    I’m sure with the older version GP Premium there was a Blog sub-menu in the Customizer which gave you the option to adjust the excerpt length for the main blog archive page amongst other things, I cant seem to find this anywhere in the latest version, am I imagining this ever existed or has it been removed/moved?.


    Hi Andy,

    You are not imagining. The Blog options should show up in the Customizer when you are on the blog page and tuck away when you select other pages. It’s part of the new update 🙂


    Thanks. I’ve set the length to 0 because I dont want any excerpt, just the featured image, I also removed the read more label but there is still the … on the page, how would I remove those?.

    I would use CSS for that:

    .blog .entry-summary,
    .archive .entry-summary {
        display: none;

    Works great – thanks again for your continued first class support!.

    I’m using the Freelancer Child Theme so I can make any CSS/PHP changes. However, it says in the child theme stylesheet not to add any CSS to the file as it may get updated, doesn’t this go against the whole idea of using a child theme?.

    That’s the trouble with child themes hosted on WordPress.org – I need to release updates to them to keep them current.

    Child themes are more geared towards custom page templates etc.. There’s plugins out there for CSS and PHP so child themes aren’t necessary.


    Of course, you can just change the name of the theme and change the folder name to something unique and you won’t receive updates for it.
