A Question for Ken

  • Anonymous


    I’m helping a guy who I suggested use the “Kalins Post Plugin” for displaying a page of his posts.

    I know it’s difficult without seeing what he’s doing, but he is trying to insert a thumbnail image for each of his posts .

    Here is a link to his current page:


    Any suggestions?

    He needs to add the [post_thumb] shortcode somewhere in the “List item content”, which will display the featured image as a thumbnail. It helps if all the images are the same size, or at least the same proportions. (It’s really difficult to clip a picture that isn’t absolutely positioned using CSS.)



    Thanks Ken.

    I’ll post back shortly.



    His response:

    Did this, and it just shows the URL to the featured image. Not the

    featured image itself. I’ll leave it for now, since like only 3

    people see the site currently.

    Any idea? Check the link again from above. Or should we let him be?

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it has to be wrapped in an <img> tag. Sorry. Should look like this:

    <img src="[post_thumb]" style="whatever;" />



    I still haven’t heard anything back on that last response. I’ll let you know as soon as I do. Also, I sent him the link to your tutorial regarding the plugin. His name, ironically, is Ken.

    Thanks for the help. I’m gonna mark this as resolved for now.



    I am also trying to get an image to display next to my list of posts generated using the “Kalins Post Plugin”

    I have tried the suggestion above, but am not getting any graphic to display – it does not find an image at all. Is [post_thumb] the correct syntax for what I am trying to do ? Or what have I missed please…

    Sorry forgot to add a link:

    I don’t see an image in those posts. Did you include a featured image the plugin can grab?




    Yes – each post has a designated ‘feature image’ – which is displaying in the slider on the home page.
