    Hi Maya, you’re right, the excerpt is cut off after a single line. However, the full WP excerpt is loaded (default 55 words) and you can use custom css to display it differently.

    For example, to simply show an extra line, you could use:

    .wp-tile-container .grid div.extra {
       height: 27px; /* Doubles the height of the line */
       white-space: initial; /* Overrules the no-wrap from wp-tiles styles */

    Be careful that you adapt the rest to fit in to this scheme though (for example, a two-line heading could overlap with the excerpt in the example above).

    Hi Mike, this is great! Is there any way to display the “…” after the excerpt or is this overruled with the new white-space rule?

    No, unfortunately that only works on a single line, unless you apply hacky techniques likes this one:

    One thing you could do is make your excerpt length quite small, so it’s always be between one and two lines.. cutoff point won’t sit so nicely at the end though.

    Thanks, I’ll check it out.
