Hack the Loop

Question

Posted · Report post

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.

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 [url="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/special-recent-posts/"]Special Recent Posts[/url], 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 */
