Rebalance, featured images, image post format pics, Flickr embed = dupe images

  1. I recently switched to your Rebalance theme. One vexing problem materialized. Every pic assigned to the image post format appears twice on single pages. Those pics are embedded via a Flickr link.

    Tapping on the Photography tag in my footer cloud confirms the problem. My only remedy appears to be turning off featured images globally, which would defeat one of the primary reasons sparking my Rebalance adoption.

    I'm quite familiar with the CSS Customization area. Would you kindly provide a CSS code snippet designed to hide all featured pictures with a common tag ONLY for image post format pics? It's the one code remaining stubbornly elusive via Google. Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is writesquire.com.

  2. I just rechecked the Content Options under Customize. All are checkmarked, including Automatically use first image. Unchecking the Automatically use first image option resolves the problem. But I lose that option everywhere. Therefore, I consider this a temporary emergency fix. I still need the requested magic code.

    Thank you.

  3. Hi @writesquire

    Would you kindly provide a CSS code snippet designed to hide all featured pictures with a common tag ONLY for image post format pics?

    How about hiding that first image after the featured image, but only in those posts?

    .post_format-post-format-image .entry-content img:first-child {
      display: none;
    }

    Test that out and see whether it works well. If not, we can move you over to the CSS customization forums to get some opinions there.

  4. Thank you. I'll try/test this tonight.

  5. Just tried this. Because I use the image post format, in most instances I did not assign a featured image. Your code causes the one pic showing, the Flickr embed, to disappear. The duplication remains on some pages, e.g. https://writesquire.com/2017/10/11/victoria-crowned-pigeon/ despite unchecking automatically show first image.

    Thank you.

  6. Ignore the linked page. I went in and deleted the assigned featured image. I'll do the same for others. Gonna be a long night.

    Thank you for your time.

  7. @writesquire next time give a few example posts and we'll try to come up with a better solution. Also, I'll move this to our CSS forums. Best wishes.
