    Apologies if this has been asked but is there a way to use excerpts of posts in the columns on the main page? I know I can use the more tag… but I’d really like to write a custom excerpt for a post and not use more tags (so that on my blog page the user sees the entire post).

    Excellent template… worth every penny and very well thought out.

    Also – OT – your forum software is great – what did you use?

    Sure, open up /framework/classes/kclass_display_box.php and change this (around line 122):

    the_content('');

    to this:

    the_excerpt('');

    You might also want to change archive.php (line 73) from this:

    the_content(__('Read more »','cleancut'));

    to this:

    the_excerpt();

    if you want to change this on archive pages (such as http://www.kriesi.at/themes/cleancut/category/infos/), thought you’d also need to add a Read More button if you still want the link.

    This forum runs on BB Press (http://bbpress.org), if you’re considering using it yourself it’s also being ported to a WordPress plugin – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbpress/ but it’s not ready yet.
