I converted it to a masked URL.

 

I'm sure you'll be very happy with SRP.

Hey guys,

 

I'm working on a site where I'd like to display pictures of the posts we create but I can't figure this out for the life of me.  Can someone please be kind enough to tell me what i'm doing wrong?   This should be a very easy feature or hook to add but I can't figure out what to add or where to add it to.

 

the site is here: http://tinyurl.com/lnup7pt and you'll see before the 4 picutres that are right below the slider the posts that are being displayed there.  I'd like to use the featured images that I specified in each post to display.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

 

Sami

Hi Sami,

 

To understand your question, you want the thumbnails to display in each post listed below the gallery.  Is that correct?

 

If so, go to Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Blog And Posts and scroll down, to Post Thumbnail Placement.  Make sure that you have checked Posts/Blog Page and In Post Clips (Magazine Mode).   If you want the thumbnail to appear in other locations, check the appropriate boxes and Save.

Hi Rob,

 

I've already done this way before even thinking about posting in the forum and still didn't have any luck.  I do have a static page selected as my front page and using a plugin to pull the posts in that page in case that helps.

Sami,

 

Which plugin is displaying the posts on your homepage?

 

Have you considered upgrading to PageLines Framework? I'm suggesting this as PlatformPro is now a legacy product and support for it is minimal.  Only myself and one colleague are actually familiar with its workings.

This one: http://wordpress.org...n/posts-in-page

 

Unless if you recommend a different method?!

The plugin I recommend, and use myself, is Special Recent Posts:  http://wordpress.org...l-recent-posts/

 

It is better designed, to have unique classes or IDs for each component, allowing you to resize things, color them, etc., using simple CSS.

hi Rob,

 

That is a GREAT plugin.  Thank you so much.   This issue is not resolved.  Could you be kind enough to remove the URL/Mask where i pasted it above?

 

Thanks
