    Hello! :-)

    I hope you guys can help me!

    I have some questions:

    1. Is it possible to delete the function that makes arrows appear on the left and on the right when there are more than one post...? I'm trying to make separate pages and those arrows keep appearing and they wont be useful for me. :-)

    2. Is it possible to change the icons for "post format", for example, picture format is a camera, is it possible to change to something else?

    Thanks a lot for your attention! :-)

    Hello Robsantos!
    Those are some good questions. Yes you can change the arrows or take them off if you don't want them on and you can change the icons to something else if that is what you are looking for. What is your website so I can take a look and tell you what you need to do to change it.

    Cheers!

    Oh thanks for ur attention!
    My website is english-pills.com.br.

    So... about the icons... I'd like to use an icon that looks like a pill (as my blog is called english pills) for pages and posts... if not possible, it can be a book or something like that... All posts will have a picture but for me the camera icon doesnt look fine. If you click vocabulary - body beautiful, you'll see an example of picture... (it's brand new so maybe you'll think it's messy and a bit empty)...

    Well... the blog will be based on pages that will have icons that will link to the posts... like the vocabulary - body beautiful... Thats why I dont want to have those arrows (left one for the "body beautiful" post) because if someone clicks there it will take him or her to a post that has nothing to do with what he or she was reading previously...

    Thats it... I hope you understood me heheeh, I'm not so good with internet stuff hehehe
    And again, thanks a lot for your attention!

    The easiest way to do that would be by adding some custom CSS to hide the arrows:

    .nav-links {
    	display: none;
    }

    Since you're already using Jetpack, an easy way to add custom CSS is to activate the Custom CSS module. You'll then add your custom CSS in the new stylesheet editor that'll appear in your dashboard, under Appearance > Edit CSS.

    2. Is it possible to change the icons for "post format", for example, picture format is a camera, is it possible to change to something else?

    Yep, that's also possible with CSS.

    The theme uses Genericons to display the post format icons, so it would be possible to change the icon to a different one through CSS.

    Do you see an icon here that looks like a pill? :-)

    http://genericons.com/

    Let's say - for the sake of example - that you wanted to replace the camera with the heart symbol.

    You'd click on the heart on the Genericons page, then click "Copy CSS" link at the top to find the icon's code.

    Then you'd add this to your Custom CSS through the Jetpack plugin:

    .hentry.format-image:before, .hentry.format-image:before, .archive.term-post-format-image .page-title:before {
      content: "\f461";
    }

    Just change "461" to another number if you'd like another Genericon instead.

    Let me know how it goes!

    By the way, the above code is for changing the icon of the image post format.

    It's also possible to change the icon for other post format types (quote, link, etc.) - you'd just need to adjust the classes in the CSS to reference the specific post format you're trying to target. It's also possible to target the default (Standard) post type.

    OH-MY-GOD! :-D

    Why are u all so lovely? <3

    It worked perfectly!!! Thanks thanks thanks, Kathryn!!!

    And it seems to be so easy with your help hehehehe :-)

    Just a question... to change other icons so I just need to change the word image, for example: ".hentry.format-IMAGE:before, .hentry.format-IMAGE:before" - so I change IMAGE by QUOTES, STANDARD, LINK, bla bla bla?

    And I believe that's all for the moment... Best wishes from Brazil :-D

    Wonderful, glad to hear it!

    Yes, that's the idea. To find the exact word for each post format, you can right-click on the post-format icon in most browsers like Chrome and Firefox to view the source. You can also view the page source in your browser. For example, in Firefox, it's under Tools > Web Developer > Page Source. Here's a screenshot of what this looks like:

    Good luck and best wishes from Canada!

    You're very welcome.

    Yes, it is very cold in Canada, but mostly in winter. It's a very nice 26C right now. ;-)

    Enjoy the theme!

    joek723 - glad to see it looks like you got this sorted out.

    Here's how the Gravatar in the circle works in Fictive:

    By default, Fictive uses the email address found under Users → Personal Settings to generate the Gravatar seen in the header. If you want to use a different Gravatar account, you can put in an email address in the Gravatar Email field, or leave it blank to remove the Gravatar entirely.

    If you still need help, please do start a new thread as Andrew mentioned above.
