Support » Fixing WordPress » 2011 theme excerpts on home page?

  • Hello – I just need cofirmation of what I think is true. I am thinking that with 2011 theme; “out of the box” it will not show any excerpts on home page; instead it shows entire post; all you can do is control how many posts it shows; to have it show excerpts some custom coding will need to be done or a plugin used; is this all correct?

    Thanks,

    Gerard

  • It works out of the box, you only have to use the <!–more–> tag in your post to show the ‘read more’ link on the home page.

    to have it show excerpts some custom coding will need to be done or a plugin used;

    yes;

    for instance in content.php, change line 35 to:

    <?php if ( is_search() || is_home() ) : // Only display Excerpts for Search and Posts Page ?>

    Thanks!
