Support » Themes and Templates » Twentyten (as CMS) how to the_excerpt blog main page ?

  • I use twentyten theme in other wordpress installs
    they both work good with the_excerpt main page…

    but on my other site I have setted up my wordpress as a CMS (custom homepage, many pages, one button goes to main blog page showing all articles…)
    On that site I just can’t make my main blog page show only Excerpt and so not all the content… how to ??

    Create a child theme of Twenty Ten and add an loop-index.php template file that uses <?php the excerpt();?> instead of <?php the_content();?>

    Thansk for that quick answer
    I just started to use child theme 2 weeks ago… (Super!) But that site in CMS style has no child and many modifications to it so I would prefer a no-child way for this one 🙂

    ho… btw, I just checked and mysite.com/category/catname DOES get the_excerpt working well !!
    but as said, mysite.com/blog doesnt
    weird !!

    Then add a loop-index.php file to your main theme. But be warned that your customisations will be over-written the next time you upgrade WordPress or the theme. For this reason, it is recommended that you consider creating a child theme for your customisations.

    i would prefer no to for this one… ((please take note that all the other wordpress theme will have childs from no on, count on me, i love child theme now that I know them more…)) but is there a way non-child for this one timer ?? Just this one, i promise no to “not use child” again after.

    Because I dont see how WP will do better having my loop.php custom, versus hading a child with loop-index.php custom… at the end it shoud be the same result, no ?

    So if my loop.php doest make my modification… how can this child whould do it better than ?
