    Hey there.

    I'm running Neumatic+ (thematic child theme), and I've created a new page using the custom "Blog" template, but I want to edit the way it displays posts a little. I can't seem to find where the template file for this is?

    I've opened up "template-page-blog.php", but it doesn't seem to have anything I can edit, mainly to get rid of the post featured image thumbnail.

    Can anybody help? :)

  2. little is available in template-page-blog.php to be edited manually as thematic does everything by filter and action hooks. if you follow the thematic_indexloop() hook into the extensions folder, you'll see the thematic_index_loop is added to that loop. within that function you'll find thematic_content() which is the function that determines how excerpts and full posts are displayed. this allows for crazy-high levels of granular control, but is also confusing to new people.

    1. why are you using the blog template? can't you just set your Reading Options? I ask, b/c we're discussing deprecating this template.

    2. once you've found thematic_content you'll see that you can filter the thumbnails off completely.

    function kia_kill_thumbnails(){
      return FALSE;
    }
    add_filter('thematic_post_thumbs','kia_kill_thumbnails');
