Remove featured images frustrations

Hi from a new user. Trying out Sparkling, like it a lot!
One major issue for me, one I see asked about here - remove featured image either from posts or the home page or both. I’ve followed the answers to those questions and tried the solutions, eg, adding CSS code. In my case, though, no solutions. Instead, weird results.
For instance, if I add this code to CSS -
.single .single-featured {
display: none;
}
I actually get the image showing three times on the home page! If I remove the code, I only get two images :slight_smile:
Maybe there’s something about my site (a test blog for trying out themes, etc) or I’m doing something wrong. Maybe the latter as I notice that the first post on the blog is missing its title. Yet page source shows the content and code are there as expected. It just doesn’t display.
My test site running Sparkling - https://www.nevillehobson.com/sb03/
Insights, suggestions and advice gratefully appreciated, thanks.

Hey there

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 your theme on the below path.

Admin Area -> Appearance -> Customize -> Additional CSS

/*remove feature image*/
img.single-featured.wp-post-image {
    display: none;
}

That’s great, thanks it works!
Now trying to figure out why a post doesn’t display the title on the home page. Any ideas on that?

Hey there,

I’m glad it worked out.

I assume you’re referring to post shown in the screenshot i’ve attached.
This is indeed strange, I recommend re doing that particular blog post, copying over the content, then deleting it.
You can always edit the date the post was created or published.

Best regards,
Support.

That’s the one, and your suggestion is the solution, thanks!
I have a few more questions - I’ll add them as separate posts.
Thanks for your help, I appreciate it. Liking Sparkling a lot.
