Remove Featured Image from Post in Twenty Twelve WordPress Theme

Twenty Twelve WordPress Theme sets a big old ‘Featured  Image’ on top of the post content  if the featured image is set in a post.

To remove the Featured Image from this area but keep it intact for excerpts where it shows elsewhere you need to hack it in CSS or edit the content.php file, working in a child theme make a copy of content.php from the parent 2012 to your child theme.

Go to line 20 and delete or comment out

<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>

 featured-post-2012

If you have a blog page set to a page other than the home page then you also need to make the same edit to the content-page.php file to get rid of the featured image on line 14

    I have to google this every time I update my theme because I always forget where to go, and what code to change! Thanks for really spelling it out for me!
