Support » Plugin: Conditionally display featured image on singular posts and pages » Slight change through child theme

  • Resolved linux garage


    I’d like to simplify the phrase in the meta box to —– Hide Post —-.

    How would I go about doing this through the child theme.

    (The meta box currently states —- Display featured image in post lists only, hide on singular views —-.)


    A slight copy edit for an excellent plugin. Does exactly as it claims straight out of the box. Straight forward and simple to use.

    Thanks for your question and the great review. Unfortunately, customizing this text is currently not possible. I’ll have a look, if there is an easy way to change that, in a future release. I’ll let you know by the end of the week.


    Thanks Cyril for your reply.

    I would use “Hide Featured Image on Post” —- or “Hide on Post” —- something in plain English.

    “Hide on singular views” and “display on post lists” are phrases from a specialized language that WP developers understand.

    But the meaning of these phrases are opaque to, for example, a person who is new to the dashboard and will only be writing occasional posts.

    A slight change in wording but shifting to a broader audience.


    Once again, thanks for a great plugin.

    It took me a while to find some time, but now I finally updated the plugin and added a hook, so you will be able to easily change the label of the checkbox. Just add the following snipped to your functions.php after updating the plugin:

    function change_conditionally_featured_image_label( $label ) {
        return 'Hide featured image in post'; // change this string
    add_filter( 'cibocfi_checkbox_label', 'change_conditionally_featured_image_label' );

    See also the newly added FAQ.

    Please let me know, if you have any further questions.

    Thanks so much.

    I wasn’t expecting you to make the change.

    My thought is that many WP users are not developers — so using “plain English” makes it easier on new WP users.
