  • Hi Guys,

    I’m using DigiNews theme ( for my blog ( My problem is this theme display full blog post on home page which cause slow page loading.

    So I want to display to excerpts instead of full blog post on index page. But not sure how to do it.

    I’ve read other solutions as well, which suggests to replace “< ?php the_content(); ?>” with “< ?php the_excerpt(); ?>” in index.php file, but I’m not seeing “< ?php the_content(); ?>” in index file.

    Following is the coding in “index.php” file of my theme. Please let me know what changes should I make to see my desired result.

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id=”content” class=”clearfix”>

    <div id=”main” class=”col620 clearfix” role=”main”>

    <?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?>

    <?php /* Start the Loop */ ?>
    <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

    /* Include the Post-Format-specific template for the content.
    * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file
    * called content-___.php (where ___ is the Post Format name) and that will be used instead.
    get_template_part( ‘content’, get_post_format() );

    <?php endwhile; ?>

    <?php if (function_exists(“diginews_pagination”)) {
    } elseif (function_exists(“diginews_content_nav”)) {
    diginews_content_nav( ‘nav-below’ );

    <?php else : ?>

    <article id=”post-0″ class=”post no-results not-found”>
    <header class=”entry-header”>
    <h1 class=”entry-title”><?php _e( ‘Nothing Found’, ‘diginews’ ); ?></h1>
    </header><!– .entry-header –>

    <div class=”entry-content”>
    <p><?php _e( ‘It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.’, ‘diginews’ ); ?></p>
    <?php get_search_form(); ?>
    </div><!– .entry-content –>
    </article><!– #post-0 –>

    <?php endif; ?>

    </div> <!– end #main –>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    </div> <!– end #content –>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>
