    Hey Dude – been gleening loads of answers to my questions from here (so many thanks!) – but 2 things i can’t see the answer to….

    1) I want to remove the category / author link below each blog post. I have done this successsfully, using the following 2 css codes:

    .blog-author.minor-meta {

    display: none;

    }

    .blog-categories {

    display:none;

    }

    However, there still remains a forward slash (“/”) which used to divide the category and author names. How do i remove this forward slash that remains?

    2) Below each new post in the blog, there should be a “read more ->”, but mine has dissappeared :( How do i get this back for all posts, so visitors don’t have to click the title but can also click “read more” too?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Alex,

    Try adding the following CSS to your Quick CSS (located under the Styling Tab in the theme options) or the custom.css file in the css folder of your theme files:

    .post-meta-infos .text-sep {
    display: none;
    }

    Did you modify any of the theme files directly? Are you using the More tag to designate where a post should be broken off for a preview or something else?

    If you have a link to your site we’ll see if we can spot something as well.

    Regards,

    thanks so much, Devin – fixed that “/” problem perfectly :)

    Regarding the Read More thing (under each post in a blog), I’ve edited a few theme files directly i think…but i’ve done so much fiddling i couldn’t tell you which! Not too sure what the more tag is – but i don’t think i’m using it…sorry i can;t be more helpful!

    The site is http://www.mysterybox.co – but we’re down whilst i finish building for now as we don’t want anyone seeing it until it’s cooked ;)

    Best,

    The more tag: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

    It allows you to put a separation point in your content to say what will be displayed on overview pages and what should be displayed as the full content.

    As for the issue, if you aren’t sure what you’ve modified up to this point it might be time to go back through and take note. Otherwise you’ll be unable to update the theme files when updates are released (without a major headache).

    Regards,

    Devin
