Remove folded banner in Minimatica

  • I have been searching the web for several days, trying to discover the easiest way to delete the black fold over banner that appears on a post thumbnail in the Minimatica blog.

    There are discussions about this issue on the Internet, but no real solution and/or the threads are dead.

    I’d truly appreciate help. Thanks so much!

  • do you want to remove the enire overlay? it looks like that text is not part of the post text, so it’s no excerpt. is it part of the title?

    “Private Residential” says “extend or build” under it, but I don’t see that in the post content or in the title.. what is that?

    yes i want the whole thing gone (its been refered to as a ‘caption’)

    The text in the caption is the title of the post with the except underneath…. It clashes with my image

    I thought you were suggesting if the excerpt was removed the whole thing would go. To be honest I have asked the question a few times so not sure who-I-asked-what at this point.

    it’s okay, these things aren’t always easy to commnicate.
    give me a moment..

    try this:

    .kwicks .post .entry-container {
     display: none;
    }

    it’s hard for me to tell with this one, but if not I’ll get it eventually. I’ll go to my own site later and it wil be easier to test.

    Right well, you would think that looking at my lap top this suggestion had no effect, but having checked my other lap top, this shows the grey box has now gone and the the text is in the top left corner of each post slide.

    I have been having issues with my lap top not showing updates for a couple of days, really messed me up on Monday. Today I tried to align my Maxbuttons horizontally and they look great on my laptop but different on every other device. On my other lap top it looks like there is one big ugly button. Its driving me nuts as I am losing confidence that my laptop is showing me changes as I go along, and as this is all experimental, that is not good!

    I have checked the screen resolutions are the same on both laptops and I have deleted my cache files. I am worried that I am not actually seeing the true site as I am working.

    could also be the browser, I know we can get rid of it, obviously what I posted only effects the background, not the text. If we can remove the whole thing your laptop issue probably won’t be an issue as far as this goes. But I have to run and I’ll get back to this as I can.

    to get rid of the title try

    #slider .post entry-title a {
    display: none;
    }

    to get rid of the caption and title try

    #slider .post entry-title a, #slider .wp-caption {
    display: none;
    }

    if it’s an excerpt, and not a caption,

    #slider .entry-summary, #slider .post entry-title a {
    display: none;
    }

    I have tried the first two but as my browser is taking ages to update any changes I am not actually sure if it has worked…

    The background of the caption has now been removed on my lap top display (its has caught up with us from yesterday)

    I could not find a section to replace for;

    #slider .post entry-title a, #slider .wp-caption {
    display: none;
    }

    So I added it under

    #slider .post entry-title a, #slider .wp-caption {
    display: none;
    }

    same for

    #slider .entry-summary, #slider .post entry-title a {
    display: none;
    }

    looks like this now;

    #slider .post,
    #slider .post entry-title a {
    display: none;
    }

    #slider .post entry-title a, #slider .wp-caption {
    display: none;
    }

    #slider .entry-summary, #slider .post entry-title a {
    display: none;

    }

    I left it over lunch and when I came back my post were missing so I have put it back to how it was before.

    I need to sort out the issue of the delay on my comp first I think.

    I have a feeling you are changing your original code, don’t do that, add all mods at the bottom of the style sheet, they will over ride all the original that comes before.

    I suggest replacing your entire style sheet with default and redo your changes at the bottom.

    Thanks, I have already put the default code back in so will try that when i get back onto it.

    I also got a plug-in to dump all the WP cache and think it helped with the delay in updating the site.

    All I need now is the magice link 🙂

    I did it!

    <a class="overlay" href="
    
    <?php
    $the_cat = get_the_category();
    $category_name = $the_cat[0]->cat_name;
    $category_link = get_category_link( $the_cat[0]->cat_ID );
    ?>
    <?php echo $category_link ?>" title="<?php echo $category_name ?>"><?php echo $category_name ?>
    "
    </a>

    use the above in loop-slider.php
    instead of :

    <a class="overlay" href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark">
    
    </a>

    this will link all posts in the slider to their categories, however if you open categories in the slider, I’m not sure how that will work.

    we may need to modify the code with a conditional so it only works in a category you will create for your “category-posts”

    so the entire code shoudl be:

    <?php if(is_category('your-category-name') ) { ?>			
    
    <a class="overlay" href="
    
    <?php
    $the_cat = get_the_category();
    $category_name = $the_cat[0]->cat_name;
    $category_link = get_category_link( $the_cat[0]->cat_ID );
    ?>
    <?php echo $category_link ?>" title="<?php echo $category_name ?>"><?php echo $category_name ?>
    "
    </a>
    
    <?php } else { ?>
    <a class="overlay" href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" rel="bookmark"></a>
    <?php } ?>

    actually, that’s no good, because if you put all the category link-posts in a common parent category , I think that’s what they’ll link to! we need a way to make them link to their child categories.
