    Instead of having it blog format, can I have a thumbnail gallery on the main page?

    Sorta like this, http://funlol.com/. I know there's better sites but this is the only one I remembered.

    I'm sure there are other image scripts out there but I'd like to stay with WP. Maybe they have a plug-in or something that would work? I don't mind switching though if that's the only option. :o

    In theory, it could be fairly simple. (Using funlol as reference)

    You have have your homepage to display all the latest posts etc., and you code the HTML in a way that the posts display in grid format.

    For each post (on the homepage) you could just show the catagory (videos, pictures), the date and a caption image (assigned using a Custom Field).

    This make any sense (me sleepy)

    That was originally my first idea but I really don't want to deal with coding if there was an easy work around. :o

    Proper coding is the easy work around .. you don't wanna hard code that, trust me. A script could do that easily. He's got mixed content there too ... just fyi. :big grin:
