The theme (look and feel) used for Sterling Adventures has been developed with lots of love and care! Although it probably still isn’t anywhere near perfect (or even working in some places – software is never bug-free), but I am fairly proud of it. 😳 So, I think some of it is now at a point where it’s worth shouting about, and possibly sharing…
One aspect of the look and feel is having a thumbnail image in the excerpt shown on the index page. There isn’t any rocket science here – it’s simply up to the post author to provide the image (and text) in the optional excerpt in WordPress’ write a post form. However, the “trick” bit is to make that thumbnail image a hyper-link to the post. I’ve done this with a simple WordPress plug-in called ‘Image Link‘. This is available as a download here.
All I ask is that you leave your greeting card here (i.e. leave a comment 😯 ) and credit the widget (i.e. include a link to this page) on your blog.
Just put the plug-in into your plug-in directory (if this doesn’t make sense it probably isn’t something you should be trying 🙂 ) and activate it. Any excerpts with images (using
<img /> tags) will have the image wrapped up as a hyper-link to the post’s permalink. Making them clickable…
But please note I will ask for a donation before I’ll look at “how to” questions, I can’t teach PHP programming for free.
