    Hi,

    I am new to Generate Press and wanted to know if there is anything I am missing after having set up my first site before I start hacking.

    I have three issues with the blog that I can’t seem to fix using settings – These are probably simple when you knwo how.

    1. Blog Archive title is ‘Blog’ – Not News as I have set it up.

    2. Featured images not displaying since I added the ‘page hero’ element to single posts.

    3. I don’t seem to be able to remove the excerpt from archives page – I.e. I simply want image and title and meta to display.

    Hi there,

    1. Are you using the {{post_title}} template tag for that? If so it won’t work for the blog page.

    As for now you’d need to create a separate page hero and use a manual title instead:
    <h1>News</h1>

    2. Is it set to display in the customizer for Posts?

    3. So it’s currently set to 0 in the customizer?

    2. That’s very strange. Just tested with a header element and it didn’t hide the featured image:
    https://wordpress-202309-991531.cloudwaysapps.com/?p=1

    So the featured image shows up if you remove the header element?

    If so can you let me know what your setting is in the customizer here?

    3. This post listed 3 reasons why the excerpt option isn’t working:

    Can you check if any of them apply to your case?

    Let me know 🙂

    Hi there,

    2. Edit the Header Element – and select a Background Image, you should then see the Disable Featured Image option – is this checked ? If so uncheck it.

    3. Do you have any plugins or custom functions that you can try disabling to see if there is a conflict?

    Hi David,

    2. Cool thanks. Need to fix some styling issues but there it is 😉

    3. Only the standard recommended plugins were active. All deactivated and problem solved. Switched back on one by one and didn’t break again. Annoying butt fixed.

    Thanks 😉
