Jon Asked: How to add thumbnails above post on the THiCK theme



I was asked by a reader:

I’m using the THiCK theme for my new design blog. I noticed you were able to add thumbnail images above your blog posts on the home page. What would I need to do to enable this on my blog?

Well Jon, this can be done very simple, since the theme is already using the Tim Thumb script.

What you will need to do is find in your index.php file, the second loop. Which you can find on line 40.

<?php query_posts('offset=1&showposts=' . get_option('woo_other_entries') . '&cat=-' . $GLOBALS['ex_asides'] ); ?>

<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>	

	<div class="post">
		<h2><a title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>" href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
		<div class="post-meta"><?php the_time('j/m/y'); ?> <span>|</span> <?php comments_popup_link('0 Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?></div>
		<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

<?php endwhile; ?>

Now we are going to add in the code. At line 43 we are going to add:

<?php if (get_option('woo_resize')) { // Check if we should use the image resizer ?>
                    <a title="Continue reading this entry..." href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><img src="<?php echo bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/thumb.php?src=<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, "image", $single = true); ?>&amp;h=80&amp;w=280&amp;zc=1&amp;q=90" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" /></a>
                <?php } else { ?>
                    <a title="Continue reading this entry..." href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><img src="<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, "image", $single = true); ?>" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" /></a>
                <?php } ?>

That’s it, just make sure that in the THiCK options panel you choose the “resize” option, or the image might break the layout. Or you may change the this code: $post->ID, "image", to: $post->ID, "image_thumb", and use a separate image for the lower blog.

    I tried this but the the image double up the main featured article. So I have the Large image and then the smaller thumbnail under it. Both lead to the same entry.

      Hmm, that’s seems odd.

    Nevermind, I was inserting on the wrong line. Looks like it was Line 45 for me.

      Oh, Sorry about that. Maybe I shouldn’t write what line it may be on.
      Hope it works out! Just remember to look for the correct php code as well.

    thanks for the post.
    I don’t know much about code, and I’m having the same problem of Thomas.
    Could you show the exacto point to insert the code?

    Worked out nicely. I have another questions where would we go to do this on the actual category post in this theme.

    March 31, 2009 at 12:56 pm

    Oh I got it. I added the same code in the first loop to the archives.php and you got a thumbnail for your category post.

The release of Galleria, a gallery child theme of Hybrid

As the WordPress community grows, so does the amount of available themes. Galleria is a gallery-style child theme for WordPress built on the Hybird theme framework. Originally, this theme was created by Chirs Wallace for the Thematic theme framework and released at Smashing Magazine.



So I am excited to announce another theme release from WPCult and Frosty Web Designs. A few days back, I came across this post at Smashing Magazine.

Just recently we asked you to let us know what theme you would like us to release next. Among numerous comments we found many request for a gallery-theme that could be particularly useful for portfolios and showcases. At the very same time Christopher Wallace has been designing an advanced gallery-WordPress-theme for the design community and Smashing Magazine’s audience. And today finally we are proud to release it – for free, of course.

Well, I liked this theme, and while I am a big fan of the Thematic theme, I know there are many out there who love Hybrid. Hybrid is Justin Tadlocks theme framework, which can be downloaded for free at

Just an FYI, this site is running hybrid as a parent theme. 🙂


I contacted Chris and told him of this theme port I would be doing. After a few days of modifications, bug fixes, and styling, the theme is ready for public release.

While Galleria shares a few qualities with his sibling, the differences are notable in the style, color, and layout throughout the theme, including the theme options.

More info

For more info and documentation, refer to the readme.html file included in the download or visit the Galleria theme page.

Some features

  • dynamic image re-size on a single page.
