I've been trying to highlight the first post and one of the things I needed to do was to get the layout in a specific manner which was to have an image from the post extracted and inserted before the headline. That wasn't much of a problem with a little
However the next issue is where I'm stumped right now. Since I already have an image representing the post, i need to get the rest of the post WITH formatting, without images and stopped before the
<!--more--> tag. The only way I know that I get a formatted text is via
the_content(). But since I can't process
get_the_content() are not giving me formatted text, I'm kinda stuck as to how to proceed further.
I can do a
strip_tags to replace images if i can get a formatted string terminated before
<!--more-->. But I need that formatted string.
Thanks in advance...
