How to NOT display post image (Text & Image seperately)

  • Hello

    I know this seems like a stupid question, but how can I NOT show the post image in a particular post? I want to insert the IMG tag as normal to include an image, but then in my template file I only want to show the post’s TEXT, as I’m using the Image-Extractor plugin to display the relevant post image elsewhere in the template.

    So basically, how can I ignore the IMG tag in the original post, or somehow use some paramenters with the_content to only show the text? Is there a the_post function?

    An example is here:

    The first image is shown as part of the post, while the second copy is being displayed by the plugin, at the point on the template I need the post image to appear.

    Any ideas?

  • Just had a thought, could I use the <—more> quicktag after the post text, then bung in the IMG tag after it? That way I could set my template up to only show the_content up to the <—more> tag and thereby hide the image? Then I can use the Image Extractor plugin to display the image elsewhere…? Does the <—more> tag work like this?

    Any other ideas would be gratefully received…


    OK, it seems it’s just me wondering about this, but if anyone else should come across this thread wondering the same thing, I have replaced the_content with the_excerpt which seems to be working…


    This would interest me to.

    I tried also the excerpt but this isn’t a good solution for mee. The excerpt reloaded also gives me problems with the excisting more tags…

    anybody knows how to remove the image from the_content?

    This would work:

    putin your css file:

    .hide img {
    display: none;

    end wherever you need it:

    <div class=”hide”><?php the_content(‘Read more…’); ?>




    In case anyone is interested, I did eventually find a way to do this, although I’m still working on the site.

    To display the image only I used the Image Extractor plugin:

    And then to display the text, I used The_Extract Reloaded plugin, which gives you a bit more control than the standard excerpt:

    That’s pretty much it, it allowed me to put the image under the text on the portfolio pages and have a nice wide graphic separate from the info.

    Hope this helps…!
