Advanced Excerpt
[resolved] does not work since i updated to WP version 3.1 (8 posts)

    My theme: Imbalance (by WPSHOWER)requires an excerpt to function properly. The installation includes Advanced Excerpt as a required tool. It worked fine at first...

    After I updated to WP version 3.1 no excerpt box shows up in post edit pages.

    The previously set excerpts sill work, but can't enter any more. I have switched to Better Excerpt which is a lot easier than manually setting excerpts for each post.

    True, it does not work. But Better Excerpt not provide options such as the Advanced Excerpt. Alternatives? :-(

    It is a problem of the theme. The plugin works perfectly

    Yes, you are right, almendron. I've already solved it. Thanks!

    You've solved it? Great. But knowledge is made to be shared, please explain how you did it.

    There wasn't a problem of the theme. It seems that the latest update (3.1.) of WordPress had changed the default settings of the screen. And –by default– I could not see that, in the options screen, the box "excerpt" was not checked. Now, the plugin works fine. Greetings.

    I actually read this solution and moved on to another search where the same solution was given. I came back to realize that what salms had said was correct. The wording threw me off so I'll just reiterate for someone like me:

    SOLUTION: On the top right corner of your post screen you will see a SCREEN OPTIONS tab. Click on it to produce a drop down list with post functions. You will notice the EXCERPT box is unchecked, as are others. Check the EXCERPT box and all will be well.
