    HI i am about to switch a static site to wordpress and i was wandering if anyone can suggest a plug-in that would help me accomplish this layout ” “.

    The client is about to add more stuff which he would like to have in the same look like a page with thumbnails separated by category, and the thumbnail should link to a details page, now here is my question is there a way to set up a template so he can add the items himself?

    I am new to wordpress but i figure there must be an easy way to get this done.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.



    …so it’s imposable to do?


    It’s not impossible no.

    My suggestion would be to set those categories as post categories. Then you can create posts as ‘details pages’ with thumbnails using any of the various post thumbnail methods. First one that comes to mind is simply using the ‘featured image’ function that comes with WP. “” Otherwise a quick jaunt through Google will show lots of ways to do post thumbnails.

    I’m not a WP expert so I’m’ sure there might be easier ways. Hopefully someone else will chime in as well.


    I think Scott’s idea would work, you could query posts from one specific category in each section to show on that page so nothing else will show other than what you tell it to. I don’t think there is a plug in for what you want though, that would be really complicated.
