  • Hey there saosangmo,

    Hope you’re well! 🙂

    I can’t see an option to increase/decrease the character show on the featured post. We can change this if you are comfortable editing css and a bit of php.

    Looking forward for your reply! 🙂

    Take care,


    Calvin, I am comfortable editing CSS and php!

    I, too, would like to limit the number of characters in the description of featured post, or remove all that… It doesn’t look that nice, and it’s redundant.

    Hey there saosangmo and suzyloonam

    If you refer to the content in this area here –

    You should be able to control the number of words there by editing the header.php file in the theme.

    Look for line 110 that says:

    <span class="f-excerpt"><?php echo mts_excerpt(10);?></span>

    Just change the number 10 to the number of words you want to show.

    If you want to completely remove it, just delete the whole line,
    or you can use this CSS:

    .f-excerpt {
        display: none;

    Please note that any code changes in the theme will be wiped on a theme update and you should use child themes to save yourselves from the trouble adding the code on every update.

    You can find more information about child themes here –

    Hope this helps.


    think ivan,
    I work very well. I search around but I do not look into header.php

    Thank you! I will try your fix tomorrow! Better look into child themes some more first! really appreciate the fix.
