  • And I presume that to stop ALL of the project’s contents from displaying with the thumbnail, I should insert the ‘read more’break before all of it? It’s the only way I’ve found to do it.

    Thanks 😉

    Hi John, the following custom CSS will hide the Portfolio entry metadata from the projects.

    .portfolio-entry-meta {
      display: none;
    }

    Thanks for that.
    I would usually tend to do stuff like that with CSS, but I was certain that there’d be some built-in way.
    The lack of documentation on these—admittedly free products—is astonishing.

    Same with the Jet-Pack-enabled Portfolio Content Type.

    And is using the ‘Read More’ tag/break the way to stop all the rest of the post’S content displaying in there too?

    The theme documentation does not go into any customization details, but attempts to explain the main theme features and give some guidance on setting the theme up. For themes by Automattic, such as Dara, the WordPres.com Theme Showcase page typically has more detail: https://wordpress.com/theme/dara.

    If you use the Read More tag at the very beginning of a post, the excerpt of the post is not generated and placed in the HTML. For the search engines, it is better to hide the excerpt with CSS so that it is there for them to find, and it can mean higher placement in search results.

    If you haven’t seen it, visit the Jetpack site, which has more information than the plugin page at WordPress.org: https://jetpack.com/support/.

    So does this issue come up frequently? I would imagine it does every single time someone uses the Portfolio feature for the first time, but no one mentions it.

    As I say, I’d normally use CSS for things like this, but I thought it looked like something that should be just ‘switched-off’ or on, within the system and that maybe I’d missed some setting despite all of my searching.

    It’s funny that I couldn’t find it in Jetpack or Sketch documentation.

    What you say about ‘read more’ makes lots of sense. Hopefully Google won’t penalise me for hiding indexable content.

    You know, we get a few questions on it, but not a huge amount. Here are a couple of WordPress.com support pages that talk about the Portfolio feature. Some of the images and location information for the settings and controls will be different since the focus at WordPress.com is in the Calypso interface rather than the standard Admin Dashboard, but it may provide more information for you.

    Great, and thanks for all of your help on my various queries during the few few days 😉
