WordPress Excerpts

Hi Experts,

On my WP blog categories are listing the excerpts of the posts. Each single-post has a photo. How can i show in category page inside each post excerpt a thumbnail of the picture post has?

Many thanks in advance for help.

Thank you for answer. Ive checked the link you posted but still doesnt work. The posts have thumbnails,  add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' ) is included in functions.php. My php files are:
Category.php
<?php
/**
 *
 * archive.php
 *
 * The archive template. Used when a category, author, or date is queried.
 * Note that this template will be overridden by category.php, author.php, and date.php for their respective query types. 
 *
 * More detailed information about template’s hierarchy: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy
 *

			if (have_posts()) {
				global $posts;
				$post = $posts[0];
				theme_ob_start();

				if (is_category()) {
					echo '<h4>' . single_cat_title('', false) . '</h4>';
					echo category_description();

Ive tried many variants to include the_post_thumbnail() with no result.

Any idea where to look further on?
Thanks in advance.

The images are within your content or are they used as 'Featured Image'?

What Framework and Theme are you using? Can you find where the function theme_post_wrapper() is defined?

Im using a theme generated by Artisteer v4. the function is in wrappers.php and it has the code
function theme_post_wrapper($args = '') {
	$args = wp_parse_args($args, array(
			'id'        => '',
			'class'     => '',
			'title'     => '',
			'heading'   => 'h2',
			'thumbnail' => '',
			'before'    => '',
			'content'   => '',
			'after'     => ''
		)
	);
	extract($args);
	if (theme_is_empty_html($title) && theme_is_empty_html($content))
		return;
	if ($id) {
		$id = ' id="' . $id . '" ';
	}
	if ($class) {
		$class = ' ' . $class;
	}
	?>
	<article<?php echo $id; ?> class="art-post art-article <?php echo $class; ?>">
                                <?php
if (!theme_is_empty_html($title)) {
	echo '<'.$heading.' class="art-postheader">'.$title.'</'.$heading.'>';
}
?>
                                                <?php echo $before; ?>
                <?php echo $thumbnail; ?><div class="art-postcontent clearfix"><?php echo $content; ?></div>
                                <?php echo $after; ?>
                </article>
	<?php

Anyway, i solved the problem. I have a  local site version where i test all new modifications before i add them to the live blog. For some reason it doesnt works on local server, but it works on the live blog. I may mess up things on my local since is the testing one.
Thank you for your involvement.
