I'm working on a new installation of WordPress. My client wants to have a front page where the front page of the site has static text, and then shows a few featured posts. I've got a loop set up to query for posts with the category "Front Page Featured".
This seems to work except for the_excerpt() returns all 55 words, instead of truncating at the <!--more--> tag. I have a feeling this is due to the loops not playing well together. Can you offer any advice?
