Imbalance Theme : How to get rid of Meta, Categories, Dates, Leave a Comment

  1. Hi,

    I'm trying to clean my blog of the following:
    Meta
    Blog at WordPress.com
    Theme: Imbalance
    Categories.

    All I want visible is the title of the blog
    The sub title and the thumbnails / descriptions of projects I will upload.

    Can you advise?
    Thanks
    M

    The blog I need help with is untitled83.com.

  2. To remove the default display of the meta and all widgets simply install any empty text widget. Doing that means you override the deafulkt display and there will not be any widgets displayed.

  3. If you are going to use Imbalance 2 then note these apply to the version of the theme adapted to run on our WordPress.com software:
    http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/imbalance2/
    http://imbalance2demo.wordpress.com/

    Imbalance 2 offers two layout options, fluid and fixed.
    Fluid means the width changes according to screen resolution (or the width of browser) your visitors use.
    Fixed means the width does not change according to screen resolution (or the width of browser) your visitors use.

    Column one is the blog title and tagline; you edit them in Settings > General.
    Columns two and three are for two menus; you create and load them in Appearance > Menus - instructions here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/
    Column four is for widgets; you add them in Appearance > Widgets.

    All I want visible is the title of the blog
    The sub title and the thumbnails / descriptions of projects I will upload.

    Be awre that we cannot edit templates or themes here at WordPress.com. Have you purchased a custom design upgrade?

  4. I apologize. I just belatedly noticed that this thread was in the CSS Forum. Please ignore what I posted. :(

  5. Main page:

    .box .posted {
    display: none;
    }

    Single post pages (if desired):

    .entry-meta {
    display: none;
    }
  6. Please note that the footer credits should stay visible. You could make them less loud in the Imbalance 2 theme with something like this:

    #site-info,
    #site-info a {
    	color: #A1A1A1;
    	font-weight: normal;
    }

    To completely hide all of the header image areas in the Imbalance 2 theme and make the header shorter, you could do something like this:

    #header-left,
    #header-right,
    #header-center {
    	display: none;
    }
    #branding {
    	min-height: 50px;
    }

    thesacredpath's answer above covers the dates and comment links below posts.

    I'm interested to see what you'll do with your site!

  8. can any one tell me how to remove date from the blog ? I am unable to do so . could someone please help me ? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

  9. To hide just the post date on the Imbalance 2 home page:

    .posted .main-separator,
    .posted .entry-date {
    	display: none;
    }
  10. Thank you for the help but there I'm still having difficulty removing certain things.

    I have upgraded to the custom design.

    I'm trying to get rid of the "Leave a Comment" and "Edit" that appear under my current header Clientele.

    I also want to remove the "Leave a Reply" at the bottom. I've worked with CSS before in other blog forums and WordPress is giving me the most trouble for some reason. I really hope to resolve soon.

    For any guidance, could you be as specific as possible in terms of manipulating the css?

    Thank you

  11. I'm trying to get rid of the "Leave a Comment" and "Edit" that appear under my current header Clientele.

    No CSS necessary for those particular things.

    You can remove the "Leave a Comment" option at the top and the "Leave a Reply" at the bottom by editing the page and unchecking the "Allow comments" setting. Looks like you already figured that out.

    The "Edit" link is only visible to blog administrators when you are logged in with rights to edit, so the public won't see that. To see how it looks to others, log out of WordPress.com and reload the page.
