    Hello,

    I’m getting started with the Newsy theme. I have a few questions/observations.

    1. Is it possible to make the “Reply” great button alongside the title of each post an optional button? I don’t expect a lot of feedback on these posts, and so the button is not necessary, and looks odd.

    2. Would it be possible to define the header image to appear on the home page, but not on content / news post pages?

    Thanks for considering these requests. My sense is that these options will make this great them more flexible for a wider range of users who like the layout, but may not have exactly the same needs as those with a super-busy news website.

    Thanks,

    – CS

    Hello,

    Here are a couple of solutions. Please let us know how they work for you.

    1. Is it possible to make the “Reply” great button alongside the title of each post an optional button? I don’t expect a lot of feedback on these posts, and so the button is not necessary, and looks odd.

    You can disable comments on each post by adjusting the Discussion settings. Here’s a screenshot: https://img.skitch.com/20120203-bkbt3ed5rq1mus1agi5393x1fu.png This box should appear under the post editor. If you do not see it right away, you will need to unhide it by clicking the “Screen Options” tab in the uper right section of the post edit screen.

    2. Would it be possible to define the header image to appear on the home page, but not on content / news post pages?

    You can add the following css styles via Appearance -> Custom Design. I checked your account and it looks like you have the Custom Design Upgrade active. This will allow you to set the header image just like normal, but it will only appear on your home page.

    #header-image{
    display: none;
    }
    .home #header-image {
    display: block;
    }

    Hope this helps!

    Hi CS,

    Were you able to sort this out with michaelfields on your end? Please let me know if you’re all set and I’ll close this issue as resolved.

    Hi michaelfields and iamtakashi,

    Thank you very much for your help.

    The exceptionally useful CSS code snippet you provided in response to question #2 was exactly what I needed, and seems to be working beautifully. Thank you. It also helped me understand how I can supplement the premium theme with my own CSS.

    With regard to my first question:

    “Is it possible to make the “Reply” great button alongside the title of each post an optional button?”

    michaelfields’ kind response did also allow me to turn off the large comments submission box on the post detail page, but it does not appear to impact the display of the home page, or perhaps my question was not precise enough. As a result, this issue, remains, and if you can point me in the direction of a CSS fix, that would be great:

    On the home page, there remains a Reply button near the title of each post.

    Example screenshot: http://insidesanluis.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/screen-shot-2012-03-04-at-8-36-05-am.png

    Is there a way, perhaps also using CSS, to suppress the display of this button on the home page display?

    Thank you very much for your assistance.

    Hello,

    You’re welcome! Sorry for any misunderstanding on my part. To hide the reply bottons on the homepage, you can use the following code:

    .home .entry-comment-popup-link {
    clip: rect(1px 1px 1px 1px); /* IE6, IE7 */
    clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);
    position: absolute !important;
    }

    If you notice, this code is similar to the solution I provided here

    It is possible to group the two rules together so that you use less code. Here’s what that looks like:

    .home .entry-header .entry-meta,
    .home .entry-comment-popup-link {
    clip: rect(1px 1px 1px 1px); /* IE6, IE7 */
    clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);
    position: absolute !important;
    }

    Please let us know how this works for you!
