Sub-heading on posts with full-width image style

    In almost all of the posts of my website I use the format where the image is displayed full-width with the title of the post on top in white. I think this is the most attractive design choice – it is triggered by having an excerpt on the post, but I didn’t actually want to display anything, so would just insert a blank space via one tap of the space bar in the excerpt field. A recent update to the theme means now the first sentence of the post is automatically inserted as a sub-heading (under the main title, still imposed on top of the full-width image). There are a couple of problems with this: 1. the sub-heading is always in black, so is almost impossible to see on most images I use. By contrast the title is always in white. 2. I actually don’t want a sub-heading on my posts, just the title, but it seems it is no longer possible to utilise the full-width image design for posts without a sub-heading.

    Is it possible to change this so ideally there can be no subheading as before, or if not, just a blank bit of space. And if not, at the very least could the sub-heading colour be changed to white?

    Hi @profjohnwyatt,

    I’m so sorry for my late reply and that we had to change the theme design in a recent update.

    I had a look at your latest blog posts and I could not see the sub heading there any longer. Did you already made some changes to it, so the issue does not apply any longer?

    If not, could you maybe send me a link to a posts where the layout is still not the way you want it? This way I could try to provide you with some CSS code to change the style of the post.

    Thanks so much for your patience,

    Hi Ellen,

    Thanks for getting back to me. I have changed the layout on my most recent posts to avoid the problem, but here is what an older one looks like:
