excerpts and content
November 13, 2013 at 3:42 pm #14350
Hi I really need the Encounters Pro theme to display Archives, Blog and Categories as excerpt. The rest is ok as full content. Please can you tell how to change it as at present everything is showing as full content. I went into content.php and change the
However, it changes everything to excerpt. Where am I going wrong please? THXNovember 13, 2013 at 6:58 pm #18618
Here is some documentation as well:November 13, 2013 at 7:34 pm #18619
Hi, that didn’t work but I did try:
However, my blog is still showing full content and I’d like an image in there. I have been following your video support and I think its missing ‘how to get the small image onto the blog’. I know how to upload image sizes etc but when you’ve got a big image on a post how does it convert to a small image on the blog? Ok enough for now, hope you can help. :huh:November 13, 2013 at 8:43 pm #18620
I’m not sure if you noticed but you have a double << at the start of the code; should be one only. Perhaps that is why it wasn't working? For the small blog image, that is controlled from the theme options Basic Settings tab on the customizer.November 13, 2013 at 9:12 pm #18621
also I don’t have recent_post in my extras?November 13, 2013 at 9:49 pm #18622
Hi somehow I’ve managed to create the recent post plus with the correct pic and wording – all good here. Archive, blog and categories are showing 2 of the same images and double posts and at least 300 x 300 pics. What could this be please?November 13, 2013 at 10:18 pm #18624
Hi sorry forget that last Q. There are no pics on the RECENT POST PLUS (neither mini pics on right or article) and the archieves, categories and blog are full size still. HELP PLEASE! :kiss:November 13, 2013 at 11:19 pm #18625
I think it’s best you show me a link to your site.
In the meantime, as for double images, my guess is that you are using a “Featured Image” plus an image inserted into the first part of the post? Recent Posts Plus won’t show thumbnails unless a post has a “Featured Image”.
As a side note, when someone starts to make changes to the theme’s core code, it falls out of theme support, but I will help you on this one. Please note that if I need to go in and fix the code, it becomes billable time, so you may want to be careful with custom code changes 🙂
But let’s start with sending me a link to your site. Also, did you see my post earlier about the double << you had in your code?
Also, you are correct, the Recent Posts snippet is not in the extras folder. I will need to add that and do an update to the theme.
Just to clarify, you are wanting your archives and blog (categories) to use excerpts instead of the_content method?November 14, 2013 at 12:49 am #18626
Hi it’s late here so tomorrow I will change the content.php back to original, I only changed one feature so it’s an easy fix.
I was thinking about the image, that this
could be the issue so what is a Feature Image?
Yes, I did look at the >> and that was my error pasting on the forum.
I would like archives, categories and blog as excerpts, but don’t seem to be getting anywhere. :ohmy:November 14, 2013 at 1:09 am #18627
What I will do is try something out on my local test site. Perhaps what I could do is what I did recently for my Luminescence theme; I added a feature where the choice of content or excerpts is left up to the end-user to select from the theme options. So it’s one or the other, then add it as a new feature to an update of Encounters. I’ve had one person a while back request this of Encounters.November 14, 2013 at 3:45 am #18628
Ok that sounds a lot better, look forward to it thxNovember 14, 2013 at 11:40 pm #18644
Just a quick follow up…I’m working on that new added feature to choose content or excerpt in Encounters. Before I go live with it later today, would you be willing to become the beta tester for it?November 15, 2013 at 1:00 am #18645
Does that mean to test it if so that’s okNovember 15, 2013 at 1:02 am #18646
Exactly…I have to step out for a bit then when I get back will finish up on the changes then I can send it to you with some instructions.November 15, 2013 at 6:46 am #14351
Contact me via email by going to the Support page and at the bottom click Email Support. I will send you the new version of Encounters which now has the choice of content or excerpt.
