    Hello, Thematic is really different. In other ones, the blog title and description will be in the header.php file. But I don't see it, nor do I see it anywhere else. I want to delete the blog title and description in the header so I can put a banner in it's place. And I don't like the idea of putting the banner where blog title is. It doesn't work for me. Thanks.

  2. i just did the same at my site, and i got rid of the blogtitle by moving it out of screen, and added a display none for the description.

    here the code;

    #blog-title a {
    background:url(headers/rotate.php) no-repeat top center;
    display:block;
    text-indent:-9000px;
    width: XXpx;
    height: 250px; */the height of my image
    }

    #blog-description {
    margin-bottom:22px;
    display:none;
    }

    hope that helps

    No, sorry. I need to know the name of .php file that puts it there in the first place and where in the file is it at, line number if possible. Thanks.

  4. library->extenions->hooks-filters.php

    function thematic_blogtitle()
    function thematic_blogdescription()

    if you want to remove the header/description add this to your functions.php of your child template

    function remove_stuff()
    {
     remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_blogtitle');
     remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_blogdescription');
    }
    add_action('init','remove_stuff');

    <?php

    //
    // Custom Child Theme Functions
    //

    // I've included a "commented out" sample function below that'll add a home link to your menu
    // More ideas can be found on "A Guide To Customizing The Thematic Theme Framework"
    // http://themeshaper.com/thematic-for-wordpress/guide-customizing-thematic-theme-framework/

    // Adds a home link to your menu
    // http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/wp_page_menu
    //function childtheme_menu_args($args) {
    // $args = array(
    // 'show_home' => 'Home',
    // 'sort_column' => 'menu_order',
    // 'menu_class' => 'menu',
    // 'echo' => true
    // );
    // return $args;
    //}
    //add_filter('wp_page_menu_args','childtheme_menu_args');

    function remove_stuff()
    {
    remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_blogtitle');
    remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_blogdescription');
    }
    add_action('init','remove_stuff');

    ?>

    I did the above (my entire function.php file) and it did not work. It's still there. The blog title and description. I have the default theme with no modifications.

  6. You have to add the position numbers if they're declared in the original functions, which, in this case, they are.

    function remove_stuff() {
    remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_blogtitle',3);
    remove_action('thematic_header','thematic_blogdescription',5);
    }
    add_action('init','remove_stuff');
