Support » Theme: Ryu » Hide (!) featured image on homepage for standard posts

  • Hi everyone,

    I have been totally in love with this theme which, I think, beats 99.9% of all these bloated “pro” themes out there.

    I have a question: I would like to keep the featured image on all my posts, but I would like to hide it for standard posts on my homepage and the (paginated) subsequent pages.

    I have no idea if this is possible, but maybe someone has some input here?

    Just as clarification, this is how it should work:

    a) On my homepage and the subsequent paginated pages for all my posts, all standard posts should NOT display the featured image, but when the post is displayed as a single post, the featured image is displayed as intended.

    b) For image posts, gallery posts and all the others that do have a featured image, I’d like everything to stay the way it is.

    c) It would be perfect if this would also be possible for category pages, meaning the standard post format shows no featured images, all the other post formats work as intended by the designer/programmer.

    Any input is welcomed.
    Thanks for reading.


    P.S.: There is one more thing I noticed and I’m not quite sure if it is intended behavior or just me having screwed things up.

    Each post format has that unique small circular icon on the right side. I have mostly standard posts and here the icon does nothing upon hovering over it. From the theme demo I inferred though that the icons are supposed to link to the post format archives, meaning when I move over those icons, it becomes clear that it is a link to an archive listing for that post format.

    So, my “unlinked” standard posts … my fault, intended behavior or bug?

    Again, love the theme, the clean programming and the openness for plugins etc., meaning I love the standards compliance of Ryu!

    Hi deus62 – glad you like Ryu! What you describe is likely possible with some custom CSS. display: none is the CSS code that hides specific elements on a web page, and it can be applied to particular types of pages, posts, archives, etc.

    Do you have Jetpack or a standalone custom CSS plugin running, or are you using a child theme?

    Could you please provide a link to your site so I can take a look directly? It will also help for your p.s. question. Thanks!
