Spun
[resolved] images not clickable (5 posts)

    Hi,

    First thanks for the work.

    I try to use the Spun theme.
    I would like images to be not clickable, that means when you hover the image there is no kind of link displayed. But the "texts" should have a link to a page.
    To make my vision clear : I want the home page not to display any menu or website title. But the other pages should... I will put links to pages in some of the circles of the Spun theme and I won't need them in circles. But once clicked, I would like the menu displayed as usual...
    So to sum up : no links on picture circles on the home page only on texts and no menus or website titles on this same home page (because you have them on text circles) but on all the other pages.
    How can I do that?

    Thanks a lot.

  2. Well to do this, you will first need to make a child theme and then make lots of edits to the theme files.
    I would first make a copy of the parent theme, set up your child theme and then start altering your theme files.
    You can just make copies of the parent files needed in your child and then edit them.

    I can't give you exact instructions, but you'll have to just dabble with the files in your child theme and do a lot of coding.

    Personally, I think that you are trying to do something a bit complicated which might frustrate your users and make them wonder what's clickable and what's not...

    Thanks for the answer.
    Ok so if this is too hard I will keep the images clickable.
    I thought there would be an easy way to say "if an image is displayed - no link" - "if text is displayed - link to the post"...
    So there is still something that I would like to do : erase the website title and menu on the home page only (it should stay on posts and pages).
    I made a capture of how I would like it to be (I only scrolled down there but I would like it to be like on the picture).

    I will put the links I want in the circles directly on the home page.
    How could I do that? Do you have an idea?

    Thanks for your help.

    "if an image is displayed - no link" - "if text is displayed - link to the post"

    That adds unnecessary strain on learnability and memorability

    Sure, but since you'll be setting up a child theme for the below change, wait until you have the child theme.

    Then, within your Child Theme style.css file, enter this;

    .home #masthead {
     display: none;
    }

    I will put the links I want in the circles directly on the home page.

    Thanks a lot Andrew for the instructive links and for the advice on how to clear menu and title on homepage.
    And I got it, I will do a child theme. I never did one but it shouldn't be complicated :)

    Thanks again and have a nice day.
