How to remove title and only show thumbnails? (7 posts)

    Hello,

    I am trying to use this plugin inside of a widget in the footer area of my page, but only want the thumbnail to show up linking to the post and not the title. I tried using title=no, title_tag=no and title_class=no but the titles still displayed.

    Also, I would like the thumbnails stretched so that the pictures all had the exact same dimensions, which in my case are 185 x 180.

    Can you please tell me what I need to add in the shortcode in order to accomplish this? I can't change any of the hard coding of this plugin for I use it in many other pages throughout my site. Thanks so much for your help!

    I'm also trying do something similar. I only want the thumb and excerpt to show. Right now the Title, Thumb and excerpt are showing.

    I want to manually put the title in the excerpt so that I can mark it with microdata. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks,

    Is there a way to show the featured image?

    There's no functionality to not-show the title right now. But you can use this parameter to hide it with CSS:
    title_class
    Just pass the name of a CSS class with a "display:none" and the title will be hidden.

    Check Other Notes, under the title HTML & CSS Customization to read more about it.

    Hi, I'm trying to hide the title as well. I tried including the parameter title_class but this doesn't seem to be working... I do not see the class being outputted in my code... Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I needed to do this also, so I just created a new custom template. This might not work in all cases, but it worked for me.

    FYI, if you add display:none to the title using title_class, keep in mind that that element simply disappears. An alternative is to use the visibility property to hide it but retain it, like so:
    visibility: hidden;

    I found I needed to retain but hide it when my category excerpts with thumbnails weren't aligning properly; when the excerpt was short, the thumbnails disturbed the next entry. By keeping the title element but hiding it, it forces a line break to ensure that the next entry isn't disturbed. (A little like in a post when the next header forces a new line below an image, instead of a wrap around it.)
