    Hello! I have been trying to change the excerpt length of my blog posts, but no matter what number I put in (currently set at 200), it stays the default 50. I have tried some custom css as well, but still no luck. Could you help. please?

    Thank you!

    Nevermind! For anyone else having the same problem, you can either use some very useful .php code and a custom css editor, or to retain styling and make it even easier on yourself, you can use the “Advanced Excerpt” plugin!

    Well, using a plugin or jumping into the code seems useless if we have an option in the theme.

    @support: It does not work propperly on my installation neither.

    it shows with set 50
    “Letzte Woche sind wir mit einem Freund eine weitere Strecke in den Schwarzwald gefahren. Die Tage vorher gab es Minusgrade und die angekündigte Wetterfront hätte Regen fallen lassen können, der unterwegs oder auf der Straße gefrieren hätte können. Es war früher Abend und stellenweise schneite es. Aufgrund der Wetterankündigung…”

    with set 200

    at 200 it stops more length of except.

    What now? I need a little bit more.

    Greetings Christina

    Hi Aki Christina,

    To show excerpt content on front page, please make sure of following things:

    1> Go to dashboard->Appearance->customize->basic setting->content or execerpt, There you need checked except options
    2> Adding content inside excerpt area @ SEE How to use excerpt on wp?

    if still you got any problems on this , please let us know.

    Thanks

    Thank you.

    Using only works with “Content” .

    As the theme provides a possibility to set an individual length of the excerpt in the Appearance board, it would be of great help if we could use it.
    So what is it for?

    It would be really fine to use it to set it global.
    Or is the setting only for the masonry style?

    Hi Aki Christina,

    You can use manage excerpt content length and content read more tag for all the posts and obviously its global. Can you explain us on detail where excerpt length is not working and where you want to implement same. Here in our theme we have used masonry style for Cascading grid layout library. Excerpt length and content read more tag can be used any where.

    Please let us know if we are understanding you fully or if perhaps this is not what you meant.

    We look forward to your response

    Thanks
