    Hi Forum,
    I am a newbie to CSS, WP & GD.
    Just purchased GeoDirectory w/ Supreme & Directory Starter. I have activated Supreme Theme, so far, so good. I have been able to create 20 Places and they are searching perfect. But I have some questions:

    My site is hidden behind a “Coming Soon” page. I can send you a login if you want.

    1. I have installed Directory Starter, when should I Activate it?
    I have used the following documentation, but I do not understand when I should Activate Directory Starter.
    https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/themes/directory-starter/

    2. How do I remove the Featured Image on the homepage?
    I have found several GD forums talking about modifying the CSS, but I am unsure how/where to modify the CSS.
    https://wpgeodirectory.com/support/topic/css-code-to-replace-default-background-image/
    To replace the image, try this CSS, adjust as required:
    .featured-img {background-image: url(http://MY-IMAGE) !important;}
    To remove the image, use
    .featured-img {display: none !important;}
    To remove the whole image area, use
    .featured-area {display: none !important;}

    2.5 How do I modify the space where the featured image is located after removing the image?
    I would like to have a black background which the height only large enough for Welcome text, search box & Categories images. (about half of the existing size, I do not want users to have to scroll down to see the top of the text blocks)

    3. How do I modify the text on the homepage above the search boxes?
    I have looked through the Customizer but have not located where I can do this at.

    4. How do I remove the Near search box on the homepage?
    I have read the following page, but I am unsure how/where to modify the CSS.
    https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/faq/common-examples/#gd_search

    5. How do I center the Homepage and Location Pages?
    Both are defaulting to the left side for the page.

    Thank you for your time and effort.
    Scott

    hi stepnharp02,

    Thanks for your post. Please allow me to answer your questions accordingly.

    1. No, Directory is the parent theme for Supreme Directory Theme. You just need to activate Supreme Directory.

    2. Try using the custom CSS code below to remove the image.

    div#sd-featured-img {display:none;}

    2.5 Check out this section of the documentation https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/themes/supreme/#customize and see if it helps.

    3. Refer here https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/themes/supreme/#subtitle

    4. use this custom CSS code below.

    /*GDV2 Custom CSS - Hide the Search Near field in all GD Search Bars */
    .gd-search-field-near {
        display: none;
    }

    5. I need to check your Website in order to help you with this. Could you share your Website URL here? You can use the private reply option if you wish to keep your Website URL private.

    New CSS should be added to the Customizer.

    You can view all active CSS files by viewing the page source with the browser inspector as described here:

    https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs/customizing-your-style/

    Themes use SCSS, the files are inside the theme folder in

    assets/css/style.css and subfolders

    Once SCSS is rendered to CSS, you use the inspector to identify the element and see relevant CSSS rules. Copy the rules and change them as you like.

    You can try something like this and change it or add to it based on your requirements:

    
    header .featured-area.type-location {
        height: 20vh!important;
    }
    div#sd-featured-img {
        background-image: none!important;
        background-color: black!important;
    }
