    What’s the appropriate function to make the excerpt fewer words/characters for Enfold?

    Thanks so much for your help!


    Hello andreanapier1985!

    Please take a look at Josue’s post here http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/blog-post-excerpts-2/#post-169503

    Best regards,


    I tried that but it didn’t seem to hold.


    The lady I’m making this for wants the header on top of the image and excerpt like this:


    Thoughts on how to make this look like this (as far as the title on top)?




    If you’re using the default blog layout you can use the read more quicktag: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/ to split the content into an excerpt + full text version or you can modify the theme code a bit to use the “excerpt” text instead. Open up loop-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'] : "content";
    if(!is_single()) $blog_content = "excerpt_read_more";

    – WP will then use the get_the_excerpt() function to retrieve the excerpt and will truncate the post content automatically if no excerpt text is set.

    Best regards,
