  1. Hello,

    I am new to wordpress and wondering if there is a solution to my problem.

    I have made my blog so that only one post appears per page.
    Now I want to add a page where all posts can be found in thumbnails with no description or title or anything like that, just the images (all my posts have images).

    Is this possible to do?

    Also, I dont have a menu. Is it possible to just add a button to this page?

    The blog I need help with is the-apposite.com.

  2. Hi there,

    Many of our themes will allow you to display a number of recent posts along with featured images (the image you choose to associate with a given post). Here's a link to all of our themes: http://theme.wordpress.com/

    And for more information on Featured Images: http://en.support.wordpress.com/featured-images/

    By default, all pages (but not posts) will be added to your site's menu. You can also create a custom menu, which allows you to add or delete content and rearrange it: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

  3. Hey @Jackiedana

    I don't think this answers my questions :/

    I already have a theme I am using Twenty Eleven..
    I know about featured images but I don't think that this is what I need.

    As for pages, I don't have nor want to have a menu on my blog since there is nothing I want to put on it.

    I only want a page to show all of my post images as thumbnails. - this can open when a button is pressed if that is something I can have.
    I'd like this to be at the bottom so it's out of the way and just say "View all posts".

    Thank you

  4. To me it seems like this is something you can have, but only by manually creating an index page and putting in each link every time.

  5. No, jackiedana's response doesn't answer your questions. I have replied to your main question in another thread: you can do what you're looking for if you use the display-posts shortcode. Since you didn't try this, I'm assuming you found the Support doc I linked to hard to understand - and I don't blame you!

    So:
    1) You edit each post and set its image as a featured image.
    2) You create a page in Pages > Add New, and paste the display-posts shortcode as its content. What you describe requires this version of the shortcode:
    [display-posts posts_per_page="-1" image_size="thumbnail" wrapper="div"]
    3) Since you want no titles, and assuming you want the thumbnails to show up in rows, you paste this in the CSS editor:

    .display-posts-listing .title {
    	display: none;
    }
    .display-posts-listing img {
    	float: left;
    	margin: 0 10px 10px 0;
    }

    (Depending on the aspect ratios of the images, you might need some further CSS editing.)
    4) You go to Settings > Media and set the width you prefer for the thumbnail option.

    As for the "button", you just need a link to that page in a footer widget. What exactly do you mean by button? an image link, or a text link styled a certain way?

  6. @justpi - omg you are literally saving my life. Thank you so much for all your support I really do appreciate it. Is there some kind of feedback form for users or something that I can fill to promote you?!?!!? THANK YOU!
    As you guessed-I found the support page too complicated but this all helps OH SO MUCH! I will try it now and let you know how it goes!

    as for the button, I am just looking for a link to say "see all posts" or something similar to that. and I would like to place it below and in the middle of the "Older Posts" - "Newer Posts" links.
    Does that make any sense?

    Thank you again @justpi !!!

  7. @justpi

    It all works perfectly so far! you deserve a medal! Thank you so much!

    The only thing left now is re-positioning the link on the are where I want it. (between the "Older Posts" and "Newer Posts" links but on the line BELOW them those two links if that's possible and if it makes ANY sense!

    Thoughts?

    Thank you again!

  8. on the area*

  9. Hi theappositeak,

    I apologize for not getting the gist of what you were asking, and I appreciate justpi's assistance here. :)

  10. Hi @jackiedana.
    It's ok! Justpi has helped a lot! now if only I can get my last question answered then I'm done and the blog will be ready! yay!

  11. @theappositeak: You're welcome.

    If you just need a text link, you'll create it in a Text widget. Basic coding here:
    http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/04/01/codes-useful-for-text-widgets/
    After you create the link, you can use CSS editing to change its styling and/or position it somewhere else. But I don't agree with this:

    between the "Older Posts" and "Newer Posts" links but on the line BELOW them

    The first and the last page of posts display the one of the two navigation links only, so the link to the thumbnails page will look unbalanced on those two pages. I suggest you simply add the Text widget to Footer Area Two, and move its current widget to Footer Area Three.

  12. Excellent! I followed your advice! I think it looks good now because everything is aligned in terms of the green text under Archive and green text under contact. and the boxes below subscribe and search. I am hoping that as the months progress and posts begin to become reality that the Archive widget doesn't throw everything out of balance when it shows more than 1 month.

    I guess I will see how it goes in a few days when we are in June.

    Thank you for everything @justpi !

  13. You're weclome!

    To prevent the Archives widget from throwing things out of balance, you can open it and select the option "Display as dropdown".
