    Hi Kevin, I’m a regular WP Snipp reader and I have to ask this, on the top right of your sidebar you have the single best looking RSS/Facebook display I’ve ever seen. Is that a plugin or did you code it yourself?

      Hi James,
      Very nice to hear thanks! This was not a plugin I wrote the HTML, CSS and the icons I got from a few free icon sources and I created a few like design poke and design bump. I posted the code and a link to the images on pastebin if you wanted to do something similar.

    Can you also remove the thumbnail support for a specific page template?

      If you don’t want to display a thumbnail within a page template you should just remove the code that adds your thumbnails from the template.

        function zd_remove(){
        $post_id = $_GET[‘post’] ? $_GET[‘post’] : $_POST[‘post_ID’] ;

        // checks for post/page ID
        if ($post_id = array(10,11,12,13))
        remove_post_type_support( $post_type, $supports );

        add_action(‘add_meta_boxes’, ‘zd_remove’);
