Thumbnails on Homepage ONLY

Recommended Posts


This is driving me CRAZY. I want thumbnails showing on the left on my homepage ONLY.


I want ZERO thumbnails showing on the individual post page.


I have tried and tried to get this to work and it will not. PLEASE HELP ME.


I followed this tutorial here: http://www.pagelinestheme.com/controlling-post-thumbnails/


I've also attached a screen shot of my "current" settings though it's not doing what I think it should mean.

Can you provide a link to the site in question and also, use imgur for your images as your attachment image is really tiny.

Hi there. thanks for getting back with me. The image was only showing that I DO have "hide thumbs" clicked on post type.


Main/front page is here: http://greeneyedcountrygirl.com


a post that has a thumbnail but should not is here: http://www.greeneyedcountrygirl.com/chores-allowances-7-9-year-olds/


The "hide thumbnails" works on local post type but not global post type.

Follow these instructions, it should resolve your issue.


1. Go to your Homepage/Blog and create a template, call it blog.

2. Go to your single post and create a template call it single posts.

3. Whilst still on the single post page, go to Page Setup > handling and in the type option, select Local and save.

4. Now in the single post, go to WP-Content/PostLoop settings and select hide thumbnail and save.


If you navigate to your blog/homepage, it should display your post thumbs, if you goto one of your single posts, the thumbnail should be hidden.

      My sidebar is now showing up below the content, but only on the homepage. 
      I've tried disabling plug-ins individually, checking column width, and <div> tag errors on the page as well as in individual posts that are displayed on my homepage. I don't know exactly when this issue arose, so I don't know what else to try! 
      Here's the page link:

      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,

      MY PROBLEM : When I choose a Platfom 5 section (like Magazine or MagX or Pins ou Loops...) and I click on my posts : nothing happens, it reboots on the home page.
      Can anybody help me please?

      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.
