    Wordpress as CMS: Image as post preview | Details on Single page

    Hello,

    I try integrating CMS into a website. I am looking for this type of functionality:

    http://www.owengallery.com/exhibitions

    How can I make a post like in the example above: the post preview should be an thumbnail image and its title and when I click on it to be taken to the page with a larger image and description?

    I have knowledge about formatting pages, single page etc but I don't have enough experience to accomplish that above. Is there any plugin helping me with that?

    Thank you and I would appreciate any answers.

    Question

    I guess you can use lightbox plugin (for wordpress, joomla or even regular website) to implement image gallery.

    All you need to do is to place some code:
    Code:
    <a href="big_image_url" rel="lightbox" title="Click the image to enlarge"><img src="small_image_url"/></a>
    When someone clicks the image thumbnail it's opened in shadowed overlayed window over the original post.

    Or instead of just image url you can overlay small html page with image and description.

    Another alternative is Shadowbox (google it).
    Do YOU want to get everything YOU want in life?
    All YOU need 2 do is to replace the intension "To get"
    with the wish "To Give"! And YOU will get it!

    Thanks for the reply, but is still not what I want. In the example given above you can see.

    By the look of it the exhibitions page is just a WP listings page with a thumbnail that links to a WP full entry page. The thumbnail is the original image resized using phpThumb.
