Thank you for the codes! For #2, the space between the slider and the first post is still there. I suspect it is because of the slider so I changed the theme in NivoSlider to none, but now I still have the space and instead of the radial buttons, I have slide numbers there (in my case I have two images so the numbers 1 and 2 appear). I also have the words “next” and “prev” at the right and left of the images in the slider.
Is it also possible to remove hyperlinks from post titles?
