remove "recent articles" and "more articles" from oxygen theme

  1. Hi guys,

    I want to remove "recent articles" and "more articles" from oxygen showcase page
    But I don't want the secondary side (widget) to be removed with it

    Please Help

    Regards,

    Liya

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

  2. Please don't post the same question multiple times. It makes the volunteers run around in circles and they get cranky.

    The site linked to your username isn't a wordpress site. We need a link to the site you are talking about.

  3. Sorry thesacredpath,

    Here is the site - http://kmistest.wordpress.com/

  4. This will get rid of the grey block and the titles for those sections. I assume that is what you meant and not the articles themselves.

    .home .recent-articles h1, .home .more-articles h1 {
    display: none;
    }`

  5. shoot, I forgot one of my code tags.

    .home .recent-articles h1, .home .more-articles h1 {
    display: none;
    }
  6. Thank you so much for your prompt response..

    Two more questions :)

    Can I get rid of the the (image above each article..?) - on the showcase page (home page)

    I want the title and some description only.. NO image (featured-image) above

    OR if that is not possible

    Can I get rid of the whole article (empty page in the middle column)

    Best,

    Liya

  8. Liya, I was asleep. It is just now 8am where I am.

    First off a suggestion: Never paste the entire stylesheet into the CSS edit window as it can cause all sorts of problems. Put into the CSS edit window only the specific selectors, and the specific declarations you are adding or changing.

    It appears you have gotten rid of the featured images on your main page posts. Getting rid of all content though... I don't understand that. Having a page with no content means the search engines will simply ignore that page. They do not pay any attention to what is in sidebars. They look at sidebars, but do not index them for their searches.

    It sounds to me like you need to dump the showcase template because you are wanting to hide everything that makes it a showcase template. Why not just go back to a standard "blog" page for your main page?

    One other note: Your titles for your posts are WAY too long and that is another problem with search engines. Titles need to be short and concise.

    If you want an empty showcase main page with no content then add this to your CSS:

    .home .recent-articles, .home .more-articles {
    display: none;
    }
  9. Thank you so much :)

    You are ryt, planning to keep them..

    But I don't know where the date and posted by went under each post on the home page

    http://kmistest.wordpress.com/

    What do you suggest?

    Best regards,

    Liya

  10. You hid the dates with this:

    .entry-meta {
    display: none;
    }

    To get ride of the grey box with the categories in it (I'm assuming that was what you were trying to hide with the above) use the following.

    .cat-links {
    display: none;
    }
  11. Thank you so much.. Looks okay now

    One more question :)

    The title of this - http://kmistest.wordpress.com/themes/

    Is very big

    How do I reduce the size?

    Thank you,

    Liya

  12. First off, I noticed that you have hidden the footer credits. That is not allowed at wordpress.com. You can adjust the text color and such a little to make them less noticeable, but don't go to far as making them "virtually" disappear is the same as hiding them. Even the VIP sites here, which pay thousands of dollars a month have to keep the footer credits.

    If you only want to reduce the title font size on pages, do this and then adjust the value as desired.

    .page .entry-title {
    font-size: 2.36em !important;
    }

    The 2.36em is the size that was set with the custom font you are using. You can adjust it in the custom fonts panel as well, but it would also reduce the size of post titles.

  13. Thank you thesacredpath

    It is the test site, will get the credits back on the main site..

    Thank you for everything..

    ..

    How do you capitalize the first letter on the top menu?

    Best,

    Liya

  14. You are welcome and this will get rid of the lowercase on the menu.

    .main-navigation a {
    text-transform: none;
    }
  15. You are the best :)

    I put back the credit

    And I was wondering..

    the top menu 'projects' has a 'sub menu' (but the arrow is now showing)

    What should I do?

    Best Regards,

    I really appreciate your help

  16. Hi thesacredpath :)

    And one more question...

    If you see my site http://kmistest.wordpress.com/

    The left site Widget title is aligned at the top the gray background..

    Example: The 'Welcome' and 'bio-innovate' widget titles

    How do I make it Center?

    Many thanks,

    appreciate it!

    Liya

  17. This is one of the problems (the missing menu item separator) when you paste the entire stylesheet into the CSS edit window. It breaks all of the relative links to images that are used in the theme design. Find .main-navigation li in your CSS and change the relative URL in the background declaration to the following:

    http://s2.wp.com/wp-content/themes/pub/oxygen/images/menu-separator.png

  18. Just got up and didn't finish my thought. With CSS, what is best at wordpress.com is to put into the CSS edit window, only the specific selectors, and only the specific declarations you are adding or changing. That way your changes are added to, and override the existing CSS which means that the relative URLs will still work.

  19. And on the widget titles it looks like you have that figured out.

  20. Aw thanks so much..

    And yes I have figured it out.. Yet, if you see the ones with the RSS link (orange) the background doesn't seem to go with it..
    Can I get rid of the background for only (RSS widget) menus?

    AND :)

    How about the arrow on the Featured Slide.. (the one on the black background)

    Many thanks,

    Liya

  21. Got the arrow for the featured slide :)

    How about for sub menu the down arrow if I have a sub menu?

    Like the (projects) on the top menu?

    Thank you,

    Liya

  22. Backgrounds on the title of RSS widgets only:

    .widget_rss .widgettitle {
    background: none;
    border-left: none;
    }

    Not seeing any arrows on the featured slider at http://kmistest.wordpress.com/ .

  23. Perfect, thank you soooo much!!

    :) Asking too much

    And when you go to the second page like

    http://kmistest.wordpress.com/about-us/

    The title 'About us'

    Is very big, how do I make it smaller without affecting the other menus?

    Many thanks,

    Liya

  24. Edit the font-size in .entry-title in your custom CSS and add the !important attribute and then adjust the font size as desired. The font size there is the original, and the huge size is the size set in the custom fonts panel.

    `.entry-title {
    font-size: 1.33333em !important;
    }

  25. Oops, I forgot the closing code tag.

    .entry-title {
    font-size: 1.33333em !important;
    }
  26. Thanks for everything!! :)

    Will come back later!

  27. Dear thesacredpath,

    Thank you so much for everything..

    Can you please make a comment on design perspective? :)

  28. Hi ilricomms and thesacredpath,

    I think my issue is very similar, but I was hoping you could clarify your instructions. I am trying to remove "more articles" from the oxygen theme and replace with the "special recent posts" widget that is now currently in the right side bar. Is it possible to make the "more articles" space a widget area?

    I tried inserting some of your code suggestions in the my child theme's style.css, but this must not be the correct place. I'm still quite a novice so any pointers would be much appreciated.

    My site is http://nml.cuny.edu/sciencestudies/

    Thanks much!

  29. Hi all,

    Could someone (ilricomms maybe?) please tell me how I can remove the pictures of the recent articles on the homepage just as on http://kmistest.wordpress.com?

    Furthermore I have also 'lost' the arrows in the bottoms corners of the big slider navigation on the homepage. Could someone explain how I can get these back?

    Thank you.
