[resolved] is_single and NOT is_home (8 posts)

    Just currently using an if statement so that the Entry Meta footer (includes all article tags and dates) is not shown on the Excerpt posts list .

    Using the <?php if ( is_single() ) : ?> function currently works , however, as my homepage is an actual page created in wordpress with some content - the entry meta footer is not excluded from this if statement.

    Ive been trying <?php if ( is_single() && !is_home() ) : ?> but hasn't worked.

    Any suggestions as to what else I might be able to try ?

    Could you post the url?

    Have you tried adding is_front_page

    if ( is_single() && !is_front_page() )
    if ( is_single() && !is_home() && !is_front_page() )

    Tried those both and I still get the '<footer class="entry-meta">' appearing on the homepage as I've wrapped the php if tags around the entire footer

    What file did you edit?

    I see that all the content-xxx.php have
    <footer class="entry-meta">
    Why exactly are you trying to remove it?
    I'm not seeing any <footer class="entry-meta"> on excerpts.

    I'm editing content.php

    I've added a border-top to the footer class ="entry-meta", therfore whilst the remaining entry meta data is not displayed in the homepage, the thin grey border-top still remains,

    The <?php if ( is_single() ) : ?> worked fine for the excerpts , which is exactly what i want, but on the homepage you'll notice a very thin grey line under the slideshow.

    Would hiding it through CSS be acceptable?

    Combining your is_single() solution with
    .home footer.entry-meta {display:none;}

    Ah i've just realised - due to homepage being a page with content - i should be editing Content-Page.php which has its on entry meta footer. I've commented this footer code out and that has resolved the issue.

    Thanks for your help
