I found similar questions to it but none was an exact match to my question.

I am using featured image in all my posts. I want to remove featured image on single post view from a single category (Say Video Interview) and not from multiple post view i.e. homepage.

In other words, From Video category I want to show featured image in homepage but when someone clicks on continue reading and is redirected to single post view or full post view then featured image should disappear. I want to put videos in my post without any text. So it would look odd if featured image shows up in single post view.

So, the code needs to be

1.) Category wise

2.) Only removing featured image at single post page

You can update the way image is displayed in template. in the page loop it will have something like this:

<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>

This grabs the featured image. You can wrap that in a conditional statement to check for whatever you like.

This would show it in every category apart from catgory 3.

<?php if ( !in_category( '3' ) ) : ?>

<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>

<?php endif; ?>

I got an answer to it on some website...

Just edit your css or add some css plugin (jetpack edit css, etc.)

.single .category-video .post-thumbnail img {
    display: none;

Replace video with your category name...

No need to change any theme functions...

  • Not the best solution as the user still downloads the image but glad you got it to your liking. – Guerrilla Apr 30 '15 at 14:44
