Need Category Page to Display Posts Like A Gallery

I have seen a couple of threads where people were asking for something like this but the answers either seemed vague or non-existent.

I am trying to figure out how to have my category pages only show the thumbnail like a picture gallery. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to go about it in atahualpa. i would love it if I could get it to display a 3 column grid. Any thoughts?


Here is my site as is: http://www.fishshackdesign.com/categ...lank-pictures/

Thanks!

For just showing the thumbnails have you tried setting the Excerpt Length to 0?

As for the three columns. I am assuming you want multiple posts in three columns as opposed to three columns in a post. To do that requires some coding. There is a tutorial in the Gold forum for two columns and I have seen some talk on three columns in the forum.

Because that would affect the index page and the other pages that use excerpts. I only want it to show thumbs on the category pages.


Anyone else with thoughts?

I just did a search on wordpress.org and found the Category Thumbnail List plugin which, I think, does what you want.

That plugin is a cool one, but not what I am looking for. That plugin makes it so that you can post a thumbnail gallery in your posts.

I am looking for something that will do it on the category pages that are automatically generated.

It did work for me but it of course does not work for automatically generated category pages.. You would indeed have to create a new page for every category.

Sorry... That was about a year ago and I don't remember what I did.
