Recently, I got all the add-on and I am now playing with them.
However, I am struggling a bit mainly because of two features:
1) How can I personalize the appearance of the blogs ND BLOG LISTING on the homepage? (see http://www.erbium.at)
* Background color only for the first post?
** Different excerpt length for different posts?
*** Content of a post shown in the HP: how can I change the colors or go to a new line, or add a link? All this is displayed correctly in the post page itself but not on the homepage (I am using Masonry)
2) With the add-on SECTION:
why I can not use/have the left and right sidebar?
*** The above will help with this as well. When you have the blog post content set to “excerpt” in “Customize > Blog > Blog Content”, it will strip all HTML (colors, line breaks, links). Setting the more tag will display all of these, and so will setting the option to “full post”. The more tag will work with either.
