I recently switched the callout on my blog page from the_excerpt to the_content and I am having trouble with modifying it. Here is the blog for reference: http://bit.ly/zk5CK6.
The problem here is that I am using various plugins which all do their own specific function. I am using a plugin with a shortcode which the_excerpt didn't parse hence the switch to the_content. I had to put an image into the post content because we are posting to facebook with the plugin "Facebook Like Thumbnail" and it wasn't retrieving the featured image. Now we have duplicate images. Is there a way to use the_content and somehow get it to not display the image? Or, in other words, how do I get the_content to only read part of a post?
Or better yet, how do I get the plugin to read the featured image? This is the image that currently is displayed if no image is inserted into the post which is just a picture of the homepage.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
