I am trying to customize the way the loop on the frontpage displays the content. Essentially, I have attached thumbnails to each post and I would like to have only the title and the thumbnail show. I think I can handle the php but having trouble finding the loop in pagelines framework. Can someone point me in the right direction? I have read something about a child theme which I installed but still cant find the loop there. I guess I am looking in the wrong place.

If you only wanna hide stuff, wouldnt css get the job done?

Maybe, but my understanding was that css only handles how it's shown not what is shown. The loop can get a lot of information especially if you do a wp_query. I just want to know where the loop is in pagelines. It seems they have hidden it away:(

This is a troublesome task you're trying to achieve by coding.

So, I'd suggest you use

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

, or, if you're using PageLines Framework, you can just select the various options (no excerpt, for example) and removal of the meta info in Dashboard > PageLines > Settings > Blogs And Posts under Clip Metabar (for Magazine Mode). Scroll down to Post Excerpt or Summary Handling and uncheck Posts/Blog Page.

hiding (not displaying) elements in css would be: #id {visibility:hidden; display:none;} /*With your ID */
