[resolved] Snippet vs full page (5 posts)

    Blog in blog is working - cat posts are on one page.

    Is there a shortcode I can add that will show a snippet vs the full text?

    I tried include_excerpt=true but no dice.

    Dissapointed to find no answer here, I did a little digging myself over at:

    In short, go to the Settings>Blog-in-Blog>Template tab and replace "%post_content%" with "%post_excerpt%". From there, it's merely a matter of adjusting your excerpt length:

    or, dare I say it, multiple excerpt lengths:

    Replaced %post_content% with %post_excerpt% in the template tab and it worked like a charm!

    Thank you so much!

    Dear Vagabondy,

    You're quite welcome. I noticed that you mentioned "cat posts". My wife, Heather, and I have 3 of our own and would love to explore your Web site :o)

    Lol Cory, thank you!

    I meant category posts but I have 4 cats on the farm, one inside one. I love them! Sorry that the site is devoid of "cat" posts!

    Cheers! --V
