Remove category and tags displayed

  1. My theme is Twenty Twelve - with CSS Customization.
    1) At the bottom of each post, there is: "This entry was posted in {the category} and tagged {tag1, tag2, ....} on {posting date}". Can I remove (or hide) the categories and tags displayed - such that that line would read "This entry was posted on {posting date}".
    2) how do I reduce the white space between the "This entry was posted in ... line" (from 2 above) and the "Comment? enter your comment here" which follows it at the bottom?
    3) how do I increase the length of that comment box by, say, 75% (or something like that?)
    (Should I be entering these 3 questions as separate threads?)

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

  2. I apologize. Please forget this thread Can I delete it?

  3. Starting over as "proustmatters" ... I mean the site I'm dealing with is proustmatters.com not shargira. Here are my questions (again! ... so embarrassing. I appreciate your patience. (;-( )
    Three questions:

  4. Hi there,

    At the bottom of each post, there is: "This entry was posted in {the category} and tagged {tag1, tag2, ....} on {posting date}". Can I remove (or hide) the categories and tags displayed - such that that line would read "This entry was posted on {posting date}".

    Hmm. You can hide the whole thing with:

    .entry-meta {
    display: none;
    }

    But you can't really hide only parts of it and keep others, because the text is hard-coded into this theme. The date will display as part of the permalink, however.

    how do I reduce the white space between the "This entry was posted in ... line" (from 2 above) and the "Comment? enter your comment here" which follows it at the bottom?

    You can do this with the following code:

    .site-content article {
    margin-bottom: 0em;
    }

    how do I increase the length of that comment box by, say, 75% (or something like that?)

    Do you mean the height? The comment box will expand as anyone types in it.

  5. Again eurello, you are a winner on 1) and 2). For 3), yes I meant the height of the comment box. I understand that it will expand as the commenter types, but I was wondering if it is simple to increase the initial size of the box (in length).

    Ahhh, but I have another request. (Should I be starting a separate thread?)
    I would like to increase the left margin of the entire site (about 10% or so) Right now, it feels too slim.

    Thank you so much - again.

  6. I wrote (above) that I would like to increase the left margin of the entire site. I now realize that I would like to leave all that alone (i.e , site title, menus, comments etc,) but increase the left margin of the body of the post itself. I find that what I'm doing for every single post is a select all, then "increase the indent" Is there a way to do this in CSS?

  7. No need to start new threads if it's the same topic (CSS) and the same site. :)

    For the comment form, try:

    #respond #comment-form-comment, #comment-form-share-text-padder {
    	height: 100px;
    }

    increase the left margin of the body of the post itself.

    Do you mean something like:

    .entry-content, .entry-summary, .mu_register {
    margin-left: 50px;
    }

    That increases the margin to the left of just the post content. That's too narrow for a phone-sized device, however, so you'd also want to add something like:

    @media screen and (max-width: 768px) {
    	.entry-content, .entry-summary, .mu_register {
    margin-left: 5px;
    }
    }
  8. You are fantastic! I increased the comment box. I increased the margin of the post content - 50px was too much - so I used 25px. I checked my iPod Touch and it's fine without the second snippet (beginning with @media screen ..... Ummmm, should I be using this second snippet as some kind of a safety valve anyway ... I don't know what it means.)
    Thanks soooooo much.

  9. Nope, if you like how it looks on your iPod touch, that's fine. You can also use the device preview tools in the customizer to see an approximation of how your CSS looks on mobile devices: http://en.support.wordpress.com/customizer/

    They're pretty handy. :)
