    Hi Mike,

    many thanks for providing this beautiful theme for the WP-community.

    One question please: As seen on Small Town Inertia, it is possible to chose a featured image for the front page. But it is also possible to control the featured text?

    My first guess was that the first sentences of the text appear automatically on the front page. But then I discovered that James had managed to put a passage from the middle of his posting as featured text which looks like this:
    http://smalltowninertia.co.uk/market-town-tilney1-mixed-media-protection-cocoon/
    in comparison to the front page:
    http://smalltowninertia.co.uk/

    Where do I find these settings?

    Thank you in advance and best regards
    Chris

    Hi Chris

    You are correct, the theme pulls the text (the excerpt) used on the home page for each post automatically from the post … unless you complete the excerpt when editing the post. The excerpt is an additional field, below where you add the body of the post. If you can’t see it, go to the tab top right that says ‘Screen Options’ and make sure ‘Excerpt’ is checked when editing the post.

    Hope that makes sense.
