Miss Edit CSS link

  1. I am using the Twenty Ten theme for a simple blog. I cannot find the Edit CSS link in Appearance. Where is it? My site is http://ardiana11.wordpress.com/

    Other questions:
    1. I cannot get the comments section to appear unless they click the individual post. How can I get comments on the blog page?
    2. How do I eliminate the "This entry was posted in Uncategorized and that whole line?

    The blog I need help with is ardiana11.wordpress.com.

  2. If you have purchased the custom design upgrade http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/ then see here http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2013/02/21/where-is-the-theme-css-and-how-do-i-edit-it/

    1. That's included in the core of WordPress and you cannot change it. Our posts are showcased of the front page and one has to click a title link or comment link to have them display on their own pages where all comments display.

    2. I don't help with CSS editing but will have this thread moved to the CSS Forum where you can get help.

    Important note: CSS editing is theme dependent. In some themes, categories and/or tags cannot be hidden independently, as they are in the same selector as the other meta data elements such as author, date, and perhaps even the “leave a comment” link, which means if you hide one, then you hide them all.

  3. Thank you. I have another site where I did not purchase the upgrade but have the CSS Edit link under Appearance. That site is hosted through JustHost so is that why I have it on that page and not this self-hosted page?

    The site is probably using Jetpack, or another similar plugin, that has a CSS editor added.

  5. 2. How do I eliminate the "This entry was posted in Uncategorized and that whole line?

    To hide the post meta that appears below posts in the Twenty Ten theme on WordPress.com, add this to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor:

    .entry-utility {
    	display: none;
    }
  6. Thanks for the info. I'm sorry to be thick but how do I get Jetpack? Also, if I cannot find the CSS edit link how can I add the code for the answer to #2?

  7. No apology necessary, it can be a little confusing if you're not familiar with WordPress and WordPress.com. Basically, Jetpack is a plugin made for self-hosted WordPress installs to help those blogs get some of the nifty features that WordPress.com has built-in.

    Before you go any further, you should make sure you understand this:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you have a self-hosted WordPress install for one of your blogs, you can go to Plugins → Add New in your blog dashboard to search for Jetpack and install it. You can also find out more about Jetpack at http://jetpack.me/

    Now, having said that, this is a WordPress.com forum—and you don't need Jetpack for a WordPress.com blog.

    If I cannot find the CSS edit link how can I add the code for the answer to #2?

    In that case, you can either opt to edit the theme's style.css file directly (not recommended) or make a child theme and add the styles there. To get help with either of those things, head over to http://wordpress.org/support/

  8. Thanks again but I am still terribly confused.

    I do not have a plugin link on the left hand nav on my blog site http://ardiana11.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-general.php. I do have a Plug in link on the left hand nav on my seb sites http://tricountymavericks.com/wp-admin/ and http://www.lordsoftheboards.com/wp-admin/.

    When I go to the Jet Pack site and download it the file opens in my Windows Explorer but when I open it I do not find the install.exe

  9. Sorry you're confused! Let's step back.

    WordPress.com doesn't offer the option for you to add your own plugins. Please make sure you have read this link: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    Earlier you said:

    I have another site where I did not purchase the upgrade but have the CSS Edit link under Appearance. That site is hosted through JustHost so is that why I have it on that page and not this self-hosted page?

    The site hosted at JustHost http://tricountymavericks.com/ is not hosted at WordPress.com and will have the Plugins menu option. The site here at WordPress.com http://ardiana11.wordpress.com/ doesn't have a plugins option because WordPress.com doesn't offer that as an option.

    When I go to the Jet Pack site and download it the file opens in my Windows Explorer but when I open it I do not find the install.exe

    Make sure to follow the steps I posted before: "go to Plugins → Add New in your blog dashboard to search for Jetpack and install it."

    Hopefully this explanation clears it up a little better. Because the WordPress.com service has such a similar name to the WordPress open source project, it can be confusing. The two blogs you have asked about are hosted on different hosting providers and that's why they are different (i.e. one has a Plugins menu and the other doesn't).

    Please make sure to read this related help page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  10. You have been wonderfully patient with me and your explanation has cleared it up. Thanks

  11. Awesome! It really can be a bit tricky at first. :)
