Thanks for your reply. How do I also modify the query to excluded specific categories?

Thank you :)
How do I set the size of the thumbnail in the theme/Wordpress settings?January 29, 2012 at 6:25 pm in reply to: Retrieving URL of featured image for a post, in single post view? #60747
The code you gave me displays the image. I don’t want to display it, I just want the URL.
To clarify, this is what I want to do:
On my “homepage” I want the first displayed post (i.e. the most recent published post) to be a the fullsize photo (i.e. 940 wide).
Below it, I want to display the next recent posts (i.e. 2 or 3 in each row).
If using the dynamic template, I select a specific the post I want to display for that first post (i.e. I’d choose the most recent post), and then use the Columns element or Blog element to display the next posts, I’m getting the most recent post shown twice.
The post order isn’t the issue, the issue is that the most recent post would be displayed twice. I don’t want to choose a specific post for that first “one column” because then I’d have to manually change it each time I publish a new post.
I was using the dynamic template, so I wanted to remove the sidebar from the “blog” section. I figured it out though: http://worlddailyphoto.com/ and the alignment seems to be okay…
I’ve figured out how to display 3 columns of archives and no sidebar – I’ve converted the ‘even’ ‘odd’ classes to ‘first’ ‘second’ ‘third’.
However, how do I make the white title area the same height for all items in the row?
For example in the middle of the first row, the title area is taller than the two posts adjacent to it: http://worlddailyphoto.com/category/jordan
Thanks again :)
Yeah, I’d love the archives page with no sidebar. Especially since I’m using it to display photos :) If you find it, let me know!
Would you consider adding this feature? Either in your next update… or for a fee? ;)
@Dude – Yeah, I’ve left the Lightbox effect, only removed the opacity/magnifying glass hover effect so that people aren’t prompted to click (if they click they’ll see the Lightbox)
Thanks for your help guys. Will leave it for now.
@frugally4u – Thanks for trying to help, really appreciate it! I checked the links but they’re for other themes and the files/code mentioned in them aren’t the same as in Shoutbox :(
@rumblefish – That is true, but then readers can’t click the thumbnail to get the single post page either.
For now I’ve removed the hover/magnifying glass effect, so at least people aren’t prompted to click.
I’m using a large image for the single posts and the lightbox actually shows the image in a smaller size than on the page, so that’s why I want to remove the lightbox from single posts. Here’s the a single post, if you’re curious: http://worlddailyphoto.com/india/magnificent-taj-mahal
