Removing/Altering Parts of 'Clean Home' Theme

  1. 1) WordPress.com blogs don't support plugins.

    2) Your header is the blog title / header image area. What does headers (plural) mean?

    3) The fact that you were seeing a similar line in both cases doesn't necessarily mean you apply the same coding. In this theme the line between the posts is a divider line while the line above each sidebar link is a top border to list items and the line below is a bottom border to the list. To remove those lines:

    #sidebar .block ul, #sidebar .block li {
    border: none;
    }

    PS I wonder why you chose Clean Home when you're leaving nothing of it.

    Why can't it support plugins? And if this is the case why are there sites and forums like this:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/

    Just curious. I would really like to be able to use plugins and wondering how I can. I know a lot of people on WordPress who switch from Blogspot and seem to make it work.

    I meant both blog post titles and and the widget titles by headers (oops! :) )

    As for deleting things, WordPress doesn't offer a way to easily construct a blog, and in terms of design- none of the blogs fit my fancy. They all have too much, hence why i remove a lot of it, and more importantly to make it more of my own.

  3. WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org
    WordPress.com is a hosted blog service. You do not have to download software, pay for hosting or manage a web server. WordPress.com does not permit uploading themes or plugins. WordPress.org is free software. You can install themes and plugins, run ads, and edit the database. Check out our article on the differences. > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  4. Her's my own quick answer. this is a multiuser blogging platform with millions of us blogging on the same platform. All using the same theme are using the same template. One bad bit of script in one funky plugin could bring a lot of blogs. So for security reasons there is no FTP access allowed to free hosted WordPress.com blogs, and iframes, Javascript and forms codes are stripped out by the software. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    WordPress doesn't offer a way to easily construct a blog, and in terms of design- none of the blogs fit my fancy.

    this is available to you. Hire a web host and download a free software install form WordPress.org. Then you can do as you wish and the only risk to security will be to your own free standing self-hosted blog.

    Ok, thanks!!

    One more questioning on making the headers change for Typekit...

    Under each post there is a header that says the amount of comments on the post, in the same post header and widget header font:

    Like here:
    http://dequelleplaneteestu.com/2011/06/19/robicellis-the-brooklyn-standard/

    Is it possible to override that and add the selectors within TypeKit to make the Typekit font show in this PARTICULAR case? Is this possible for the commenters names as well? (Not sure where to get selector names/titles)

    Thanks for all of your help! You are all CSS gods.

    Spam Removed Thank you for the report!

  7. Selector for commenter's username:

    #comments cite a

    Selector for linking items in the post metadata:

    .hentry small a

    I don't know if you can isolate the leave a commnent / number of comments tab in particular: the CSS gods here are devblog and thesacredpath, not me!

    Thank you so much. This selector stuff is hard to find info on, so thanks for putting up with all of these ridiculous questions!

  9. If you haven't already tried it, you should check out Firebug for Firefox. You can use it to right-click on an element and see the selectors.

    In the Clean Home theme, there is not an id or name attribute for the number of comments in the post-meta line, so you can't use selectors to set a separate font for that particular item with Typekit on WordPress.com.

  10. Thanks designsimply.
    ( As for Firebug, I had made the same suggestion in one of my first replies:
    http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/removingaltering-parts-of-clean-home-theme?replies=39#post-621239 )

  11. Aha, missed that before. :) Good tips there!
