Blog Posts Excerpt Text
  • The Excerpt Text on my blog posts are showing up as the canned greek text from the theme demo, not the New post text I edited in the sample posts.  Is the excerpt text edited somewhere else?
  • I found the shortcode, but the featured images arent showing up - I sized them at 430x340 - do they need to be different dimensions for this area as well as a different dimension for the little thumbnails on the right sidebar, or does it resize automaticallty?

    Hi split,

    Normally, the posts takes the first image of the post and put display it as thumbnail and for the sidebar. If you want to edit and display the featured image you need to edit the loop.php you need to put

    <?php the_post_thumbnail(array(310,210, true)) ?>

    before the content, in this area <div class="entry-content">

    give your required thumbnail size it give it as 310*210 in this example.

    Let me know what you got.

  • So if I just remove the featured image and insert an image at the top of the post, it should work without edit of the PHP file?

    No splitseconds.

  • Laranz, why wouldnt the theme work just like the Demo Live Preview without editing any code?  Any other theme has worked like the examples right out of the box.  Seems like the Live Preview is somewhat a fake, doesnt it?

    Hi splitseconds,

    No mate, we never fake it.

    Those demo posts are made like this

    <img src="http://lorempixel.com/665/260/sports" alt="" title="say_print" width="665" height="260" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-7092" /> excerpt content
    then the blogs post content.

    Did you try this method? and got the output as like the demo. If you want the featured image to be set, you need to add a single line like I said before.

    Hope you understand, If not I will clarify you anything.
