Show the first couple of lines of the post

Recommended Posts


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

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

Something big is coming for DMS + photographers.

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?

      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.
