[resolved] Make Oxygen theme static (remove date, author, comments etc) (8 posts)

    I am trying to use the Oxygen theme like a complete static website. I really love the 'magazine' style of the theme with the big pictures etc.
    The website where I can use some help with is bawa.byethost32.com
    I am making this website for a friend and don't get any money for it. It is just for fun because I would like to find out how WordPress works. Sorry if I make any mistakes in my English.
    The things I want to change to make it a good static website:

    1. Remove date, author and category from posts (or link the 'featured images' of the front page to pages, but don't think this is possible). I used this plugin: the date exclusion SEO (http://bluecowhosting.com/blog/wordpress-plugins/date-exclusion-seo-plugin/). This one worked, but left the author and category. Right now I deactivated the plugin again) Is there a way to remove this line completely and make it look like a real page? I don't mind making a post and a page that looks to be the same, the text won't change that much because it is a static website.

    2. Is it possible to remove 'recent articles' and 'more articles' on the front page? I tried to figure this out in the other posts on this forum, but they tell me to make a child theme in my wordpress folder on my computer, but I don't have the wordpress folder on my computer (probably because this is not the computer I started on?) Do I need to download wordpress on this computer and will I get the oxygen theme folder on this computer (i downloaded this theme true the wp-admin dashboard).

    3. Is it possible to remove the 'comments are closed...... ' from the posts? Same as 2. found it a couple of times, but need the child theme solution.

    4. Is it possible to remove the --> 'text' and <-- 'text' under the posts? I will not use it if I use them like a page instead of a post.

    5. Last thing I want to delete the date from the featured slider, but I found that a couple of times at this fora too, only the child theme problem again.

    ok, worked it out all by myself :)

    Don't think it is possible to like the featured images on the front page to link to a page, so found a way to make the child theme work (my FTP put it in a different folder, so couldn't find the themes before) and made the posts behind the images (almost) the same as the pages I wanted them to link to.

    If there is anyone who wants to know how i fixed it, just ask.

    I am looking to remove the Author from each post and the date from the Featured posts in the Slideshow. I would love to hear how you accomplished this. Thanks!

    I would also like to know how to remove the Author, Time and Date from the post.
    Can you explain how you were able to do this. Thank You

    @darasy : I found that customizing the CSS is a clean method for me to accomplish what I want rather than using a child theme. Adding the following to the Custom CSS under "Appearance | Edit CSS" will hide Author, Time, and Date.

    .byline {
        visibility: hidden;

    I will always advice you to work with a child theme, because a update will automatically change your CSS. So first make a child theme!

    It is a while ago when I changed it, I think I took this part out of the post.php:

    <?php echo apply_atomic_shortcode( 'byline', '<div class="byline">' . __( '[entry-published] · by [entry-author] · in [entry-terms taxonomy="category" before=""] [entry-edit-link before=" · "]', 'oxygen' ) . '</div>' ); ?>

    But PLEASE use a child theme

    I am using the Child theme (for the first time) as recommended by @zoedor. If so, then what would I need to change to remove the date and author? Do I do something in the Editor? I can understand how to remove something from the main theme, but in the Child theme, I only see the functions.php and style.css, but I don't think I should touch anything there.
