  • Resolved hiscause


    Greetings WPer’s

    Sure could use your opinion and pick your brain if I may. I would like to format my site similar to the way has theirs set up.(Removing everything and having the categories at the top, spreading the page out etc.) Would you mind looking at the site and letting me know how difficult this may be? Unfortunately my coding skills are weak at best. What level of skill does one need to make this happen?

    On a side note,I was trying to figure out how to remove the comment-edit tag in the post area. I went into the index and single php files from cpanel, removed the comment info and when I went to save the changes the window said…you cannot create the index.php file. Make sure path and file name are correct. They lost me there, any advice would be most appreciated.

    Thanks a bunch,

    Tom B.

    Have a look at the Cutline theme. It has the same kind of minimalistic design that you’re looking for.

    I was trying to figure out how to remove the comment-edit tag in the post area.

    The comment-edit tag? why? Only logged-in users with the appropriate privileges ever get to see that link.


    Thanks so much for responding. Is it possible to get the URL for the cutline theme, I couldn’t find it, not in wordpress themes anyway.

    As far as the comment thing goes, I must have been logged in when I put it in the address bar, seems no matter how I went there that phrase is always in the post. Makes total sense what you are saying, why would the public see a edit tag, (help me my brain.) Gonna log out of everything, enter it like anyone else would and see what happens.

    Appreciate your help,


    I’m sorry, this is what I’m trying to remove “Posted at June 12, 2009 @ 6:13 pm by 4hisway in Why We Exist”…at the top of the post.

    I got confused looking at things when logged in. I tell ya, I don’t know how I made it this far in wordpress. I’m much better at taping drywall.

    Thanks esmi for your advice and help.


    You should be able to download the index.php file using FTP (I think you can do this from within Cpanel, though it’s been a while since I’ve used Cpanel). Once you have it on your computer, you can make the necessary changes and upload it overwriting the old file.

    If you can’t figure that out, you could always hide the “Posted at June 12, 2009 @ 6:13 pm…” part by using the stylesheet with this piece of code style.css file:

    .post-top h3{display:none;}

    Please note: the first way I explained is the better option, the second one is a bit of a hack.

    Thanks Alexmansfield,

    I found it in the index file and removed it.
