    I have a photoblog. Now maybe I don’t have the right theme for this (Coraline) but I’d love to have a few large thumbnails from past posts near the top of the page that are linked to that post. Right now I have the widget that links to past posts, but I’d like to have pictures there instead. Like a sortof mini gallery widget. Also, it would be nice if the current “image” widget allowed for a slideshow instead of a single image.

    Also a bit of feedback: I don’t like the new reader. I don’t like that people can see all of the images in large thumbnails so they don’t need to go to my actually page to see them. And I don’t like how they can “like” the post without going to the page. I get a bunch of likes, but no page views.

    The blog I need help with is arhphoto.wordpress.com.

    Why don’t you switch themes to one that provides what you are asking for? There are themes that do have post sliders and other ways of featuring posts built-in to the theme.
    photoblogging themes > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/subjects/photoblogging/
    themes with posts sliders> http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/post-slider/
    featured images > http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/featured-images/

    P.S. Flickr widget > http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/flickr-widget/

    You can have a slidehshow in any theme and the Modularity Lite theme has a front page slideshow > http://en.support.wordpress.com/slideshows/

    Thanks! I figured I would have to change themes to get what I want but was hoping for another option. The flickr widget and post slideshow your talking about aren’t quite what I’m looking for so i suppose I’ll start theme shopping.
