    i have a featured image set for the blog post already but i want the image which shows at the excerpt on the blog homepage to be different and not the featured image again

    Is their a way to do that with generatepress? or may a plugin that can set a separate excerpt image? or handled by css may be?

    i have seen this on some blogs where the image on the excerpt that displays on the homepage is different and the featured image set for the blog post is different.

    And also, is there a way to turn of meta data like author and date on a per blog post basis?

    there’s an option to turn off the author and date in the customizer

    since i got simple css plugin installed and it shows a meta box on each post,
    some css can remove the meta data but how?

    Thanks for your reply

    Hi there,

    I’m not sure how you would specify different featured images without a new metabox where you can input a separate image for the single posts.

    What if you used the Customizer to remove the featured image on single post, and then manually added another image in your content? That way the excerpt on the blog page would use the featured image, and the single post would use the inserted image.

    As for the meta data, you can use the Simple CSS to turn it off on specific single posts like this:

    .entry-header .entry-meta {
        display: none;
    }

    Let me know 🙂

    exactly Tom, you are a genius. i did exactly as you said and it worked great. i knew i could turn off the featured image but i was making a mistake of using the ‘Read More Tag’ in wordpress which will screw the excerpt.

    thanks gain for your help.
