Well I could keep posting all my codes but don't want to clutter the post. Let me know if there are any other codes I could post. Add
	<img class="thumb" src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/tools/timthumb.php?src=<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, "thumb", $single = true); ?>&amp;h=<?php echo get_theme_mod($position.'_thumb_height'); ?>&amp;w=<?php echo get_theme_mod($position.'_thumb_width'); ?>&amp;zc=1" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" />

<br />

<?php the_excerpt();?>
on the blog_page.php replacing
<?php the_content('[Read More..]'); ?>
Also make sure that you upload your images and add it in the post meta with the keyword thumb. Also if possible, please share with your archive.php so it could be edited to show text on category pages here is the archive file... trying your instructions now...
<?php get_header(); ?>

<div id="content">

	<div id="contentleft">
    
		<div class="postarea">
	
			
			
			<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
            
			<div <?php post_class(); ?>>
            	
				<h1><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1>
            
            	<?php require(TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/post-author-block.php'); ?>

				<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
                
                <div class="clear"></div>
                                
				<?php require(TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/post-meta-block.php'); ?>
                        
            </div>
                
			<?php endwhile; else: ?>
                    
            <?php require(TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/post-nav-block.php'); ?>

			<?php endif; ?>
            
			<?php require(TEMPLATEPATH . '/includes/post-nav-block.php'); ?>
        
        </div>
	
	</div>
			
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>

</div>

<?php get_footer(); ?>
unfortunetely, I have tried replacing the code as you instructed and nothing happened. What do you mean by?
Also make sure that you upload your images and add it in the post meta with the keyword thumb.
Didn't do that if that was needed for everything to work.. I meant adding a link to the direct image. Attached a screen-shot whereby you have to add the link. If still the problem exists, can be resolved in a few minutes if you could upload your theme in a zip file and share it with me

Solution - 1

Add

	<img class="thumb" src="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/tools/timthumb.php?src=<?php echo get_post_meta($post->ID, "thumb", $single = true); ?>&amp;h=<?php echo get_theme_mod($position.'_thumb_height'); ?>&amp;w=<?php echo get_theme_mod($position.'_thumb_width'); ?>&amp;zc=1" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" />

<br />

<?php the_excerpt();?>
on the blog_page.php replacing
<?php the_content('[Read More..]'); ?>
Also make sure that you upload your images and add it in the post meta with the keyword thumb. Also if possible, please share with your archive.php so it could be edited to show text on category pages
