    Have you modified theme files? You have an error showing on your site:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function php_e() in /home/knowhow/public_html/SRILANKALEDBULBS.INFO/wp-content/themes/pilot-fish/footer.php on line 18

    You should not modify ANY theme files - your changes will all be lost when the theme is updated. Instead use a child theme - this page explains how to set that up for this theme:

    http://wordpress.danielatwork.com/pilotfish/faq/

    See the Child Theme page.

    After you have that set up and the error fixed, post back with a link to your site and I'll look at the CSS you can use to hide the "posted on" line of text.

    Hi there

    I have the same request but I'm happy to not have a child theme as it's a static web page and will not need updating.

    Also, I would like to know how to minimize the space between the footer and the bottom of the widgets on the homepage. I changed mine to text and there is a substantial blank area now between the widgets and the footer.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    How is WordPress a static site? If you don't update, your site will likely have compatibility issues going forward - not a good strategy.

    If you are only making CSS changes, you can add a plugin so you can make changes in Custom CSS. And for any CSS help, you must post a link to your site.

    Thanks for quick reply,
    Here is a link to a page of my site: http://srilankaledbulbs.info/?page_id=2
    "Posted on by" appears in all pages, pls help.
    Is there any plugins to remove this?

    First remove this CSS from your style.css file:

    p.fimage {
    	line-height; 12px;
    }
    p.fimage img {
    	margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 0 0 2px;
    }

    It does not belong at the top of the file and you should not modify theme files.

    Add a custom CSS plugin like:
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-css-manager-plugin/

    Then put your CSS changes in that new Custom CSS space. If you've made other changes to the CSS file, move those changes to custom CSS as well.

    To hide the "posted on", add this to the custom CSS:

    .post-meta {
       display: none;
    }

    Hi there

    I see what you mean now about the child theme. I have already made changes to the php and css files. Here is the link to the website: http://www.tonybarbour.co.za

    Please help, I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks for quick reply.

    p.fimage {
    	line-height; 12px;
    }
    p.fimage img {
    	margin: 0 auto; padding: 0 0 0 2px;
    }

    above code is necessary to keep a png file in the footer, it was added externally.

    So how to use a child theme, pls kindly give step by step. I'll make a child theme using a plugin. Thanks!

    OK I'm going to create a child theme and start again. Will be in touch again once it's done.

    Good idea :) - there's actually info about making a child theme for Pilot Fish here - as it's slightly different -

    http://wordpress.danielatwork.com/pilotfish/faq/

    When you're done or if you run into problems, can you start a new thread? These forums just work better that way as it gets confusing about who's talking to who!
