Hello. I too have lost the ability to show the excerpts on my index page. I know how it started. I installed a plugin a while back that shows the content instead because I wanted to show videos on the home page. However I later realized that that was not the best idea and uninstalled it. However it still does not show the excerpt. Instead, in order to get it to show just an excerpt, I have to put
<!--more--> in the post after the part that I want to show on the home page. Now I don't know how to get it to read excerpts again. Any ideas?
The website is Truth Lighthouse. Also, please note that I know very little PHP code. So if possible it would really help to know which part I should edit and maybe even specifically what line.
P.S. One thing I have already tried is changing
<?php the_content('Read More', '<img><a>', 'content', false, 'More...', true);?>
<?php the_excerpt('Read More', '<img><a>', 'content', false, 'More...', true);?>
However, all that did was move the "Join the forum" link to inside the excerpt and make it to where it was no longer a link.
Thanks so much!
