Positioning thumbnails/featured images technique needed

Recommended Posts

samplethumbs.gifThanks to other posts and poking at the theme I've gotten thumbnail images to post in excepts . . . Am I right that this is typically done via "featured image"? (I ask because it'll make my users do two images.) Is there an easy way to adjust the position of the thumbnail featured image relative to the headline and post text? (see sample) My system default put the thumbnail featured image aligned next to and to the left of both the headline and except. Per my sample, can it be moved to show under the headline and to the left of the excerpt? Can the excerpt wrap around the image?

You would need to edit the template.postloop.php file. Copy it to the Base child theme and edit it there. move this block of code: ` <?php if(pagelines_show_thumb( get_the_ID() )): // Thumbnails ?>

<?php endif; ?> ` above this: `<?php if(pagelines_show_excerpt( get_the_ID() )): // Post Excerpt ?>`

is there any possibility to have the full size image in the post (i.e. 500x300)? how can I do that. It would be easy using the medium size image, instead of the thumbnail in the post page. But I don't know how to do that.

I'm new . . . But, my seanse is for thumbnails, you use "featured image" that shows in the lower right of the post dialog. Kinda hidden and it has some constraints for the art sizing, so what your image proportions. You may want to pre-size the images as it will get clipped.(And in one of the layout control areas, you'll need to say where/what type of pages/posts you want featured images to show.) For images in a post, that appears to me to be a norm and the buttons for that are above the text editing buttons. The image adjusting pop-up can be slow opening and you need to drill into a few features for "advanced" etc. but it seems to work for insert of an image. Advanced may not be obvious but allows adding spacing around the image etc. I'm a little foggy on the nuance of the two upload modes/insert into post vs insert into library . . . It seems to take virtually any size art and allows for setting word wrap.

cmunns . . . Thanks for the code help . . . but I'm a noob on this end of things. Is there a guide for noobs on how this editing can be done, best-practices for NOT blowing stuff up? I'm not a php guy yet and my CSS has been via using Dreamweaver as a tool, rather then fully "knowing" CSS. I made the mistake of using 'reset' in the theme, assuming it only imaged the area I was it and it reset the whole theme. If I do the editing you suggest, should I ftp down/sync my online version of the site . . . make a backup copy of the file I'm going to noob-edit and reupload it? (But have the backup in reserve?

Bob, That is probably a good idea if you're worried about making a mistake, that way you can revert back to the working copy and start from scratch if need be.
