Support » Fixing WordPress » Odd issue with excerpts

    Hi all. Noticed on a customer’s site today that excerpts are appearing below her thumbnail images. I then checked a few other sites, including my own (linked above) and the same thing is happening. That gallery section is some simple custom code written for me a few years ago, and the code doesn’t reference WordPress excerpts at all so my guess is that this is not an issue with the code, but perhaps WordPress.

    In order for us to tell WordPress NOT to display an excerpt, we would just type a space in the Excerpt field. Now, WordPress is not reading that space, but it WILL read   in place of a typed space, to block the actual text-based excerpt. Is this perhaps a new function of WordPress, or perhaps a bug?

    Thanks for any help.

    Looks as though you now display excerpts if no excerpt was typed, but we did type a space and your change is ignoring the space unless it’s typed as code.

    I would submit this on GitHub but after reading the instructions, have no idea how to. 🙂
