Excerpt Issues (4 posts)

    Hi all!

    I'm having an issue with the excerpt feature. It displays fine on the blog's homepage, however when a post is viewed, the excerpt appears at the top of the screen in plain text - I don't want this to happen and cant seem to figure out why it's occuring.

    Example: http://www.notyouraveragelawyer.com/2010/07/12/nothing-is-impossible-2/

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    Thanks for replying esmi :)

    I've changed to the basic wordpress theme and the issue doesn't seem to occur which makes me think it IS theme specific. I'm looking at the the_excerpt and the_content php tags as the possible source of the problem at the moment.

    The widgets do not seem to be causing an issue.

    I'd suggest looking in single.php as that seems to be where the problem starts.
