Excerpts on front page but with thumbnailes

I'd like to have a two-columns layout showing only post excerpts, but displaying a thumbnail of an post image as well. Is this possible?

Some skins let you use a 2 or even 3 column layout. But they display the whole post. If I change this in the blog setting, if I make it display excerpts only, the thumbnails are never shown.

I suppose hacking around in the code might change this behavior? But how? Thanks!

@nomad just to clarify, do you want to show posts in 2 and/or 3 columns side-by-side? I can't find a skin that let you do that right now, just post+sidebar and posts+sidebar1+sidebar2 (legacy skins).

Can you please send the skin you're thinking on so we can help you to modify it?

Nobody has an idea about how to do it? I've been looking at Business Blog Skin again, one the few promising skins available

I'm not sure about what the Business Blog skin can do but some of the default bootstrap definitely can do it.

Have you tried all the widgets and widget settings on the business skin?

Hi and thanks for your answer. After some digging in the settings I found the option you mentioned. Very good! The only problem is that an ugly icon is displayed for posts without pictures. It would be nicer without any icon. At least, it should be configurable, in my view

Can you screenshot what you get, i-e: "ugly icon" in context?
