Customizing pinpost's excerpt

Recommended Posts


HI, I have just joined pagelines family for not more than 24 hours,


I would like to ask can i customize the excerpt that is shown on pinpost?

i want to use some designated text like the classic post excerpt, I would also like to change the metas shown like the date, the category, or the number of words that can be viewed.


but it seems it doesn't support this, am i correct?

how can i customize it, thank you~

Unfortunately, the PostPin section doesn't actually use the excerpt, it takes it content from the full post. Therefore, what you're trying to achieve isn't possible out of the box. However, you can contact one of our Pros and see if they can assist you.

      I'm trying to add a Careers page to a site to display job openings. The plan is to create a Post using a subcategory 'Careers' and then display those on the page. All of the post sections in PL seem to include images and there's no obvious way to remove them or include an excerpt from the post. 
      Any suggestions?

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?

      Hey there,
      I hope that this questions doesn´t come up every day:
      I´d like to set up a sub-page that contains my blog (http://www.finmeetstech.com/blog/). When I am adding posts to this page, they always show as excerpt with a read more button that links to an other page, at which the full post content can be viewed. However, I would like to either have the whole blog content on the first page (http://www.finmeetstech.com/blog/) or to change the functionality of the read more button, so that it is toggling the full content instead of loading a new page. 
      I already selected
        For each article in a feed, show Full text
       but it didn´t work.
      I am using DMS with the voyant child theme. I hope that you can help me with this. Moreover, I should add that I am not really confident in editing any php files. 
      Thank you in advance.
