To me, as a website developer, I am sometimes put off by this question, I’ll be honest. It just seems silly. Sorry. I know that it’s a legitimate question though, but, it takes me having to put myself in someone else’s shoes to really appreciate the question, and where it comes from. So, I will attempt to do that here within this post.
The Blue Mist Elegant Theme (used by yours truly) comes automatically showing thumbnails on the home page. Call me weird but I don’t really care for having to post thumbnail images on my home page, so I wanted to remove them from the Blue Mist Theme.
To remove the thumbnail images on the home page of the Blue Mist Elegant Theme:
- First you will want to make sure you back up your theme in case you make any mistakes during the process of removing the thumbnail images.
- Next you will want to open your home.php file via your WordPress Dashboard.
- Find the following
DIVtag and click save.
- Next you will want to cut and paste the following php code to a text file:
- You will then want to paste the ABOVE code directly under the following php code within the home.php file:
- Next you will want to delete the following
DIVtag from the home.php file:
- Lastly go to the stylesheet and edit the
DIV homepost-rightclass to move the home page content more to the left, you will want to change the “float” to say left:
When you are finished editing the home.php file you will want to go follow steps 1-6 within the index.php file.
Fancy signatures at the end of a blog post has become extremely popular. Custom signatures add a touch of personality to every blog.
In this tutorial we will walk through how to create a custom signature to your WordPress blog to where it shows up after every post and page of your blog.
Step #1 First you will want to actually design the custom signature. I like to use the dimensions 200×35 pixels for the design. Once you are done creating the custom signature you will want to save the image as “siggy.gif” – without the quotations.
Step #2 After you design the image you will want to upload it to your web server via FTP. Be sure to upload the image to ==> wp-themes/Your_Theme_Name/images directory.
Step #3 Once your image is uploaded to the appropriate directory, copy the following image code:
Be sure to pay attention to the name of your images directory. And if you need to change the directory in the code above do so where is says “images.”
Step #4 You will then want to copy and paste the image code above within your index.php, single.php, and pages.php AFTER the following code:
You should now see your custom signature at the end of every blog post and page.
