[resolved] Blog excerpts view (9 posts)

    Hi Mike,
    Aside from albums, I use the plugin also to display the post picture.
    I have the pictures displaying fine in full post view.
    But in excerpt view - nothing shows.
    How can I make a cropped square, say 150px thumbnails show in blog-excerpts view?
    This is also critical for the Newsletter I am to send.
    Thank you for your assistance,
    Vera

    What you're seeing is normal behavior for WordPress excerpts. They are designed to not run shortcodes. I did a search online and found a couple suggestions you may want to review (I have not tried these myself)

    Thank you, Mike.
    I have almost driven myself crazy over this, but it worked finally. I must add that it only worked on the specially added excerts, not the automatic ones, but that is a small thing, really.
    Thanks again,
    Vera

    Mike,
    I have another question.
    I have a plugin for Newsletter and it inserts the excerpt of the post into its theme.
    However, for some reason, I can see "View at Picasa" under the thumbnails in the excertps, which do not appear in the regular excerpt blog view.
    How do I remove it?
    Thank you again for your assistance,
    Vera

    Sure, only how? Is Printscreen OK or would you like access? Then I would need your mail...

    Ok - I wasn't sure if there was a web page where I could see the newsletter - sounds like it's an email. Send me a message through my contact form at http://toppa.com/contact and then we can email each other.
