  • Here’s the problem: the theme allows you to add front page sections to the homepage and it pulls from pages that are already created, but it doesn’t allow you to modify how much of that content is shown. I have around 500 words on these pages for SEO purposes, but I don’t want to create a messy front page that’s clogged up with all of this information. Instead, I just want to pull a snippet of information from these pages.

    Is there a way to do that?

  • I have not found a method to restrict the content displayed on the Frontpage vs on the Single page view. The only solutions, and you probably thought about it as well is to create additional page with about two paragraphs summary and the link to the more details page that is in my navigation. It’s also good to link deeper into your site from the homepage.

    If you would convert your pages to posts, then the “more link” would come in very handy…

    Yes, actually if you just insert the ‘more’ tag on your page where it should end on the home page, then the corresponding home page section will stop at that point and will show a link that reads “Continue reading”.

    Hi Mary, thanks for much for jumping in. Wow, how could get this so wrong? I remember testing it an not being able to use the |More Tag. Hmm. Odd. Just tested it again and your are right. Works on Classic Editor as well as in Gutenberg. Thanks!

    What about the pictures between the front page sections? I did not want the pics used and found that I could delete them. But, I would like to use my own pics.

    So how do I insert my own pics in between the front page sections?

    Have you tried using featured images?
