Full Version: Displaying images with link from other pages in Homepage

I have been searching the plugins pages/forum and don't seem to be able to find a way to do this. 

I have a section of my Homepage with featured projects (thumbnails and link to individual project page). As my client creates a new project page, I would like to allow them to indicate on the project page a feature photo for the project. Then, the homepage will automatically use the feature photo in the project page to update the Homepage's featured projects section with the picture and link it to the project page. This is so that my client don't have to update the Homepage each time they have a new project.

Any helps will be much appreciated!!!

You don't need a plugin for this. Just a few lines of code will do. Just fiddle around with things like:
<?php include(' ...... '); ?>
page slug
<img src" ... path to image on other page" alt="">

I need something dynamically fetching images from new pages and insert them automatically on the Homepage
I think a combination of I18N Search and possibly I18N Special Pages (although I don't know that plugin well enough)

For example with I18N Search you can make a displayed list of all your "projects", dynamically created. So if you create a new page with a tag (or you make it a subpage) then it will be automaticly listed in that search result (I18N Search can make predefined searches, so you only see the result of a defind search).

Possibly with I18N Special Pages you could make a custom page type with the thumbnail.

I like to do that with News Manager Updated and its add-ons. Each new project is a news item with a title, a featured image and any amount of text and other images. 


A couple of years ago I made a demo project that you could download as theme. the demo is 
http://timbowgs.bplaced.net/grill/
and on the homepage the 'posts tagged Main' appear as images linking to the article.
You can download the demo here

It's in need of updating and a bit of snagging I see.
It's also in use here:
