    Hey guys. I’m wanting to create a list of categories in WordPress ( for car parts ) and have them show up with a thumbnail. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?


    No one has any suggestions for how I can accomplish this?


    I have been wondering how to achieve this as well. But haven’t got a clue. I think you would have to add custom fields for the category pages (not sure how to do that) and then attach images to each category.

    Any thoughts people?



    i’m not exactly clear what you want, from what you wrote… but there is something you can do in terms of showing a different picture on the page for each category

    for example there is this code that you put infront of the loop in category.php etc…


    Latest News

    People getting hurt and embarrassed

    These are featured posts

    This is some generic text to describe all other category pages,
    I could be left blank

    this finds out which category you are looking at with for example… (is_category(‘news’)) – and shows a particular message as a result.

    * i am using %/postname/% at the end of my permalinks so if you are not doing that, you will have a category number in place of ‘news’ etc..


    If you are trying to add a different picture depending on what category you are viewing, you can replace the content of the <p> tags with <img src="blahblah" /> and do it that way.

    I don’t know if that is what you are looking for, but i thought i would chime in, just in case ;)
