For current versions of WordPress, see Post Thumbnails.

When using the default theme, you'll notice images (and links) do not appear when visiting category and archive query pages. This has to do with how the default theme displays post content in those sections of your site. To change this behavior, edit the default theme's Archive Template (archive.php). You can do this online through the Theme Editor, or offline by downloading and opening the default theme's archive.php in any text editor. Once in the Archive Template, look for this section:

<div class="entry">
    <?php the_excerpt() ?>
</div>

Here, change the_excerpt() template tag, which displays a summary of a post's content while filtering out all HTML tags. To display each post's whole content (and HTML tags), use the_content() template tag:

<div class="entry">
   <?php the_content(); ?>
</div>

From 2.9, you can also make use of the_post_thumbnail() template tag.
