This plugin gives you access to two a simple shortcake to display post thumbnails in a grid. The plugin uses the featured image thumbnail if one exists. If one does not exist, the title will be displayed instead. Use the category feature to ensure that all of the posts that you want to display in this manner have thumbnails.
This plugin is not designed to show several pages of thumbnails, rather it is designed to allow you to embed thumbnails into any page or to display a subset of thumbnails on a page. To show more thumbnails on a page than the default value Blog pages show at most, use a fixed value for posts_per_page or try setting the posts_per_page value to ’999′.
Your theme must be enabled for post thumbnails.
POSTS & PAGES
You can use any of the parameters listed in the wordpress codex.
Click here to see the WordPress Codex for Posts
Here are some of the most common paramaters:
cat = (*Use cat instead of category for posts if category does not work) category id. To view the category id, go to your post categories, edit the category and look in the browser address bar for the category id. If you don’t see it, click your mouse in the address bar.
It should look something like this. The category id is 7:
[[your site goes here]]/wp-admin/edit-tags.php?action=edit&taxonomy=category&tag_ID=7&post_type=post
posts_per_page – the number of posts to display. The default is -1. This causes the post count to default to the value in Blog pages show at most.
post_type – the type of posts to display. The default is ‘post”. Enter any type that supports thumbnails. Obviously, you want to have featured images set for all of the posts that you are displaying in this grid. You can use ‘page’ here if your theme supports thumbnails on pages. You can enter custom post types, like ‘events’ in this section too.
orderby – Sort retrieved posts by parameter. The default is none.
order – ‘DESC’ or ‘ASC’
tag – use the tag name, not the tag id.
[thumbnailgrid cat=’1′ posts=’5′ type=’post’ order_by=’author’ order=’ASC’]”
Will display the thumbnails for the 5 most recent posts from the category with the id of 1 sorted by the author name in ascending order
Will display the thumbnails using the default value in the Reading settings Blog pages show at most.
[bkthumbnailgrid category=”4″ limit=”5″]
displays the thumbnails for the first 5 bookmarks where the link category is 4.
[bkthumbnailgrid orderby=”owner” order=”DESC”]
displays all thumbnails for all bookmarks ordered descending by the name of the owner.
Most properties can be set in the style sheet or in the custom css module for your theme. The following settings are shortcode settings that apply to individual grids. Note that for width and height values you may use any valid unit of height: px, cm, %, etc. Note: Media Image sizes are configured in the wordpress admin panel under Settings/Media. The default thumbnail size is 150px by 150px. The style sheet is configured to handle the default thumbnail size. To properly display your images, you must modify the height and witdth in the thumbanil shortcode or the style sheet.
