    I am using Decor and would like to remove the featured image but NOT the styled date. In the functions file, there is a code that I can remove that will delete the featured image but it also removes the styled date, which I do not want. I am looking for the part of the code to KEEP the styled date.

    The site I am working on is:
    Thank you.

    /** Add post image above post title */
    add_action( ‘genesis_before_post_title’, ‘decor_post_image’ );
    function decor_post_image() {

    if ( is_page() ) return;

    if ( $image = genesis_get_image( ‘format=url&size=post-image’ ) ) {
    printf( ‘<a href="%s" rel="bookmark" class="post-photo"><span class="post-date">%s</span><img src="%s" alt="%s" /></a>’, get_permalink(), do_shortcode( ‘<em>[post_date format="j"]</em>[post_date format="F Y"]‘ ), $image, the_title_attribute( ‘echo=0′ ) );


    Delete this function and use the next custom function in the file to add your post date using the CSS class for the .post-date.

    You’ll also see a block of code in functions like this:
    /** Customize the post info function */
    add_filter( ‘genesis_post_info’, ‘post_info_filter’ );
    function post_info_filter( $post_info ) {
    if ( !is_page() ) {
    $post_info = __( ‘posted by’, ‘decor’ ) . ‘ [post_author_posts_link] [post_comments] [post_edit]‘;
    return $post_info;

    You can use this as a guide on how to customize your post info keeping in mind the post date has a class and therefore contains CSS code already in the style sheet.

    I know this is not a complete solution because you will need a custom function written to do what you want.

    Here’s some of the CSS you’ll find in your style.css file which uses the class .post-date for styling. This class is removed when you delete the decor_post_image function therefore the styling will no longer work.

    There is more so you can see its a bit of work:
    .post-date {
    -moz-box-shadow: 0px 3px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.20);
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 3px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.20);
    background-color: #fff;
    box-shadow: 0px 3px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.20);
    color: #7d7d7d;
    display: block;
    font-size: 14px;
    padding: 20px 10px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 20px;
    text-align: center;
    top: -2px;
    width: 100px;
    z-index: 999;

    .post-date em {
    color: #b88e52;
    display: block;
    font-family: ‘Great Vibes’, cursive;
    font-size: 55px;
    line-height: 55px;

    .post-photo:hover .post-date em {
    color: #7d7d7d;

    I used Notepad++ to search and find all CSS code in the Decor child themes style.css file relating to the post-date class.
