Help with featured images in Academica

  1. Hi there,

    I need to remove the featured image thumbnail from posts in the Blog Page and the Search Results Pages, but not from the Home Page.

    Is there a way to do this with CSS?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    The blog I need help with is fdfot.wordpress.com.

  2. This should do it for you.

    .blog .posts .post div.thumb {
    display: none;
    }
    
    .search .posts .post div.thumb {
    display: none;
    }
  3. Dear Sacred, thanks again! It worked beautifully.

    Another question: I guess nobody guess the CSS of every particular theme.... is there a place where all these properties, values, selectors, etc. for each theme can be found? I mean the ones that are not included in the WP.com original CSS.

    Sometimes it is a challenge the trial-error involved and it can even be fun; on the other hand, I know you guys are always there to help... but I'd really like to be able to do this by myself so I bother you guys less and less each time, if you understand what I mean. :-)

  4. I did the above by looking in the page source code and then just from my long-time experience knew how to target certain pages. If you view the page source, in the opening body tag, you will see a variety of classes. That is where I got "blog" and "search". I then used those to specifically target those page types. For the most part it is a matter of working with the XHTML (markup) and the CSS side by side and then getting to see and understand the relationship between the two of them.

    I also use the Firebug add-on for Firefox, which makes doing CSS stuff a lot easier.

  5. I guess to make a long story short, the selectors you see in my code do not exist in the CSS. I pulled the classes together based on my experience to target those page types.

  6. I understand. So I guess I need to do many more blogs/sites then.... and definitely study some more, I mean STUDY. I've studied nothing, just trial and error so far, shame on me. :-) Thank you again SacredPath.

  7. You are welcome. Trial and error is a good way of learning. I learned by jumping in and doing it.

  8. I've JUST discover how the firebug works!!! Eureka!

    Oh, I've seen The Light... in the firebug's butt! LOL!

    The page source also is a terrific idea. Thank you again and again and again, SacredPath!
