  • I’m a newbie, this is probably very basic but how do you change the posts to just include summaries? I don’t think my antiquated theme has this option so perhaps it’s in the code?
    Here is the site:

    Thank you!!

  • What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    I am using
    By the AmberPanther teamVersion 10.03.31

    I inherited the site, helping someone out is a very old theme that has not been updated in three years, is probably not compatible with the current version of WordPress and may no longer be supported by its developer. I would recommend that you consider switching to a more recent theme.

    Ok, thanks. If I switch to a new theme do all my current settings disappear, will I have to reprogram things?

    You will have to set up an custom header and/or background again. Plus add all of your widgets back in (they’ll drop into the the Inactive pane in the loser part of Appearance -> Widgets). And you’ll need to re-apply any custom menus but the menus themselves will be retained. It sounds like a great deal but it shouldn’t take very long to set a new theme up and it will leave the site in far better shape in terms of future-proofing.
