  1. This looks great, thank you! On my website (http://backpackersunion.com) I want to remove the featured image that sits over the post titles, but I still want a thumbnail image generated from the featured image when the site is viewed from a phone or small screen. Do you know if this is possible and what .php file would need to be modified in my child theme? I was able to initially remove the image by deleting “” in the content.php, but this removed the thumbnails when viewing from a phone also.

    Thanks a million!

  2. @allaboutbasic, thanks so much for putting this together, #18 was just what I needed, I spent about an hour trying to figure out how to remove the comments from my pages but not from the posts, and couldn’t find anything simple enough (I’m new to css) in WP forums. You saved the day, it works like magic! 😀 I was wondering if you could help me with this one – I am trying to change the text color of the links in my footer widget. Just like what you posted for the right and left sidebars, but for the footer instead (not the hover color, just the regular color). I’d really appreciate any help. Thanks you!

  3. I have a problem with a twenty fourteen template. In the demo (http://twentyfourteendemo.wordpress.com/) you can see the left menu with separator lines, this even offers a drop-down menu called “flyout” menu. In my site karnhack.com not appear in the same menu the separator lines, and does not even appear the drop down menu… that is nested!
    How do I fix these two problems? thanks

      2. Hi Om, what it does it that it increases the main site-content area width, but it doesn’t decrease the content-side width. Moreover, when going from full screen to a smaller browser format, then the site content is even smaller then in the original state.
        So I left it for now in original site, until I find a suitable way to manage the content-side area width. What I noticed when making the the window smaller, is that the content-side area decreases nicely in size.
        I found on the theme side:
        “The secondary “content” sidebar (right) width is 306.”
        Wouldn’t it be enough to change this value? Would you know in where that is defined? (I couldn’t find in style.css)
