Link to ‘child pages’ in WordPress with ‘the_post_thumbnail’

WordPress 2.9 has been released and comes packed with some awesome new features. One of the new feature that I am loving as I have been longing for it, is the post thumbnail. This is a new feature in WordPress that allows you to upload an image to a post that you are creating and attaches to the post as its thumbnail. No longer do you have to use custom fields if all you want is a image for you posts.

It can be used for both posts and pages so I may use both post or page interchangeable throughout this post. I’ve recently used the new ‘Post Thumbnail’ feature in 2.9 to link child pages from a ‘Parent’ page using the Post Thumbnail as an image link.

The code below is an example of how to use the ‘get_the_post_thumbnail()’ to list the current page children with its content and a title.
