How to stop Featured Posts from showing up?

  1. Again to Absurd Old Bird .....

    That theme showcase is one of the first places I check. :-) I always click away at the active demo that they put in. :-) :-) :-)


  2. Thread moved to the theme forum section.

    @Lorna (re the email thing): There's no need for you to apologize. You just wanted a way to contact me, to give me some info you didn't wish to give in public: that's ok, I did not misunderstand your choice of words, and I could have easily given you a secondary mail address or a different way of contacting me instead of my "personal" mail address. There are two reasons I didn't do this: a) You'll notice that neither timethief's blog nor mine include a contact form. Both our blogs are on blogging tips and advice, so we feel that if we happen to give a useful answer to a question or a solution to a problem, it may be of interest to other users as well, so communication must be public only. b) I might need to visit the blog if the problem was of a different nature, for instance if it required examining the sourcecode of your page. But as you saw, in this case there was nothing I could find by visiting your blog that I didn't eventually find without visiting it - it just took us a couple of extra questions and answers.

  4. Hello everyone, I did some tests on Skeptical and was able to repeat the issue with the latest three posts appearing in the footer even when no posts are marked as sticky. I've filed a report and will keep you posted.

  5. Hello everyone,
    I had exact the same problem with the Skeptical theme. But after reading the above discussion I found a way to work around the issue:

    1. Create a new dummy sticky post
    -> it will be shown as the only post at featured post
    2. Move the recently created dummy sticky post to trash and tata ... the whole featured post area isn't there anymore.

    That seems to work for me.


  6. We've updated Skeptical and now the featured posts area only appears when a blog has a sticky post.

  7. Well, that sovles the problem. I liked to keep only one post per my front page, with the latest 3 featured post nicely displayed at the bottom. NOW, in order to them featured I have to have them on my front page. Why even have the Featured feature? Skeptical has been ruined for me. Plus, now my headlines will not show! Thanks!
