how to get rid of the silly word "thumbnail"? (5 posts)

    Our blog main page http://globalcitizenjou.tempwebpage.com/journeys/personal-journeys/india-blog/ puts on top of each individual entry the word "thumbnail", which is pretty annoying since it conveys no worthwhile information and only takes up space and distracts our readers. How can we get rid of it?

    Thank you for your answers. Unfortunately, I don't understand the first one. As for the PHP files: Where do I find them? I found some description of them at http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development#Template_Files, but that doesn't say how to access them. I think they should just be the default; I at least have not changed them.

    BTW, I looked at the source and it appears that the text "thumbnail" comes from the alt text, which, according to http://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_img_alt.asp, should provide "alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it (because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader)."

    I'm certainly not an expert, but what WordPress does in my case seems wrong to me for two reasons:

    1. "Alternative" to me means that it should replace the image, not display on top of it.
    2. Even if it did replace the image, the text "thumbnail" makes no sense in any of the applications w3schools gives. I wouldn't want a screen reader to read "thumbnail" in front of the excerpt.

    Just for reference: I also found the following, which may be pertinent to this issue:
