Wordpress conflicting with Pagelines excerpts...

Recommended Posts

Wordpress: 3.5.1

Pagelines: 2.4

Base Theme: 1.0.2

Website: http://www.zoefitness.com

 

I cannot seem to figure out how to remove the "Continue reading" link from the bottom of post excerpts on the home page of one of my clients. I have configured the Pagelines Excerpts to 140 words, wanting a longer preview, but it is not recognizing this setting. How do I fix this?

Hi Compartmentlife 

 

Did you manually add 'More' tag in the visual editor?  http://d.pr/i/rRBU


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Hi Compartmentlife

No, the only thing in the visual editor is the image and text. My client wrote the blog post and doesn't even know how to add the "more" tag. It is happening on every post... I'm sorry, I didn't add the website link.

It might  be easier to remove the "Read Full Article" link and then change the "Continue Reading" text to whatever you'd like (if you wanted different words).

I didn't add the "Continue Reading" text... I have no idea how to edit or remove it and can't find any options in any menu to modify it. Plus, I want more text in the preview than it is allowing.

Yes, but it might be easier to hide the read full text link and then adjust the Continue Reading text. First, try deactivating all active non-PL plugins to see if the problem with the number of excerpt words persists.

This problem persists. I have not removed the Pagelines default "Read Full Article" and left the field blank, but it the displays [Continue Reading...] instead. I need a proper solution and want to be able to manager the excerpt length as designed.

Hi there, ok go into the post that the client wrote and check in there to see if they added a manual excerpt inside the edit post field. If they did, remove it. screencast.com/t/1nzXIm77

 

Also check inside the post to see if the client added a more tag, this will display like this http://screencast.com/t/56DTtCAT7C5q if they did, delete it.

 

Both of the above will affect the way the excerpt displays on the posts page.

 

Then go to Pagelines>site options>blogs and posts and scroll down and set the length for your excerpt, and the text you want for the continue reading button.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

I have already been through this and it does not solve the problem. It is happening on every post, not just the one shown. Please look at the site.

I thought maybe Wordpress was causing this, so I removed excepts and all text disappeared. Then, I showed full text and the full posts appeared. Then a went back to excepts and it continues to show two "continue links" with no control over length...

HI,

 

On a fresh installation of Wordpress/PageLines both the latest version, I set the Excerpt length to 200 and clicked save, here is what I got.

Therefore, I recommend you disable all non-PageLines plugins and sections and see if this resolves you issue, because with my fresh installation, there is no issue.

Alright, now I'm having more problems. My custom CSS has stopped updating the site. The old code still works, but any new code is not being applied. I have deactivated ALL plugins, reinstalled the current version of Wordpress, cleared all browsing history and yet the home page still appears to be cached somehow. I continue to have more and more problems with pagelines on a regular basis and the site load speeds are terrible...

Due to the caching issues, I DELETED WP Super Cache... It seems that even with it deactivated it was causing problems... My updates are now taking effect as they should and I removed the double [read more] posts. I will attempt reactivating each plugin one at a time to see if I find the conflict.

I discovered that the issue was the plugin, Q and A Plus... since I paid for this plugin I decided to modify the code rather than not using it. The function.php file uses the same excerpt code copied from the TwentyEleven Wordpress theme. I simply deleted all of it and it seems to be working. Sorry for the back and forth. It just doesn't seem to make sense sometimes trying to track down these conflicts.

      just migrated from Frameworks to the newest DMS (pro)
       
      When I was using Frameworks, under the "Blog and Posts" settings, I used the "Allowed Tags" option in the Clip Excerpts to enable elements like <iframe><img><object> to appear in the excerpt shown on my blog page.
       
      I used that feature extensively... thankfully there's a legacy option that has enabled me to continue abusing that feature. 
       
      Is there a better way to be doing this (allowing, for example, images or embedded YouTube videos to show up in excerpts displayed on the Blog page?

      Hi
      Is there any option to set up flipper thumbnail on the side rather than on top of the excerpts?, or some codding will be involved?
      Thanks

      Please take a look at bwise.wpengine.com/blog page in Firefox and Chrome.
       
      In Chrome, images appears correctly; In Firefox, they do not.
       
      I have Excerpts set to allow <IMG> tags. 
       
      Here's what I see:
