I once figured it out how to suppress the latest featured post on Tag and Category Views. But I forgot how I did this.
For hours I tried to find the tipping point in customizing - but without success. So I'll ask you for assistance.
I attach two screenshots. The upper screenshot shows the category view with a featured post between Category Title and Categories. Beneath the screenshot shows the way I want to customize it.
Both collections use the same skin (briks_skin)
