    Hi I hope someone can help!

    I've managed to remove the meta info from the individual posts however they still show on the homepage.

    Would someone please be able to tell me how to remove the author/date/comments information from the 4 boxes on the homepage? I am very much a newbie so basic instructions would be really appreciated.

    Many thanks!

    .feat-meta {
     display:none;
    }

    There is an alternative that looks slightly different:

    .feat-meta {
     visibility:hidden;
    }

    Add the above code to the `style.css' of your CHILDtheme:
    You don't have a childtheme yet?

    1. Install and activate 'one click childtheme plugin'
    2. create the childtheme
    3. Dashboard > appearance > Themes > activate the childtheme
    4. Make the changes in the CHILDtheme!
    - copy php files / css-file(s) of the original theme [as required] to the childtheme directory and edit them as required.

    How to find which CSS to change

    About finding out 'which things to change in your site [css / html / php]

    Well it's all a bit like trying to solve a puzzle.
    Fortunately there are good tools for that.
    In your browser: Install / activate webdevelopment add-ons / plugins.

    Recommended: 'Firebug' and 'webdeveloper: http://www.chrispederick.com '
    These tools will show you what's what.
    e.g. right-click > inspect elements > click left bottom arrow-icon
    click item in webpage
    Inspect css on the right
    alter css values to test effect / result
    OK? copy altered css rule
    paste it in the style.css of your childtheme.

    Alternatively:
    Press <F12> a screen will show in the bottom.
    Move the mouse over each line
    The area shows in the top-half
    Press + to unfold parts
    Investigate and alter on the right etc.
    paste it in the style.css of your childtheme.

    Is there any way to remove just the author, but keep the post date and the # of comments?

    The method above hides the entire section, and I'm having a devil of a time figuring it out.

    -Thanks!
