What’s the latest and greatest on SEO, WordPress plugins, web hosting, and—my personal favorite—the best food in Austin?

I’ll keep you up to speed with that and maybe even drop a hint about Thesis 2 in this 9-minute video interview from PubCon South 2011.

After you check out the video, be sure to take a look at the new DIYthemes Facebook page, where you can interact with other Thesis users and see hundreds of awesome Thesis customizations!

Okay, there’s just one thing that’s really bothering me about this post. There’s no headline! What happened!!?

Martyn, this post is an aside, and I don’t show titles on those ;)

You’re the ultimate Wordpress hacker. The title shows up in Google Reader but not here. That scares me, badly.

Heh, it’s actually really simple—I only manipulate the HTML side of things and not the content of the feed. By default, the feed contains both the title and the content, so that’s why the title appears in the feed and not on the site :D

Hey Chris thats a really cool trick (the missing headline). Do you mind explaining where you edited the “html side of things”

Sure, David—with Thesis, “the HTML side of things” is extremely easy.

Thesis 1.8 offers a headline filter that you can use to show or hide the headline on a particular post (or type of post, which is how I handle Asides on this site). To use this filter, you would simply need to add the following code to your custom_functions.php file:

function show_headline() {
    return in_category('asides') ? false : true;
}
add_filter('thesis_show_headline_area', 'show_headline');

Whenever the show_headline() function returns false, the headline will not show. In the example above, the headline will not show if the current post is listed in the asides category.

Are you using categories as apposed to post formats? I guess it doesn’t make a difference. Swapping out in_category() to has_post_format() would do the same thing.

Jon, I’m using categories, but your point is well-made—thanks!

I was also wondering about the post title………. which plugins is you using?

Reply

Chris Pearson June 3, 2011

Sony M, I’m not using any plugins; I’m just using the Thesis Theme Framework.
