    Hi Kriesi,

    Is it possible to include an image preview to posts appearing in an Archive list view?

    For example, when I click a category link I get an Archive list of posts in that category, but the list is text-only. Is it possible to add a small thumbnail or medium-sized image to this? Or is it possible to view an Archive list in grid view with medium images (as with the portfolio)?

    Thanks for your support!



    You need to modify archive.php to accomplish this. Open it up and just after this code:

    while (have_posts()) : the_post();

    add this code:

    // check if we got a previe picture, and which one should be taken
    // (image resizing with "tim thumb" on? then we can take the big one and resize it)
    $preview_small = get_post_meta($post->ID, "_preview_small", true);
    $preview_medium = get_post_meta($post->ID, "_preview_medium", true);
    $preview_big = get_post_meta($post->ID, "_preview_big", true);

    $preview = $preview_medium;
    $link_url = $preview_big;
    $lightbox = 'singlepost';
    $link = true;
    //change if necessary:

    // resizing? => take next sized picture
    if ($k_option['general']['tim'] == "1" && $preview_medium == "")
    $preview = $preview_big;

    // no bigpicture? => no lightbox
    if ($preview_big == "") { $lightbox = ''; $link = true; $link_url = get_permalink(); }
    // the kriesi_build_image function used here checks if the image should be resized.
    // the function is located in framework/helper_functions

    $preview = kriesi_build_image(array('url'=>$preview,
    'height'=> '250',
    'width'=> '250',

    You then need to add this code:

    echo $preview; // echo the preview image

    immediately before this code:


    To adjust the image size, change the value of height and width (both currently 250).


    Thank you! This worked perfectly.
