How Can I Make Oxygen Summary Posts Look Like Twenty Elevens? (6 posts)

    This is probably a pretty simple problem.

    But, how would I go about making my posts summaries on home/category pages in Oxygen theme look like those on the Twenty Eleven theme? While also getting rid of the Featured Image.

    Examples below:

    I want this section:


    to look like this section:


    Thank you in advance.

  2. You'll need to make a few changes to the CSS and your theme templates.

    The first thing you should to do is make a child theme - Codex: Child theme

    If you make changes and then there's a theme update, you'll lose your changes, so a child theme is always a safe choice.

    If you look in your index.php, you should see something that looks like
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    If you change that to <?php the_content(); ?>
    that will display the full article.

    But right now, your theme has a div that wraps the article header and floats it to the left and then the summary float to the right.

    You can either remove those divs (easier option) or edit the CSS (trickier, because it might be used on other templates.

    Thank you for the quick response.

    I've changed the <?php the_excerpt(); ?> to <?php the_content(); ?>

    But now I'm trying to figure out which divs I would remove to stop the header from floating...?

    Also, which php would I edit if I wanted my category pages to look like the index.php?

    Nevermind the first part of the last question.

    I found out which CSS tags I should change in order for it not to float.

    But I noticed that the navigation bar/buttons at the top are missing after changing from <?php the_excerpt(); ?> to <?php the_content(); ?>

    How can I prevent that?

    Can anyone help me with how to get the navigation bar to show up while using "content" instead of "excerpt"?

    I'm sorry but as you are using a commercially supported theme, you need to seek support from the theme's developers.
