Blog templates problem
I’m testing the theme right now and I’m having difficulties with blog templates. Here is what’s happening:
I created a home page using a custom home page template, and I also created a Blog page, but haven’t selected any custom template like full width or grid, as I want to have it by default with sidebar.
Then I go to WordPress Settings > Reading and select my custom home page as “Front Page” and also by “Blog” page as Posts Page. Then I select “Summary” as the feed option, but the theme seems not to respect this setting. Whether is set to Full Text or Summary – it always shows Full Text.
When I choose my Blog page as Posts Page, and then go to my Blog page and change the template to Blog Full-Width or Grid – it doesn’t work, my blog page still shows posts in a normal way, full text with a sidebar.
The only way to make the other templates work is to go back to Settings > Reading and change the Post Page setting to “–Select–“, then I can change the template of the blog.
But the it still shows Full Text instead of Summary which looks really bad especially when you use grid template and the post is long.
SO I’ve checked the content.php file and found a section which says “Only display Excerpts for Search” so I tested it and yes, it shows excerpts this time instead of full text, but the “Read More” button is missing…
Ideally, I’d like the blog to look like on your demo website, as excerpts and with “Read More” buttons. Could you please tell me how can I achieve this?
Thanks a lot!
