    my blog: http://portfoliosfriend.com

    hi, I'd like to be able to do something similar to what is done on each post from this site: http://wp-premiums.com/. firstly I want to remove my post titles because I do not want anyone to be able to go to the individual post page. then I would like to have a hover popup style box such as those in the above example site I fond, where I can have the post title and date. I dont mind keeping my postratings where they are, but it might be nice to move those to the hover box as well. is this something done with a plugin? or can I easily change the code to make this happen? if no one can help me set up the hover box, then at least I would like to be able to remove the post titles. thanks!

    you are suggesting I contact the blog owner and ask how they did it? well that might work, but first off it is a theme by wpdesigner, so it is possible the blog owner has no clue how to achieve that effect, and second if I owned a blog and got emails about how to do stuff, I'd be annoyed, lol. so let's see if anyone else here can help me out with it, and if now, then I'll email the owner. thanks though :D

    I would be more annoyed by someone trying to disect my site in order to duplicate parts of it. Especially, when said individual purports to be a 'designer'.

    ok, why is this such a big deal? I'm only asking for a little help. I'm sure there are tone of people who use that effect. I don't want to copy his site. how do you gather that from me wanting to achieve a similar effect? also, the only reason I responded to haochi's reply in such a way is because it was the least helpful reply I could have gotten. of course I know I can contact the owner, and I would most likely do that if I was using a theme that he provided, but I'm not, so I came to the helpful wordpress forums. now, if anyone would be so kind as to point me to a codex, or maybe even find it in the kindness of their heart o briefly explain how to at least remove the post title, I would be so great full. but please try to keep your smug comments to yourself if you dont have anything helpful to say. (in this case I'm referring to you, whooami. not haochi. at least he wasn't being a jerk about it.)

    how do you gather that from me wanting to achieve a similar effect?

    By your apparent unwillingness to contact the owner of the site?

    ...least helpful reply I could have gotten

    Not really, it's just not the answer you wanted.

    smug comments




    post titles : Have you actually looked at the theme you are using?

    <h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>

    Link to permalink page:
    <?php the_permalink() ?>

    Post title of that post that accepts parameters:
    <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>

    Post title:
    <?php the_title(); ?>

    Have a nice day.

    well thanks for pointing out where the code is I need to work with. I don't know why you wouldn't have shown that before. but still, thanks. I'm not as code savvy as everyone else here. I do my best to poke around wordpress and figure things out, but I can't always do it on my own. That's what these forums are for. also, I'm sure if I emailed the owner of that site, I wouldn't have gotten a response as fast as I would on the forums. It's too bad we had to go through all the bickering to get to this point, but thanks again for the help. I'll try to take it from here, and won't burden these forums any longer with this topic.
