    Hello! I need a Help, I don’t know what is going on, in the principal page in the blog, the dates of the posts are disconnect and with repetition, different from the original theme, please help me to fix this.
    Another question: May I put gif (short video) instead featured image? Just to the blog page look like alive. I tried and the theme disorganized. Can you have other suggestion, like a video loop autoiniciated?
    I have more one question, how I hid the search icon?

    The blog I need help with is:

    Hey! Happy to help!

    1. I have a feeling that might be caused by the theme translation. Ideally, how would you like those dates to appear?

    2. Yep! You can insert animated .gif and that should do the trick. Note that actual video formats, like .mov or .avi will not work.

    3. Sure thing! Would you like to hide this just from the sidebar or elsewhere too?

    Let us know!

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply, about the problems:

    1. Now It show the date twice, as picture (!ApFan2mteBBFgfwruivJkrLs-PMOiQ ), in Brazil we use the date as “DD MM YYYY”, without the need to use the timezone, if you could show the date this way it would be great.

    2. When using a gif instead of a image the resized gif has the quality heavily decreased as picture (!ApFan2mteBBFgfwqvTlH76D3bjPDKg ), maybe if it was possible to use an mp4 file the loss of quality would not be so big. It’s possible to use mp4 files?

    3. I would like to have the option to remove the search from the sidebar.

    That is it. Thanks

    Got it!

    1. I’m really not sure why the date is displaying twice. I suspect it’s something to do with the translations, which is a bit out of our controls. Would you be interested in hiding the date altogether? Might that be a good way to avoid and fix this problem?

    To hide the date, try this code snippet…

    .hone .entry-date { display: none; }

    2. Have you tried a .gif you’ve copied from the internet? I wonder if a really small animation .gif has the same problem (it doesn’t on my end).

    As it happens, .pm4 files cannot be uploaded as Featured Images in any theme.

    3. To hide the search icon in the sidebar, please try this…

    #search-site { display: none; }

    I hope this helps!

    Hi, thanks for the response, your code worked, the only problem was that in the featured post the display: none make the title overlap the main post picture, I solved using this code.

    .home .entry-date { visibility: hidden; }
