Removing Post Dates from Home Page

Recommended Posts

synwave

Greetings,

 

For some unknown reason, the date of the posts on my homepage has misaligned. I am trying to figure out how to remove the date completely from the posts on the home page.

 

Can someone tell me which template I need to edit?

 

 

 

Many thanks

Sam

Hi synwave

You can try add in

PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > CSS Rules

or in

Pagelines Customize (plugin)

something like

.home .date.time.published  { display: none;}

is only an example, add the code after  .home or .page-id-XXX

 

If you also wish to know how I find the page ID, all you need to do is load up FireBug or Google Chromes web dev tool and inspect your page html, at the top you should see body which has a number of classes assigned to it, one of these is page-id-XX (replace XX with your pages id value. I have added a screenshot to assist you.

It is advisable to learn how to do this on your own too.  

Check out 

http://support.pagel...ion/custom-css/

 

If you need more CSS help, make sure you've downloaded Firebug for Firefox

and check out W3 Schools for more info.

Hi Sam

I´m not sure but please try this, go to

Pagelines > Site Option > Blog and Post

and you see at

"Configure Full Width Post Metabar" or/and "Configure Clip Metabar"

you try delete the code after category and before the semicolon 

 

You can delete the date too, I believed that you needed remove only in you home page.

;)

Thanks Batman,

 

When I get to Pagelines > Site Option > Blog and Post

 

I don't see "Configure Full Width Post Metabar" or/and "Configure Clip Metabar"

 

I only see a drop down menu with the options of "Blog Layout Mode" and "Magazine Layout mode"

 

I have searched some of the main files for "&middot" but nothing comes up :(

 

I'll keep searching...

Thanks Batman,

 

I don't seem to have those options on my dashboard! Maybe my client is running an older version.

 

I guess I need to find the template which holds that code.

 

Thanks

HI,

 

Those options are available in PageLines > Site Options > Blog & Posts, they should be there regardless of what version your client has of PageLines Framework, as these options as far as I am aware, were available with the first version of PageLines Framework.

Nope. Not in mine. 

 

Here is what I see under PlatformPro/ Blogs & Posts/

Hi,

 

You're not using PageLines Framework, but PlatformPro, so this is the reason for everyone's confusion.

 

The vertical bar, also known as a 'pipe' is placed in the browser tab by WordPress, not by PageLines.  It comes from Dashboard > Settings > General and I don't know of any way to remove it without modifying WordPress core files.

 

If you visit your client's site in Firefox, right click and select "View Page Source".  Right at the top, you'll see the pipe built right into the site <title>. There are several WP support topics on this, but none offer a solution, thus I don't believe it can be resolved. This has the closest thing to an answer I can find:

Thanks Rob,

 

Sorry for the confusion.

 

Just to clarify, I'm referring to the "pipe" which is located beside the article category....not in the browser tab.

Hi,

 

You're using Platform Pro but posted in the PageLines Framework forum, the options we are referring to are only available in PageLines Framework. I have therefore, moved your topic to the correct location.

 

To remove all meta data, add the following to your custom CSS:



.date, .time, .published, .categories {
display: none;
}

I don't want to remove all the meta data....just the vertical bar that appears after the Category title.

OK, add the following:

 

 

.categories h8 {
color: transparent;
}

      The title says it all. I checked out the forum and the last post about this issue was back in 2012 and they suggested adding in the <ul> and <li> to the post's html. That's already there and so I'm sort of stuck. 

      And I actually had another question so I'll just post it here. 

      Is there any way to increase the height of the excerpts and be able to put a picture underneath the Title so that it shows up in the excerpt? 
       
      and is there a way to delete the revisions of posts? I don't want to take up unnecessary space.
       
      Thank you,

      I have a client who doesn't want the Social Like Buttons at the bottom of the PopThumbs Section pop up images.  I have explored every Pagelines DMS Setting, Word Press Setting, Pro Tools Settings; literally Everywhere in the site and can not find a way to remove these Twitter and Facebook buttons.
       
      Please tell me this is not so!  How can there not be an option to remove these.  Not all clients want social sharing/liking, and the extra clutter that goes with it.  If there is no way to remove these buttons from the PopThumbs Section, is there an alternative section I can use (Free/or Purchased)?  Either way I need a solution fast.  The client is getting angry.

      That link above is just an example site (not the client's site).  Just click on the PopThumb 1 and see the Bottons for Twitter and Facebook at the bottom.  I need those Gone.  Please help.
       
      Thanks,
