I am unable to figure out how to limit how much of a post’s info shows on the portfolio (blogroll) page. My WordPress dashboard does not show a field for this. It only asks which category we want to display (we set that to Portfolio), whether we want to exclude category ids, and the number of posts to show? All posts are set to the Portfolio category and display but I can’t limit the amount of text that shows on the blogroll page. There doesn’t seem to be an option for this…. is this an easy fix? Website is here: http://www.originalginger.com/demos/firstclass/blog/ (it’s still a work in progress).
Oh no! I just figured out that I’m using the 1.0 version of Legacy instead of the latest version. Does anyone know what PHP or CSS I need to add in order to limit the text to display only an excerpt of a post on a page? If I update the theme now to the latest one I’ll lose all of my CSS changes I think. 🙁
You’ll have to manually update your theme if you want to keep your css changes.
Since the Genesis Framework has made many updates and changes, that means the child theme will have to as well. You can manually do it all if you wanted to and it should work fine…..but there’s not really an easy way to explain other than just going through and manually doing it.
Instead of using the Portfolio I’ve decided to just use the default blog; but, when I choose this option it only shows two sentences of each post. Is there an easy way to change this and allow more characters to show? Here’s a link: http://www.originalginger.com/demos/firstclass/blog/ (work in progress)
