Support » Theme: evolve » [Theme: EvoLve] Changes to HTML and CSS in recent update is a problem

  • Recently the developers make significant changes to the HTML and CSS in their most recent update 1.2.4 (I’m using version 1.1.8). I had made some customizations to the HTML and CSS. Because their changes were so significant (for example the basic structure of the HTML), I can’t make the update because it is incompatible with my customizations. How can I disassociate my installation of the theme from the official theme from WordPress so that it doesn’t prompt to update anymore?

    Remove the Theme URI line in style.css.

    Removing the Theme URI line alone didn’t work. By I did remove some other lines, such as Author and Author URI as well. And that did work. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Just increase the version numeber, starting from 5…..

    How do you remove the author line in the evoLve theme? it says written by, and I can’t figure out how to put a name in it. It would be better just to be able to remove it. You might have to be very specific in your directions. I am a beginner at this. 🙂 thanks

    Go to your WordPress dashboard and then Appearance > Editor > Stylesheet (style.css). The first few lines of this file contain the information you are looking for. You can edit it and click save.

    Sorry that I do not understand. This is what I am seeing and I don’t see where to change anything:

    wrong file…
    to remove completely the author line edit file function.php and delete line

    <?php echo evolve_copy(); }

    the function is in functions/functions.php

    So sorry. That just made an error message appear at the end of the post and did not remove the author “written by” text.

    Any other suggestions?

    sorry we are talking about two different things.
    I assumed you wanted to delete the credit line at the end of the page.
    The error is caused by too much stuff deleted on that line, i kept the line and cleaned up the functions itself.

    to remove the written by just on the home page like in my test site you need to edit index.php.
    the home part is in line 627, just cut out the echo written by…or all the line if you do not want the author name printed (but that will leave a thick line empty…:

    <?php _e( 'Written by', 'evolve' ); ?> <strong><?php printf( '<a class="url fn" href="' . get_author_posts_url( $authordata->ID, $authordata->user_nicename ) . '" title="' . sprintf( 'View all posts by %s', $authordata->display_name ) . '">' . get_the_author() . '</a>' ) ?></strong></span>
    <strong><?php printf( '<a class="url fn" href="' . get_author_posts_url( $authordata->ID, $authordata->user_nicename ) . '" title="' . sprintf( 'View all posts by %s', $authordata->display_name ) . '">' . get_the_author() . '</a>' ) ?></strong></span>

    I am getting close. Looking at your blog, I see it displays as:
    Date of blog MAURIZIO
    (on my posts it says Date of Blog and “written by”)

    I viewed the source code of your blog page to see how you had entered it, and where, but can’t find that exact verbage on the evolve coding page.

    It is very clear on the example, first line is original (starts with _e written), next line cut out first php statement

    <?php _e( 'Written by', 'evolve' ); ?>

    that will cut out only the written by, the name still print.
    if you want it cleaned you have to delete all the line (i think).

    Thank you so much! It worked! WOOHOO!!!
