            <?php do_action('bp_before_blog_home'); ?>
            if ($cap->posts_lists_style_home == 'magazine') {
                $args = array();
                $args['amount'] = get_option('posts_per_page', 9);
                $args['img_position'] = cc_get_magazine_style($cap->magazine_style_home);
                echo cc_list_posts($args);
                <div class="navigation">

  • hi lourizareyes,

    please never change theme files if you want to stay update safe.

    ** all your changes in theme files will be lost with every update of the theme.

    you can change the excerpt/full-text thing in the theme settings of the theme.

    and select “excerpt” instead if “content”, then just the excerpt will be shown.

    hope this helps, konrad
