    Hello,

    Just wanted to say that your Twicet template is very nice. I had a good look around and after much debate we chose this template – so thank you!

    Question: In your sample your text in the slider has a line break between paragraphs. When I insert line breaks in my post text description the text just wraps without a line break. This makes it difficult to read. I also want to use bullets/Bold etc Any ideas?

    Thanks again.

    Hey,

    You shouldn’t be having an issue adding an unordered list – make sure you use HTML view and add this code:

    <ul>
    <li>Test</li>
    <li>Test 2</li>
    </ul>

    or for a list with links, this code:

    <ul>
    <li><a href="#your-link-here">Test</a></li>
    <li><a href="#your-link-here">Test 2</a></li>
    </ul>

    How does one add a line break to the slider post? I’d like to avoid copy being cut off, and have the break after a short, introductory paragraph, instead.

    Thanks–

    Are you using Twicet? I’m asking because some users post in the wrong forum and at the end it turns out that they use another theme…

    Dude,

    I am using Twicet. I’m following up on apbonline’s question.

    Ok – in this case open up: index.php and replace:

    echo'<span class="meta">'.$punchline.'</span>'."n";
    echo'<h2><a href="'.$link.'" title="'.get_the_title().'" >'.get_the_title().'</a></h2>'."n";
    the_excerpt();

    with:

    echo'<span class="meta">'.$punchline.'</span>'."n";
    echo'<h2><a href="'.$link.'" title="'.get_the_title().'" >'.get_the_title().'</a></h2>'."n";
    the_content('');

    Now you can use the read more tag: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More within your post content to create a formatted excerpt.

    Thank you, dude. You pointed me to the fix:

    the_content(”);

    should be

    the_excerpt();

    this allowed my ‘read more’ to perform correctly.

    Glad that you found a solution :)
