First of all great job on these awesome themes, and great support. I just bought another theme. Will probably post some new questions though :)
I had a question on the newscast theme.
When i post an article, I have the option to put text into the “excerpt” which will be used into the “News Slideshow” on the top.
I noticed however, this excerpt is also used on the post (on the main page) as the first text of the article. The “Read More” I added in my post is completely ignored. How can I change this?
Let me make an example to clarify:
1. Post title: Obama wins election
2. Article content: Obama wins the US election and will be president of the USA another 4 years. The election promised to be a close one. In the last days, Mitt Romney fired from all sides …<—Read More–>
3. Excerpt: Obama wins the US election and will be president of the USA another 4 years.
News Slider shows 1 + 3 (perfect)
The Post appearans on frontpage as: 1+3 (ignoring my text until the …<—Read More–> tag i added in my post. It should show as 1+2.
Any idea? I guess this may have been asked before, altough I couldn’t find it here.September 29, 2012 at 7:19 am #92381
Open up index.php and replace following code:
<?php the_excerpt() ?>
<?php the_content(''); ?>

Great. Thansk, dude =)
Seems to be working. Let me modify my posts, so I can confirm this works like a charm..October 2, 2012 at 5:24 am #92383October 5, 2012 at 10:23 am #92384
Looks like it. But I have to go trough all the articles first and put a read more if I activate it. Otherwise the whole text is posted on the first page. Will need some time… thhxOctober 5, 2012 at 5:20 pm #92385
