[Resolved] Quick Theme Question

  • I’m using the the theme TheProfessional and I am unsure how to remove the “Read More” button from the 3 features articles on the home page. So how do I remove these buttons?

    The link for the website is HERE.

  • Hi,
    The class readmore is on the list page as well, so you need to only hide these on the home page.

    The three posts on the homepage are in a class called service.

    In the style.css try adding at the end!

    /* Custom Style Home Readmore */
    div.service a.readmore {
       display: none;
    }

    Note:
    The only issue is that these are post excerpts, so if any of these are more than the number of excerpt words the full post cannot be read.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for the reply but unfortunately that didn’t work. It didn’t do anything. Anything else I could do to remove it?

    By the way, the the theme has three other stylesheets to enable different colors on the theme. Would that info make a difference?

    Thanks,
    David

    In style.css find the following:

    #content a.readmore {
        background: url("http://64.19.142.12/fastprobateloans.com/wp-content/themes/TheProfessional/images/readmore.png") no-repeat scroll right bottom transparent;

    and remove the whole background: url(…)…; line

    That removes the graphic button. Are you trying to remove the text link as well?

    Thanks for the response, rafaminu.

    Yes, I want to also remove the text.

    The answer from rafaminu will remove the button from the post list on the archive page you had earlier as well.

    I see you have removed that page and if you are not using a blog page or category list then just use.

    #content a.readmore {
    display: none;
    }

    But it will remove the ‘read more’ on all posts and lists, so you will not be able to have a blog page.

    That’s a bit more complicated, just a bit.
    What I don’t understand is why would you want to remove a link to the original post?

    Anyway, in your home page php file look for the lines that contain:
    read more
    and remove them.

    More info here:

    Excellent, thank you so much rafaminu. That did the trick.

    iPT2gGeec (David),
    The style I posted first is being reset by another style, all you need to do is make it !important and it should work, it is showing in FireBug with a strikethrough.

    /* Custom Style Home Readmore */
    div.service a.readmore {
       display: none !important;
    }

    The !important will stop an un-important style from changing it!

    HTH
