Using latest ATA/WP:

Client wants excerpt (category) page with thumbnail on left, and title/byline/excerpt/footer on the right, without the excerpt text wrapping around the thumbnail.

Post pages should have title/byline/content/footer on left edge, with thumbnail at left edge aligned with first paragraph of text. So any CSS for excerpt (category excerpt page) should not affect the single post page.

The only solution (without looking for a plugin) I can think of would envolve making changes to the theme code. you would probably need to edit bfa_post_parts.php

Hi, wondering if there is a specific plugin you an recommend for this. I've seen a lot of posts/threads trying to get the entire post (including title, byline etc...) to align to one side or other of the thumbnail (as opposed to just the excerpt) but nothing seems definitive.

Has anything changed with more recent versions of Atahualpa that allows one to position the title and byline to the right of the thumbnail instead of just the excerpt?

Or is there a plugin which can manage this someone can recommend?

Thanks,
Rick

You might try 'List Category Posts'. I believe you can create templates to display things the way you want.

Thanks JD...so in this case it looks like I'd set the home page to a static page and then use the plugins short-code (styling their template as I wanted?)

Have there been no other solutions to this issue within Atahualpa that have worked for anyone? Or as many times as a variation of this has been asked, has anyone actually completed a solution somehow (plugin or otherwise) ?

that's what I would do.

it has to do with the way the HTML is created. Atahualpa creates a div for the post with a div for the post header, a div for the thumbnail and post content and a div for post footer like this
HTML Code:
<div id="post-1178" class="post-1178 post type-post status-publish format-standard has-post-thumbnail hentry category-markup odd">
	<div class="post-headline">...</div>
	<div class="post-bodycopy clearfix">...</div>
	<div class="post-footer">...</div>
</div>
what you want is something like
HTML Code:
<div id="post-1178" class="post-1178 post type-post status-publish format-standard has-post-thumbnail hentry category-markup odd">
	<div>
		<a><img...thumbnail />
		<div class="post-headline">...</div>
		<div class="post-bodycopy clearfix">...</div>
		<div class="post-footer">...</div>
	</div>
</div>
which you can do with the plugin.

To do it within Atahualpa would entail quite a bit of coding and the next person would say, oh, but I want it this way....Footer first then body then thumbnail centered under that ...

Gotcha...thanks. In the "pie in the sky" department might be something to consider for future Atahualpa development. I know every time I have to do something funky, tweak code, manually enter css etc., I think "Wouldn't it be nice if Atahualpa could allow me to adjust that easily like all the other things it allows me to adjust." (Don't get me wrong, Atahualpa is still my go to platform for making WP sites!)

Anyhow, I was able to accomplish this using the plugin "W4 Post List" on this site: http://iamandrewlustig.com - this particular plugin had a better developed templating system than the other one recommended. (Though still had to edit some code in their files to do some of the things I wanted.)

Thanks for your help JuggleDad!
