We now have the big basic layout for this magazine style blog that we’re creating here in Thesis Theme 2. So what we’re going to do now is we’re going to add Related Posts to this. We’re going to put Related Posts directly above the Comment Form and the Related Posts in this case, is going to be a Query Box.
We’ll drop it right there below Home Post Box and the Related Posts is only going to show an image and a title. The Headline here will be an h3, we’re going to link it to the page,. This Featured Image is the thumbnail and it’s going to link to the post except we don’t want this one to align left, we want it to align center.
Create a Featured Image Box
I’m actually going to have to create a different one for this so we’re going to create a new box, a Featured Image box, it’s going to be Centered Thumbnail. We’ll pick the thumbnail, alignment is center, link to post, yes. And then this one’s going to be Recent Posts actually and I think we’ll just save it like that and see what it looks like.
We only want three also, so post to show, under advance query options, no, Posts, Recent Posts, Number of Posts, 3 so now we have query box. I think I’m going to give this a class so that we can target it. The class is going to be “related”, now let’s see if that appends “related” or if it replaces “related” with query box. It is query_box_related okay perfect. Then what we’re going to do is come up with a style for the related posts.
