Hi, Here's one for you. I have these two blog sites both done in Platform Pro: (1)

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

(2)

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

Now they both have (as far as I can see) identical settings in the Blog and Posts section and in the Reading part of Settings but (2) is showing excerpts above the two full-width posts. I want (2) to behave the same way as (1). What have I missed and how do I go about resolving this? It's driving me crazy trying to work out what's wrong. Please help. Grateful as always, Stu

OK... this is odd. Now they are both showing excerpts above the two full-width posts. I don't think I changed anything. What I want to do is have two full width posts showing without any excerpts and then all the other posts with the excerpts showing underneath the two most full width posts. Is this possible? If so, how? Thanks as always, Stu

Hi Stuart, If I'm understanding you correctly, you'll have to modify template.postloop.php. You'll have to do some sort of an if statement and a counter.

Hi Kate, Thanks but that means absolutely nothing to me at all. I don't know any code but the bare basics. Sorry

@Adam - I am having the same problem, even with those settings. Excerpts are being shown above full-width posts in magazine mode. It's important to note that I have full content enabled on my blog page because I want my full width posts to be full content, and the non-full width clips below to be excerpts. How can this be done?

Here is the closest to what I want. The problem is that excerpts aren't showing in post clips. When I turn them on, they show on full-width posts too.

Did you upgrade the theme recently?

@Catrina - I'm running PlatformPro 1.5.0. I just noticed that 1.5.1 is out - would this change things for me?

Looks like you might've got this fixed?

You can try upgrading to see if the problem is resolved.

Upgrading didn't change anything. I'm really not sure that something is not working the way it should. It may be that the options are just not there for it to do what I want.

Is it possible to have a blog page with X number of full-width full content posts --with no excerpt on top-- on top of post clips with excerpts only?

If you could enable the excerpts again, then we could probably give you a CSS rule that would hide them from the full-width posts. I don't think there is a settings configuration to achieve exactly what you are looking for.

I am trying to achieve something similiar to that of what you are trying to do except I want to get rid of those completely.

I will be following this thread as this is what I need.

Actually, there is a solution with no css rules needed to stop it from displaying at all. Go to Reading under your Wordpress Settings. Set 1 to the 'blog pages show at most', and this will get rid of the excerpts etc below as they are considered posts.

Hope this helps.
