Excerpt-less sliders

  • kaonevar


    Love the slider.

    But I would love it more if it could be a rotating full-size image (featured image) that links to the page/post, without showing an excerpt. Sort of similar to the images good ‘ole George has on his site:


    Is that possible in the settings?

    Possible with some light modification?

    There’s no option for that, but you can easily hide the excerpt with some Custom CSS. Please provide the URL to your site so that we can take a look.



    I know it can be done by hiding html code, but css?

    Where in the world would I do that? I didn’t know the CSS even messed with displaying the excerpt. I figured that would be in the html for the theme.

    HTML is for content, CSS is for the appearance. Yes, ideally you would remove the HTML for the excerpt, but this cannot be achieved easily without using a child theme and writing some PHP codes. So the easiest option is to use CSS to tell browsers to not display the excerpt, even if the HTML code is there. Graphene already has an option for inserting custom CSS in Graphene Options > Display > Custom CSS.



    For me, removing the call for the excerpt in the HTML and PHP is far easier than doing it via CSS. I honestly don’t even know how to do that in CSS (I’m stronger in my HTML and PHP than CSS these days).

    My problem is that with all the files this theme created, I can’t even figure out where the HTML is that calls for the excerpts. Can you point me in the correct direction? Or baring that, explain how I would do this in CSS?

    As for the URL, it’s in my sig. 🙂

    Just add this code to Graphene Options > Display > Custom CSS:

    .slider-entry-wrap {
    display: none
