Hi Nick,

 

I just bought the Anyloop section and installed it. What I would like to do with it is to make a section on my hompage where I can show some post (News).

I would like to show the title, the date and an the first couple of lines of the post, plus a read more link.

 

This is the site: http://health-gradient.eu/

 

At the moment It displays the posts fine but I don't need the full post to display, only the things explained above. I don't seem to be able to do that.

 

Just to be clear, I can not just flick out my default PostLoop sections because my site is actually build on this. I want to use the Anyloop in addition to this.

 

Could you please help me on this. Thank you.

 

Kind regards

Christel

Try cloning the section and running new options through there. To show the "first couple of lines" use the excerpt box.

Hi Nick,

 

Thank you for your quick reply.

 

I have hide the content of the post but the excerpt thing is not really working. I have put some text in the special excerpt box in the post, but no luck. Still not excerpt showing.

 

Seems to be a hard thing to solve.

 

Anything else I can do?
