Can you help me understand the purpose and function of the blog overview template? My first guess was that it would automatically use post excerpts with ‘read more” links but when I select it as the page template for my blog page it doesn’t seem to do anything. Here’s a link to the page: http://leapindevelopment.com/viewpoints/ . I will create my own excerpts if I have to but had hoped that the Overview would take care of that.
If you can explain what it does maybe I can find a use for it’s true functionality.
you can use the read more tag: http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More to create the excerpt.
Yes, I realize that and can do so. I’m still curious as to the function and purpose of the “Blog overview” page template. It doesn’t seem to do anything.
Yes that’s right. This template and the portfolio template are required for the framework. You can set the blog and the portfolio pages/options in the theme option panel. Currently there’s no way to hide templates in WP that’s why you can see them too. The only template which makes sense is the fullwidth page template.
