Okay, well thanks for your help Ismael! I won’t change anything because I don’t want to mess with hard coding and updates. I finally got on board with Child Themes for that purpose.
—-> Lazy. lol
Single Author, big preview Pic (no author picture displayed)
But it’s in a Blog Grid format: http://planningforever.com/blog
Because I could NEVER get the read more excerpt to work.
I guess I wasn’t clear. I actually want to change out the image placecard holder with a graphic that will be used every time this needs a place card holder. Does that makes sense?December 20, 2013 at 7:07 pm in reply to: Does the new Enfold update need a new child theme installed #202655
I am new to creating a child theme, which I have one. What are the best steps in updating the parent theme?
Do I install to the parent theme or the child theme? Thanks in advance. Please be specific.
UPDATE: I FIGURED IT OUT. Just update at the themes. Anything I need to do with the Child theme?

Well I changed the Single Post with Big Preview Image … and it crashed again. *sigh* I think that might be the glitch.
Well I was going to give up, I did what you said and it would work, however, then my wordpress wouldn’t let me have another “.com/blog” page … it was like, “.com/blog-3″ even though I tried to manually change it.
So I went BACK to my original blog page and then somehow, viola, it worked! There is a glitch in the system somewhere but it worked out okay. Thanks for your help!
Really like this theme. Since switching over, I’ve had two potential clients rave about my website. *sweet*
I apologize that link did not show the blog page that I’m desperately trying to duplicated.

In the Enfold theme settings it does have an “Excerpt with REad More Link”, which I have selected but it’s not doing it. I’m sure I’m just missing one step.
Can you please let me know how to fix this?
I’m not interested in doing the manual excerpts. It changes the Feed and overrides SEO, I believe.
I just want to follow up on this for everyone to see. I have not been able to get individual portfolios to show up. Always a 404 error. Devin told me to delete all my plugins and put them back on. I only use 21 plug-ins so it wasn’t a big deal. The culprit?
Google Analytics Link Builder broke the portfolio. I use All In One SEO and have had that other plug in for years … so I was surprised! Anyway, wanted to share with others in case it’s happening with you.
Thanks Devin for your help. Crossing fingers this sticks.
Also I have blogged since 2006 so my links would all be dead that people have linked to me all over the internet.
Any other thoughts?
I would prefer not to have to change the permalinks for the blog because it’s better for SEO for the blog posts and also just readability.
Perhaps it’s the .htacess flle on the server. Not sure what to do since I’m using a child theme.
