Featured pages on home : remove titles, buttons and text

Note : the following code snippet requires advanced WordPress developer skills. There's no guarantee that this snippet works as is with the latest version of our themes, and with the latest version of WordPress. That's why you need to always test any code snippets in a staging environment before implementing it in a production site.

You might want to display only selected parts of the featured pages block. on your Customizr front page.

As of now (v3.0.14) you can choose to show/hide the picture in the customizr option panel but there are no customizations options for title, excerpt and buttons.

This snippet give you a way to control the display of these content with CSS. In the future, it could be added as an option in Customizr.


Where to copy/paste this code? The simpliest way is to use the Custom CSS section of the customizer option screen. If you have many customizations to make in CSS and PHP, then a strongly recommend to create a child theme. Everything you need to know about child theme with Customizr here.


Hide the featured pages title


Hide the featured pages excerpt/featured text


Hide the featured pages button



I hope this will help and look forward to reading your thoughts and/or your code if you find other ways to do that.

      To keep this website clean and consistent, and since this post is more related on featured pages, could you please post this request in the Customizr support forum ?
      We’ll do our best to help and it will be useful for more people having the same need.
      Thanks for your understanding,

      Hi Svetoslav, I am not sure to understand what is your issue.
      If it is not related to the featured page, could you please report it in the user forum ?
      Thanks and I’ll do my best to help!

      • paul

        thanks Nicolas don’t know how I didn’t spot that I think it was one of those cases of looking at it so long ha by the way love the theme and appreciate all your work thanks for reply 🙂

  • luc

    I want to increase the font size and maybe move it a bit down, the pages list in the left sidebar. Right now its so tiny compared to the regular text. I looked for the code to do it, but cant find it or it seems another font size is taking importance somewhere.

    please advise. thank you

    • Nicolas Post author

      Hi Luc,
      Your CSS issues can be solved easily by understanding and applying the specificity and inheritance concepts in CSS. You might want to read this quick guide on CSS basics to be quickly setup.

      Now, here’s what I would do :
      1) Inspect the webpage with your favorite browser tool, then find the most appropriate / specific CSS selector to modify.
      2) Write your custom CSS code in the style.css of your child theme. (see how to customize the Customzr theme here if needed).

      This should not be that hard looking at what you have already posted here!
      Best regards

  • luc

    I want borders between the columns of the featured text and next. I looked everywhere to get it done, but wasn’t sure where to add the border css code. I only managed to get a border around the whole featured page box. not individual columns.

    Please advise. Thank you

  • Dave

    Hi Nic.

    I’m having some trouble with images in the FEATURED PAGES options. basically, I thought that the first image on the indicated page was the one that would show up on the home page, but I can’t seem to change it now? In fact I’ve deleted the image from the page, replaced it with a new image and the old image persists? What am I doing wrong?

    P.S. Love the template. I’m pretty new to WP but Customizr is so easy that I’m now using it for three sites!

  • Ruth

    I really love your theme. It has made the development of my site A LOT easier. I have one question. How do you remove the word “About” “Blog” “Contact” (title page) from the actual page. I really don’t want any of those words to show. Thanks a lot Nicolas!

  • Natalie Menacho

    Hi! I love Customizr! Thank you!
    Quick question: By purchasing the featured pages unlimited extension, will I be able to have ZERO featured pages on the homepage? I know it says unlimited, but I just want to make sure that includes zero. 🙂
    And by featured pages…I’m referring to the circles under the slider.

    Thanks!! 😀

    • Natalie Menacho

      Ha! I’m a total dork and figured it out! (disable featured pages. DUH!!)


      I really love this theme and all the support. You guys are awesome!
      Thanks! Take Care!

    • Nicolas Post author

      Hi Natalie,
      You can disable the featured pages on home in the customiz’it panel > Front Page > Featured Pages Options > Disable.
      You don’t have to buy the extension to do this by the way!

  • Patrick

    Hi Nicolas,
    sadly i found no solution here for what im looking.
    I’d like to remove the “article-container” from the frontpage which is displaying the featured pages.
    The Picture is showing which container i mean.

    What I have manged so far is removing the container with custom css code but that is also removing it from all other pages.
    I also tried it with customizing the index.php but its also changing all other pages.

    Maybe you have an idea or a solutin for what im looking 😀

    Thanks in advance

    • Nicolas Post author

      Hi Patrick, you don’t need to customize the code to do that since there’s an option in the customizer > Front Page > front page displays.
      There you can choose “Don’t show any posts or page”.
      Hope this helps!

  • Teri

    Is it possible to have the title of the featured page ABOVE the image? Currently it’s title, round image, the text snippet. I’d like title, round image, then text snippet.

  • Malissa

    I would like the Featured pages title to say “something” and have it link to anchored text on another page. So I don’t want to link the page, but a piece further down the page. Hope that makes sense!
    So of the 3 featured pages boxes, I’d like to have different text to link to a specific html link. Is this possible?

  • silvia

    Hello Nick, I’m developing my site with your theme and I love it. I have 2 questions: can I have just 2 featured pages? And can I put a background throughout the all site? Thank you

  • Ryan

    How can I make my disclaimer set into:

    display on one line?
    It is bunching it all up in the centre of the page into about 6 lines.

    PS. Love the theme and the support!

  • soulfree

    Do you think in the next version, given the choice to choose to have 3 or 6 or 9 featured-pages ?
    And have yes or no effect on images?
    Thank You

  • NickD

    Hi all.
    Firstly- this theme is really awesome and is extremely flexible.

    I have two questions about featured articles
    1. Is there any way to add additional Featured articles to the Front Page ?

    2. Is it possible to use the Featured articles to link to a specific CATEGORY page. so the page just shows all posts from a specific category ?


      • Nick Donato

        Thanks Nicolas.. I just purchased the Featured pages extension.. its working awesome.. I will take a stab at #2 later.
        Quick question.. Once purchased, can I use the Featured pages extension on another site or is only accessible for one site?

        • Nicolas Post author

          Hi Nick, you can use the extension on as many websites as you want.
          Share your webdesign (in the showcase) once you’ve done something awesome!

  • Jared

    Is there a way to hide the header block from a specific page (that is not the front page)? I have a child theme already setup but not sure how to define that I want an already existing page to not have the header.

  • Iris

    hi Nicolas,

    tried to look it up in the fora and in the snippets but couldn’t find the answer (or didn’t search right…. ;-). Is it also possible to add an extra featured image and text on de front-/homepage?


  • Merry

    Hi. I’m still learning how to work with your amazing theme. I’m trying to my own website and your theme is perfect for it. But I have some additional questions 🙂
    I want to add three more featured pages. How can I do that?! I saw a website with 6, so I know it’s possible.
    Sorry for my non-perfect English 🙂
    Thank you! 🙂

  • Ruud


    How can I make the background of the featured images transparent? Because I see a grey square behind the rounded image.

  • Marc

    Thanks !
    I just saw this by myself (by opening my eyes ^^) and came back here to apologize for this stupid question !
    Thanks for the answer anyway, I really appreciate it 🙂

  • Nicolas Post author

    Hi Marc, just choose a featured image when you edit your post and you should be good. If you did not select any featured images (“Image à la une” in french) then Customizr will pick up the first picture attached to the post.
    Thanks for your message and enjoy the theme.

  • Marc

    Hello !

    Thanks for this site and theme, I really love it 🙂
    I have a question about the image preview which is used on the front page set to “display the last posts”. Is there a way to choose which image from the post that will be displayed on the frontpage ?

    Thanks again for your great work!

    Hi Dave! Nice to be writing to you sir!

    Please, I am from Brazil and I would like you to help with something I havent been able to solve by myself.

    What is it?

    At the bottom of my page there is always this sentence “See more”, in any post we can see that.

    My question is:

    How can I move that?

    I dont want to see this “See more”!

    Can you help me to move thta away from there, please?

    Thanks in advance,
