    Hi,

    I’m confused – maybe this question has been answered several times before – searched, but found no solution so far. So here it is:

    - I would like to define a custom layout for the default (Archive) blog page. I would like to use the advanced editor to add a custom text element and then insert the blog template builder element to configure the blog posts.

    The only modification that worked so far: in the Enfold Theme Options I could choose the Blog Style – but not the appearance of the whole page. Also when I choose something different then the grid layout the page shows always the complete text of the posts and not the excerpt.

    And ideas?!

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Create a page, go Advance Layout Editor. Under Content Element > Insert the Blog Posts element. You can change the layout under “Blog Style”. Look for Blog Content length, choose Excerpt with Read more link.

    Hi Ismael,

    that’s easy – did that before – but how do I tell WP to use this page as the default blog layout – for example if I navigate using a category menu?

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    You can set it on Enfold > General Settings > Blog Style.

    Hi Ismael,

    like I wrote in the original post – I found the “Blog Style” option – but this will only change from list to grid, but it doesn’t offer the control of the complete page. For example I would like to have an icon box on top of the blog…

    Habe die Ehre,

    Hi,

    If you want full control over the archive page. Please edit archive.php.

    Cheers,

    Hi Ismael,

    thanks a lot for your help – so there is no option to configure the layout – only coding the php template? If yes: this would be my No.1 wish for an update :)

    Cheers,

    Hey!

    No, archive pages do not support the template builder and you need to modify the archive.php file, etc. manually.

    Best regards,

    Above, I see you suggestion is to:

    “Create a page, go Advance Layout Editor. Under Content Element > Insert the Blog Posts element. You can change the layout under “Blog Style”. Look for Blog Content length, choose Excerpt with Read more link.”

    Unfortunately no matter which selection I choose it always stays at “full content” I never see the read more link. Please advise.

    Thank you

    Hi Jasmer,

    The theme uses the_content instead of the_excerpt and you use the more tag to delineate the preview text from the full article. See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/
