I'm having great fun with the Simple Catch Template (and altering the design to suit). One thing I can't sort out though is having an image on the home page featured slider, with the title of the post it comes from... but without the excerpt text.
So for example, I have a menu category called 'Books'.
I have a post entitled 'Children's Books'. It has an except text of 'We have a large selection of books for pre-school to young adult ages' followed by my 'read more' arrow which I want to keep when the user clicks on the 'Books' menu bar - so the except summary text will appear as a summary.
However, I do NOT want the except text to appear underneath the image on the featured slider/home page... but i still want the title 'Children's Books' and the readmore arrow to appear.
Checking using firebug, I can see that there doesn't seem to be a css code attributed directly to the except text - it appears in between the css for
.featured-text span and .featured-text a.readmore
I'm assuming that I will need to root through the files in the editor section of the admin panel... but this is a little outwith my experience and I can't seem to find it.
