    Hello,

    When creating a blog post using the advanced layout editor, the sidebar widget for “recent posts” simply displays a featured image thumbnail, post title, and date and timestamp. No excerpt. When using the default editor, however, the sidebar widget includes a preview of the body text of the post. I would like to know how to show this same preview text in the sidebar widget for posts made with the advanced layout editor.

    Thank you—

    Hey Brad!

    Add this to your custom CSS.

    .news-excerpt { display: none !important; }
    

    Best regards,

    Hi Elliott,

    Thanks for the quick reply. That does remove it from the sidebar. I just noticed it is also included in the main content list of posts or grid of posts. Can this be removed as well?

    And *secondly*, if I were to choose, could I keep it and make the other posts created with the advanced layout editor behave the same way? In other words, how would I make the posts created with the advanced layout editor show an excerpt below the featured image in the grid of posts?

    Thanks again!

    Hey!

    Edit the post then enable the Excerpt box in the Screen Options. Add the excerpt or summary manually.

    Regards,
    Ismael
