Support » Themes and Templates » Description entry is too small

  • Hi this is my first time asking for help here, I hope that someone can point me in the right direction.

    I have installed a theme and now have a fully working website, but when I add my description to an image as required in the theme the words are cut off in mid entry with […] and I have no way to click on a link to read the rest, nor a way to give more space for the area I want to type into. I would like maybe double the space and remove the addedd ‘[…] altogether. I appreciate if I add the photo as a post or a page I can fill many paragraphs but I would much rather just use the description box as supplied and use a short description in there although a little longer in space than I am given.

    Example image is here

    Thanks for help in advance.

    Your theme may be using <?php the_excerpt();?> instead of <?php the_content();?> in its template files. Try editing the relevant template file(s) and replacing <?php the_excerpt();?> with <?php the_content();?>

    Will have a look now. thanks for the tip and will let you know 🙂

    I’m inserting the text displayed below the image into the ‘description’ box not a description in another place like into the caption or alt text boxes will this fix posted still apply?

    No. The amount of text added to that description box will be limited.

    So I’m not able to add a decent sized description using the description box supplied in the theme 🙁 That’s a pain… Is there an alternative way to do this? Maybe altering the page to add a description manually? I only have about 20-30 I will need to edit.

    You need to ask the theme’s developer these questions.

    I guess I will do that then, but I thought it would be a WordPress problem as it would be part of the framework, wouldn’t it?

    No – it is being controlled by the theme.

    Ok I will do that, thanks for taking the time to answer. Can you please remove my website link in the first post now as it is not editable by me.

    Thanks
