I looked at the site preview in the library, and the blog archives show without the summary. Is it a setting in wordsmith?June 30, 2020 at 7:50 pm #1347632vasu
If I do full content it does show that, it’s just the excerpt that’s not working.June 30, 2020 at 10:25 pm #1347727LeoStaffCustomer Support
That is super strange.
It was definitely working when we both tested earlier no?
Can you try disabling all plugins again and give it another shot?
Sorry for the inconvenience but I’m quite baffled as well.July 1, 2020 at 9:55 am #1348553TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJuly 1, 2020 at 10:09 am #1348579vasu
Yes, it does, on both sites. I am at a loss. All the Classic editor posts do fine but the Gutenberg ones do not: they either show full or nothing. I republished a Classic post recently and that shows the excerpt fine.July 1, 2020 at 11:28 am #1348673LeoStaffCustomer Support
Did more digging on this and looks like it’s a Gutenberg issue.
Here are the options:
a) Remove the GB container block from around the posts
b) Add some text above the GB container block
c) Use a manual excerptJuly 1, 2020 at 12:03 pm #1348703vasu
Hi! Thank you, yes, I was going to try without the container this morning. I tested one and it works, so that’s a relief. I tried a little text outside and it does not.
Do you know of a way I can remove the container on an existing post without removing everything inside it? O/w I am having to re-do the posts. Or an easy way to copy the blocks inside and reproduce them outside?
Thanks much!July 1, 2020 at 1:55 pm #1348789TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Gutenberg doesn’t make this easy, unfortunately.
You can drag and drop the inner blocks outside of the Container.
Another option is to delete the actual container code, which is a little more advanced.
1. Select your Container block and choose “Edit as HTML”: https://www.screencast.com/t/i0UAUcUyyEb
2. Remove the first two container
<div>elements, and the last two closing
</div>elements all the way at the bottom: https://www.screencast.com/t/kflC7dWy6f
3. Select the Container block again and choose “Edit Visually”.
If something breaks, you can always un-do (ctrl + z).July 1, 2020 at 2:05 pm #1348799vasu
Thank you. That second method gives me an invalid content error. I will drag and drop. Thanks to the team for all your help!!!July 1, 2020 at 2:05 pm #1348800vasu
