Support » Plugin: Gutenberg Blocks and Template Library by Otter » Excerpt not output in Posts block

  • Resolved sanziam

    (@sanziam)


    Hey all … seems as though the excerpt is not respected (or output) in the Otter Posts block ie I have added excerpts to all my posts, and in the settings for a Posts block I have the Title and Description visible (hidden the rest), but when output on the front end the “description” is still the main content truncated at the number of characters specified in the settings for the block. Was expecting the excerpt to be output (if available) and fall back to truncated main content. Is this on your list of things to resolve?

    Cheers 🙂

    Hey @sanziam,

    Thank you for reporting this to us. We actually didn’t think it thru, quite honestly. 🙂

    We will add it to the upcoming release of Otter. Thank you again for pointing this out!

    G’day @hardeepasrani … thanks for the super quick reply 🙂

    Love Otter by the way! Good selection of blocks with simple customisation options that don’t seem too overwhelming to use.

    Any idea when the next release is due?

    Cheers.

    Glad to know you love Otter as much as we love making it.

    The next release should be within a week or two. We’re planning some major improvements to make the plugin load faster in front-end. 🙂
