Support » Plugin: List Pages Shortcode » How to make excerpts italicized

  • Resolved mintdave


    Hi, I was wondering two things:

    1. Do I need to use a 3rd party excerpt plugin to make the excerpt feature work? Currently I am using the ‘Page Excerpt’ plugin by Jeremy Massel. Is this required, or does your plugin support excerpts on it’s own?

    2. Secondly, I was wanting to make all of the excerpts italicized. Currently, I am accomplishing this by entering each excerpt this way:

    <i>This is an excerpt</i>

    But can I delete the <i> tags and simply specify the italics style in the list child pages shortcode?

    1. Yes, excerpts aren’t enabled on pages by default so you need another plugin like “Page Excerpt” to do that.

    2. You can add the following style to your theme’s stylesheet to italicise the excerpts in the list:

    .list-pages-shortcode .excerpt {
    	font-style: italic;

    ok. thanks!

    Did you get Page Excerpt working?
    I installed the ‘Page Excerpt’ plugin by Jeremy Massel and I can’t get any display.

    The listing of page titles works ok using this code..[list-pages sort_column=”post_title”]

    But when I use this code nothing shows… [list-pages excerpt=”1″]

    I am using the latest version 1.3 (uploaded today).
