Hi on my clients blog I can’t get it to show the text in summary format with a few words. It is showing a lot of content. I’d like it to look like it does in your example with about 40 words or less. I have these settings set up:
Reading Settings- show 4 blog posts in summary format
General Settings (theme options)- single author, big picture (no author pic is displayed, feature image is big)
What do I need to change?
I just used the more tag to do it manually for now. Is there a way though to set that automatically by chance?
You can use the more quicktag to manually set the excerpt. If you don’t want to use the more quicktag open up wp-contentthemesenfoldincludesloop-index.php and replace:
$blog_content = !empty($avia_config['blog_content']) ? $avia_config['blog_content'] : "content";
$blog_content = !empty($avia_config['blog_content']) ? $avia_config['blog_content'] : "excerpt_read_more";
if(is_single()) $blog_content = "content";
WordPress will use the get_the_excerpt() function afterwards which truncates the content automatically…
