Excerpt shown twice (1 post)

    Hi,

    I'm just in the process of putting together the single.php file for my site and I'm having some slight problems with the excerpts.

    My site was based around a Xoops system which uses an excerpt and main body of text. When transferring data across, I put the intros from Xoops into the excerpt field in the DB.

    This causes the problem that in order to have single.php display my full stories from xoops I have to have a <i>the_excerpt</i> in the loop. If I do this, with new stories it displays the excerpt twice.

    Obviously I could always put excerpts into the 'optional excerpt' field but this is not desirable if there is another way around it, 'cause people would forget on occasion etc.

    I tried using the <i>strip_teaser</i> property of content but this doesn't seem to work in that it strips the content and not the teaser. I think I'm using it wrong.

    Any ideas?

    Owen
