    Hello! I would like to insert a thumbnail image in the post preview but when you get inside the post the image size should be bigger than the thumbnail preview.

    How can i do that?



    to be honest I don’t know an user friendly solution for this problem too. I can imagine that it’s possible with some php coding and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/shortcode-exec-php/ or http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/exec-php/ to display different thumbnails by using conditional tags but inside of (custom) queries they don’t work well and can output false positives. Overall I don’t know an reliable and easy way to implement this feature.


    I want to do this (http://www.nethall.gr).. The homepage has a preview of the post and then when you get into the post there is the full text and the original size of the image… I know that it is easy but i can’t find the way to do this.. I know that the thumbnail can be inserted with custom fields but i try it so many times and i don’t have what i want…


    You can hardcode/use post meta values instead of the featured image but the image wouldn’t be part of the post preview itself then (part of the text content). If you refer to a different featured image for previews you can implement this feature by editing index.php (and archive.php).


    $medium_prev_image = display_featured_media($counter);


    if(get_post_meta($post->ID, 'preview_image', true)){
    $medium_prev_image = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'preview_image', true);
    $medium_prev_image = display_featured_media($counter);

    and for portfolio posts don’t forget to follow the instructions posted here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/post-problem
