    Todd, I used the following CSS to successfully hide author names in posts and in post collections. The “display: none” is the only new part of that code.

    .novella-entry .novella-entry-mast .novella-entry-author {
        color: #FFF;
        display: block;
        font-family: Lato,sans-serif;
        text-transform: uppercase;
        font-weight: 700;
        text-shadow: 0px 1px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
        display: none; /*this parameter is not in the original Novella CSS*/
    }
    
    .novella-collection-item .novella-entry-author {
        color: #FFF;
        display: block;
        font-family: Lato,sans-serif;
        text-transform: uppercase;
        font-weight: 700;
        text-shadow: 0px 1px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
        display: none; /*this parameter is not in the original Novella CSS*/
    }

    Cosmin, I had this issue too. I believe if you set the “Full Background Image” parameter to “off” you shouldn’t have this problem.

    Jenny – thanks for the info!

    I have used the custom CSS plugin and put in the needed styles, however for some reason, even this local custom CSS does not override the reference to an external CSS. My code below:

    body {
        font-family: "Libre Baskerville",serif;
        line-height: 1.8;
        color: #3E3E3E;
        font-weight: 400;
    }
    
    html {
        font-size: 1.125em;
    }

    There are other issues, like the background color, but I figured I’d start with the font first. I am new to CSS so not sure if this is right or not.

    The only thing I actually got to work is doing the style manually in each post using the <style> tags and putting that particular bit of CSS between them. But adding it to the Custom CSS does not work for some reason.

    Shouldn’t the style.css sheet just automatically override any external references anyway?

    Do you have any other advice, this is kind of frustrating! Thanks.

    Actually figured it out.. using the Inspector tool in Firefox discovered it is <p class="lead dropcap"> that is being used on that page. Tried it on mine and it works great. Though this still doesn’t explain why the “p” selector selected everything instead of just those elements enclosed in <p> tags.

    Hi Jenny, thanks for your response. Thanks for the useful custom CSS references, but I am not sure that that answers my question. The issue is that Bootstrap (and jQuery UI) both provide additional elements like buttons, tabbed divs, collapsible accordions, and other fun things that look pretty when you include them in your website. However, to do so, you need to reference the CDN so that it all works – for example:

    <!-- Bootstrap -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.2.0/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

    at the top of the page. That way you can reference all the elements like buttons, etc. and the way they should look.

    Referencing the .js file is fine, but the minute I reference the CSS file it mostly overrides the Novella CSS for the font type, font size, and background color of the page or post (but only these elements). I don’t think that this is a custom CSS issue but more of an issue of the Bootstrap CSS that is referenced overriding the Novella CSS somehow.

    Do you have any suggestions as to why this might be happening? Or how I could resolve the issue so that I am still using both the Bootstrap CSS and Novella CSS together so that I can utilize the elements of Bootstrap like buttons, etc. while maintaining the font type and other elements of Novella?

    Thanks!

    I know this topic is resolved, but on a related note – how does one access the CSS for the Novella theme?

    Viewing the “style.css” document in Appearance > Editor, it appears to be importing the CSS from somewhere else.

    /*
    	Theme Name: Novella
    	Theme URI: https://aesopthemes.com/novella
    	Author: Aesopinteractive L.L.C.
    	Author URI: https://aesopstoryengine.com
    	Description: A precision crafted theme perfect for writers and storytellers alike.
    	License: GNU General Public License v2 or later
    	License URI: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
    	Version: 1.0.4
    	Text Domain: novella
    */
    
    @import 'assets/css/style.css';

    So how would I go about editing this? Or at least copying and pasting it into the suggested CSS plugin to edit it?

    Just a note that I am also having this issue. Running WordPress 3.9.2 and the newest version of Aesop. But I’ve found that the problem only occurs if you try to edit the component in the “Visual” tab. I was using the character component and clicked the editing pencil icon. Changed a property and clicked update component. When I did so, WordPress moved the component to the very top of my post, whereas before it had been near the bottom.

    To get around this issue, you can click on the “Text” tab and edit the component properties that way using HTML and by referencing the help center documents that list and describe the properties of each component: e.g., https://aesopstoryengine.com/help/character-component/

    I’ve found that by doing this the location will be maintained. But still annoying.

    Nick – correct. The “Front Page” option was not available in Settings > Reading when all of my pages were published privately. As soon as I changed one of the pages to Public, then the Front Page option became available in Settings > Reading, and the dropdown menus appeared as previously mentioned! Interesting. Thanks for your help! (And am using WordPress 3.9.2)

    Nick – thanks for your help before. I figured out the issue. All of the pages that I currently had were Privately published. As a result, the “Front Page” and “Posts Page” options under Appearance > Customize > Static Front Page had no pages to choose from. I changed some of the privately published pages to public, and dropdown menus appeared under each of the categories.

    Hi Nick, thanks for your quick response! The only options available to me in Settings > Reading are

    Blog pages show at most __ posts
    Syndication feeds show the most recent __ items
    For each article in a feed show Full Text or Summary
    Search Engine Visibility

    so this doesn’t appear to solve my issue. Just wondering how to create the front page, and then tell Novella that is the page to use.
