Changing the Footer Credits in Extra

One thing the Extra Theme is missing is an easy way to customize the links in the footer (i.e. the “credits” or “copyright” links). Here are a couple of options for modifying the links. Modifying the footer links using JavaScript If you’re comfortable working with JavaScript code, then you can easily change the links with something like this: <script> jQuery(function($){ $('#footer-info').html('&copy; 2017 <a href="">Extra Booster</a>'); }); </script> You can add this to the theme by pasting it into "Extra > Theme Options > Integration > Add code to the head of your blog", after anything else that is in...

Make Feature Images on Posts Link to the Image Itself

In the Extra Theme, featured images displayed on posts link back to the post itself. If you would instead like the featured images on posts to link to the image itself (i.e. the full / source image), you can do so with the following jQuery code: <script> jQuery(function($){ $('body.single-post a.featured-image').each(function(){ $(this).attr('href', $(this).find('img').attr('src')); }); }); </script> You can add this to the theme by pasting it into "Extra > Theme Options > Integration > Add code to the head of your blog", after anything else that is in...

Note that it is highly advisable to add it to the functions.php file of a child theme, rather than the Extra Theme itself, to avoid it being overwritten when Extra is updated. Please also note that changes to PHP files can cause your site to break...

Remove the “Share” Text on Posts

Posts in the Extra Theme are followed by a “sharing” section which lets users easily share your posts to the main social networks. As you see from the image above, these icons are preceded by the text “Share:”. If you’d like to remove this text (but leave the icons themselves), you can use the following CSS: .share-title { display: none !important; } To add the CSS code to Extra, paste it into Extra's custom CSS box, which you can find from your WordPress admin menu at "Extra > Theme Settings > General > Custom CSS". Paste it after any...
