Remove featured image from post page
I’d like to remove the featured image from the post page. How can I do that?
I am using the Vigilance theme. It’s not great for featured images but I’d like to start using them as I am planning a theme change and I want my content to have featured images so that my posts wouldn’t look blank.
The blog I need help with is wordchaos.wordpress.com.

Hi, thanks for the quick response. I don’t want to remove the featured image. I’d like to hide it from the post page instead.
There is no easy and free way to do that. Also you are using a retired theme that no longer supports all wordpress.COM features and what’s recommended is to choose another theme. To browse free 3 column (two sidebars -right hand side) see here https://theme.wordpress.com/themes/features/three-columns+right-sidebar/?sort=free
If you insist on using the theme then be prepared to learn CSS editing and to pay annually for upgrades. See here for details on purchasing the annually renewable Premium bundle http://store.wordpress.com/plans/premium/ that contains a custom design upgrade required for CSS editing: Custom design – Frequently Asked Questions
After purchasing the required upgrade use this link https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/css-customization#postform so you can copy and paste your text into a thread that will appear in the CSS Forum where you will get the help you need.
Thanks! I thought this is what I am going to have to do!
Really appreciate your help!
Switch themes is easy to do and free of charge too. :)
Themes are just “skins” on WordPress.COM hosted blogs. You can quickly and easily change themes on any WordPress.COM hosted blog to another one found here http://wordpress.com/themes/ and no data will be lost or negatively affected by the change. The only time you may have to do some work is if you are changing to a dramatically different theme and have done any CSS editing.
Provided you are logged in as Admin under the same username account that registered the blog go to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes, Browse themes until you find one you like and click the “activate” or the “preview” link, or type in the name of the theme you want to use when it appears.
The theme customizer https://en.support.wordpress.com/customizer/ provides a preview function for exactly that purpose ie. so you can view what a theme will appear like prior to changing one.
Note that every theme will have a detailed theme description page with set up instructions and a live demo site page that you can consult. Here’s an example:
