    Joomla Beginner Question - Article summary with thumbnail

    I have started building my first Joomla site and have got stuck woking out how to include a thumbnail image next to my article summaries.

    Basically on my front page I have several articles that I have used the "read more" option to only display the first paragraph. I can't fo the life of me see any option to associate a thumbnail image to the article.

    Can someone point me in the right direction please? I am assuming this is built into Joomla admin as it is such a common site feature.

    I don't think this is built into joomla core, I think you may need a plugin to achieve what you want.

    Joomla is a really good cms, with a massive commercial and non-commercial community, im sure you will find what you want, I'd start off at extensions.joomla.org
    Plugins are very simple to use, install it, activate it, insert the plugin tag such as {my plugin} wherever its to be used.
