Support » Theme: GeneratePress » Post Format automatically uses 1st Link in Excerpt?

  • Resolved Alexandra



    i just noticed that the titles in the excerpts are linking to the first link in my posts.

    If a posts contains no links, the titles in the excerpts are linking to the post itself. Think that should be the normal behaviour?

    By the way, i use the STANDARD post format for the posts.

    Is this linking to the first link a bug or a feature which can be disabled?

    Have a nice sunny week

    Hi Alex,

    This is standard only if the post format is set to “Link”.

    Are you 100% positive the posts doing this are “Standard” post formats?

    You can see it’s working on our demo:

    All posts are linking to their respective post, except for the “Post format: Link” post.

    Good Morning Tom,

    i read some of your posts about the post formats and i checked out the demo site before i wrote this question here. That`s the reason i am a little bit confused about the behaviour.

    And yes, i just checked the the post format: On the right side i have my menu with the 7 format types and it is the first option “STANDARD”. I also created a new test post with the standard format but it shows the same behaviour: A excerpt with a title pointing to the first url.

    I can’t find the mistake…

    Strange, doesn’t seem to be happening to anyone else, so we have to look at what’s different on your install.

    Any modifications made to the theme files?

    Child theme installed? Any custom functions etc..?

    Can you try deactivating your plugins to see if it fixes the issue? If so, activate them one by one until it appears again.

    Let me know 🙂

    Good morning Tom,

    error solved. It was in fact a problem with a false template.

    The site that should output the excerpts was built with siteorigin pagebuilder. Within this site i used the “post loop” widget.

    In this widget you can choose the templates (content.php,content-link.php, content-singe.php, content-page.php)

    In my case it was content-link.php which leads to this behaviour. Now with “content.php” the headlines leading to the post.

    Thank you very much for the help!
