    Hi there,

    I need to remove the featured image thumbnail from posts in the Blog Page and the Search Results Pages, but not from the Home Page.

    Is there a way to do this with CSS?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

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

    This should do it for you.

    .blog .posts .post div.thumb {
    display: none;
    }
    
    .search .posts .post div.thumb {
    display: none;
    }

    Dear Sacred, thanks again! It worked beautifully.

    Another question: I guess nobody guess the CSS of every particular theme…. is there a place where all these properties, values, selectors, etc. for each theme can be found? I mean the ones that are not included in the WP.com original CSS.

    Sometimes it is a challenge the trial-error involved and it can even be fun; on the other hand, I know you guys are always there to help… but I’d really like to be able to do this by myself so I bother you guys less and less each time, if you understand what I mean. :-)

    I did the above by looking in the page source code and then just from my long-time experience knew how to target certain pages. If you view the page source, in the opening body tag, you will see a variety of classes. That is where I got “blog” and “search”. I then used those to specifically target those page types. For the most part it is a matter of working with the XHTML (markup) and the CSS side by side and then getting to see and understand the relationship between the two of them.

    I also use the Firebug add-on for Firefox, which makes doing CSS stuff a lot easier.

    I guess to make a long story short, the selectors you see in my code do not exist in the CSS. I pulled the classes together based on my experience to target those page types.

    I understand. So I guess I need to do many more blogs/sites then…. and definitely study some more, I mean STUDY. I’ve studied nothing, just trial and error so far, shame on me. :-) Thank you again SacredPath.

    You are welcome. Trial and error is a good way of learning. I learned by jumping in and doing it.

    I’ve JUST discover how the firebug works!!! Eureka!

    Oh, I’ve seen The Light… in the firebug’s butt! LOL!

    The page source also is a terrific idea. Thank you again and again and again, SacredPath!
