'get_the_excerpt' works fine on all of my pages but the archives page, and I'm thinking it's because I copied some code from a tutorial that uses $wpdb, which mysql to display information, and that is what's throwing me off. Mainly because I don't really understand php, yet alone mysql.
$theid->ID works on most things (like category, titles, and EVEN Thumbnails!) but not for the excerpt.
What is going on?
