Hi, I’m so sorry, I’m going around and around in circles with this. I have finally found how to display the excerpt on your home page items, but I’m struggling with so many other features. My home page slider is not displaying now that i’m using a dynamic template (it was fine before), and I can’t work out how to display the blog posts on the home page as you do. I end up with either the whole post (even when I’ve included an excerpt) or only the title and date. I’ve also messed up the layout of that template – do you have the settings outlined anywhere? I’m tearing my hair out as I’m on a really slow internet connection and am going backwards and forwards creating new elements and they’re just not turning out right! I’d appreciate any assistance.

I’ve managed to find my way around a bit better now and am not having so much trouble! The main issues I have now are:
- How to include blog excerpts on the home page through the dynamic templates
- How to ‘box’ the main content on the home page in the way that you have
I’d be grateful for any guidance please. The home page link is here: http://www.wattishamchoir.co.uk/dev/

Ignore all of the drivel above – I’ve figured it all out! For anyone else who is wanting to know how to only get the blog excerpts to show up, just make sure that you’ve used the ‘more’ tag within your post.July 11, 2014 at 5:35 am #289899

Glad you figured it out. If you have the time, please check our latest theme, Enfold.
