Post won’t inter-link with one another unless you manually add the links.

    So I need o create a post, then create an additional page?
    I did this on the current post on my blog, but was only able to achieve this by clicking the image.

    What I was hoping for, which I think is what happens on is when you click the post header, you are redirected to a page with text/images, and a comments box below. At the moment, when the header is clicked, the only thing that comes up is what is on the homepage, I would like there to be a page of all the images from that concert.

    I may have misinterpreted exactly what I wanted to do, if i did, apologies.

    Sorry, if i can add, I am unable to change the link for the header to redirect to a page created with the images on. thanks
