Hi,

I have a question very similar to the one posed here a while ago: http://www.pagelines...sts-excerpts/p1

I also would like my first post to show the full content and the rest to read as excerpts. I'm using the Free Platform Theme. I tried placing the following code into the custom code section, but nothing happened.
 
	.blog .post .entry_wrap {display:none;}
	.blog .post-number-1 .entry_wrap { display: block; }
	.blog .post-number-1 .post-excerpt { display: none; }

The code just appeared in the footer of my site as text. I was wondering if I'm pasting this incorrectly and where exactly should I paste it?

I'm new to all this; thank you so much for any help!

If the code is appearing in the footer, you are probably adding the code to the Footerscripts box instead of the Custom CSS box.

Hi Catrina, Thanks so much for responding. You're definitely right that I'm not putting it in the Custom CSS box, but I don't see a Custom CSS box anywhere. In "Settings> Custom Code" there is only a box for footer scripts and analytics. Am I missing something? Thank you again!

Hi youmefit, I have visited your website and noticed that you're using the free version of Platform Pro. Therefore, there isn't any Settings > Custom Code area. You're free to add/edit any files/CSS etc. However, we are unable to assist you with this.

Thanks, Danny, that's actually exactly what I was trying to figure out. I had a feeling I couldn't do it because of the free version and I was nervous to edit the stylesheet.css because of the warning in the file that it will be overridden.

At present, PageLines is rather inexpensive at under $100. I'd suggest you upgrade.
