Support » Plugin: Page-list » Excerpt not shown in newest page listed

  • Resolved viajarapie


    The excerpt is correctly shown for all pages listed but the latest (top of the list). The page in question has an excerpt defined in the “All in One SEO pack” plugin provided field, the same as the rest of the pages whose excerpt is correctly shown.
    Thanks for any help!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @viajarapie

    I think Page-List plugin will not be able to show the excerpt if the “All in One SEO pack” stores the excerpt in their own meta field instead of the default post excerpt field.



    I would suspect that was the cause but there was no other field for excerpt input and I compared with previously existing pages in the same situation for which pagelist_ext was working well.

    It turns out it was just that. I think pagelist_ext was still showing excerpt for older pages because they’d had the excerpt field filled even though now it was not showing in the backend interface. I can’t remember but I probably added php code to show excerpt field for pages in a file that was overridden by a WordPress update.

    In case it helps anybody else with the same problem, this is php code to add an excerpt field for pages:

    add_post_type_support( ‘page’, ‘excerpt’ );

    I’ve included it now in an update-safe area so it doesn’t get overridden again.

    All works fine now. Thanks for the tip!
