How to remove title on slider featured image?

The Sparkling theme has a feature to show the featured image of a post across the top of the website. I like this feature because it shows the entire image across the width of the page, without having a solid navigation background color surrounding it (like the standard Header Image feature does).

However, when enabled, it attempts to show the post title and an excerpt from the post. In my case, I only want the image to show. Is it possible to remove the unwanted content layered on top of the image and if so, how?

I have attached a picture showing an example of my issue.

Kind regards,

Just a bump on this… If anyone has suggestions or insight, it would be greatly appreciated.


Again, just hoping for some insight. Thanks!

Hi Cam,

I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

You can try achieving this by adding the following CSS code in the Custom CSS option of the latest version of Sparkling theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Sparkling Options -> Other -> Custom CSS

.flex-caption {
    display: none;

Best Regards,

Thank you, that fixed it! Much appreciated. Now if I can get the menu to appear below the slider I’ll really be lucky, hahah.


You can try displaying the menu below the slider by using the attached child theme of Sparkling theme that contains some custom code.
