I have a view in D7 that creates a table of meeting dates, agenda files, minutes, and other attachments which are all pdf's. I like the view so far but I don't want to see the image that is in the front of all files: application-pdf.png which is the file icon for adobe reader files. application-pdf.png I already have it set up to show the file description which works perfectly; just want to hide the preceding file icon which looks repetitively dumb... Firebug tells me the image class is "file-icon" but when I enter in .file-icon {display: none:} either in firebug or in a css file it doesn't hide the file. Wondering what's the best way to hide this little thing... I really just want to hide this icon in this specific table, not affect other views and tables.

Thanks for all the help.

  • There are number of ways to hide image but can't help you until you share some screenshot with us. I would suggest you share a screen shot of views and output screen with firebug that would describe your problem statement in better way. – Pushpinder Rana May 31 '14 at 6:53
  • You closed your css with a :. Put a ; there or nothing. – Marcel May 31 '14 at 19:43

It could be done simply by CSS. Use following:

 .file-icon {
    display: none;

  • Thanks. My bad concerning my original post. My css I was trying to use was .file-icon img {display:none;} Don't know why I couldn't include img but once I took it out it worked. Anybody know why img couldn't be in the css? Thanks everyone for the help. – Dave N Jun 3 '14 at 23:37
  • Your css is not correct.To use img in the css you need to write this: img.file-icon { display: none; } – Astha chauhan Jun 4 '14 at 4:49
  • My bad again.. Either way of yours works perfectly, mine didn't obviously. I wasn't being careful. Thanks for the help. – Dave N Jun 6 '14 at 2:44
