Thesis Theme for WordPress:  Options Galore and a Helpful Support Community
 

I’ve been converting most of my websites over to Thesis the last couple of months. There are a few little tweaks I’ve made along the way. I shared a few Thesis tweaks a while ago, I now I wanted to share some more of them.

Remove “Comments Closed”

You can turn off comments for individual pages or posts, but it still leaves the annoying “Comments are closed on this entry” at the bottom of the page. The following bit of code will remove that.

.custom .comments_closed p { display: none; }

There is also an option within the Thesis Options menu to disable comments on all pages. I think this will remove the line for any pages, as well.

Remove the “WordPress Admin” link from footer.

This isn’t a hook or CSS thing, it’s actually something you can do from your Admin Panel.
Go to These Options – Display Options – Administration – Show Admin Link in Footer.

Add Chitika After Posts

Most people have heard of AdSense, but not everybody has heard of Chitika.  Chitika is similar to AdSense, but it only appears when someone has used a search engine to find your site.

Basically, Chitika ads are invisible to your regular visitors, but are a great way to make money from Search visitors who are likely to bounce anyway.  Chitika Ads may not be huge earners, but you can use them along side AdSense for a little extra $.  Anyways, if you wanted to add them at the end of blog posts or pages, here’s the code to add to your custom_functions.php file.

/* Add Chitika */
function add_chitika () {
?>
<div align=”center”>ADD CHITIKA CODE HERE</div>
<?php
}
add_action(‘thesis_hook_after_post’, ‘add_chitika’);

Replacing Unordered List Bullet

I’m sure there are many ways to do this, but this is how I did it. You may not need the second line of code to pad the left side of the li elements, but I left it as a reference. Replace the URL with a link to your image file.

div#content ul { list-style-image:url(‘/_images/icons/bullet-white.gif’); list-style-position:outside; list-style-type:none; margin-left: 12px; padding:0 0 0 10px; }

div#content ul li {padding-left: 2px;}

    Thanks for posting these tips! I was searching for the way to remove the “Wordpress Admin” link. I should have checked the Thesis menus first. :-)
