[resolved] Blog home page picking up WWSGD text as excerpt (6 posts)

    I've been using WWSGD for a couple of years now, no problems at all. All of a sudden, today, when I uploaded my latest post I discovered that the excerpt that shows on the homepage of my blog at bobinoz.com/blog was displaying the text from the plug-in instead of the first paragraph from my post.

    This has never happened before, and the only way to fix it was to disable the plug-in and as soon as I did that and refreshed the page, the excerpt appeared as it should, with the opening text taken from the post.

    Any ideas why this might be happening anyone?

    Hi Bob are you still experiencing this issue?

    Can you let me know what version of WWSGD you're using?

    Hi Richard, thanks for getting back to me. I ended up moving the location of the message to the foot of the pages and posts, so that in itself solved the problem. On reflection, I prefer it at the bottom, I have written a longer message that is less intrusive.

    For the record though, the version I am using is 2.05.

    Hi there, I thought it better to continue this post than to start a new one as I am having a similar issue... I either only just noticed it or it occurred when uninstalling a different plugin. Basically my home page is a list of most recent posts. A page that I can't get the ID for as I don't think there is one. And I have just noticed that in the excerpt of the 1st post the text from this plugin shows up. I would prefer for it not to appear on the home page at all.

    What solution for this would you suggest. I could do something like.. if is_home but I would need specific directions from you. I'm sure posting that here will help out some more people too!
