Expound
[resolved] Help 'Removing' the Featured Topic feature from Homepage (6 posts)

    I understand that 'Featured Posts' can do some cool things...but how do I remove that 'feature' so my page displays properly?

    Here is what my page is doing now:
    header
    post #2
    post #1
    ...........sidebar widget
    ...........sidebar widget
    footer

    What I'd like it to do is (which it is doing on every other page except Home):
    header
    post #2.....sidebar widget
    post #1.....sidebar widget
    footer

    Thanks in advance - Dave

    Hi Dave,

    I guess that hiding the lines from 70 to 73 in index.php file, using a child theme, should do the trick.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Pothi - thanks so much for your response (to my newbie-ish question). When I removed those lines - my sidebar and post images don't show up. Due to the lack of support for this theme I've since changed to another one.
    Your response is very encouraging and I hope will help others.

    Thanks again - dave

    Your best bet is to overwrite or override the expound_get_featured_posts function in a child theme so that the theme thinks there aren't any featured posts and doesn't render the featured posts area at all.

    Konstantin,

    Thanks for the followup and response. But I would hardly call this 'resolved' for anyone looking for support...given the large list of files that "expound_get_featured_posts" exists in; what you've given someone (whom is not a theme designer) is a needle in the haystack and not resolution?

    @ds679, sorry if that response was unclear, you don't need to change any of the files where the function exists, you just need to take a look at its definition in functions.php and override or filter it in your child theme.
