I have quite some issues getting the blog page to work. I set the blog page to show the excerpt, but it shows the full text and NO titles at all. The single post seems to be fine.
What am I missing here? Any ideas?August 15, 2020 at 8:31 am #1404144LeoStaffCustomer Support
Any chance you can link us to the site in question?
I don’t see the issue in the original Catalyst template:
You can edit the original topic and use the private URL field.
Let me know 🙂August 15, 2020 at 12:52 pm #1404366mkjj
Added the URL to the original post. (The site is still under construction.) I don’t see these issues in the original template neither. It’s very likely my fault, but the settings seem to be ok.August 15, 2020 at 7:06 pm #1404511DavidStaffCustomer SupportAugust 15, 2020 at 10:54 pm #1404609mkjj
I’ve just checked all posts. They are set to Standard. I created a new post for test purposes. No luck, the blog page shows no title and the full text instead of the excerpt.
I temporarily deactivated the functions.php in my child theme. Made no difference. If I change the content.php (line 67) from the_content() to the_excerpt() the blog page changes and shows the excerpt. If I add
<?php the_title( '<h3>', '</h3>' ); ?>
right before the the content on line 66, the title is shown on the blog page. If I add it to the header section (line 45) it is NOT shown on the blog page.August 16, 2020 at 2:29 am #1404731mkjj
To exlude any conflicts I’ve just deactivated all other plugins and activated the Generatepress parent theme. The issues remain. I’ve checked it on my staging server. Everything works perfectly fine. I really have no clue what’s going on here. Both sites run on the same server. I rechecked the PHP configuration. Both are on PHP 7.3.
The original site was made by an amateur who used a pagebuilder heavily. But that should not cause these issues, I guess. Anyway, I removed the crap and cleaned all posts. So, everything should be ok. Obviously, I am missing something.August 16, 2020 at 5:53 am #1404875DavidStaffCustomer SupportAugust 16, 2020 at 6:08 am #1404885mkjj
You are awesome, guys. I thought by “Standard” you meant the layout settings. I haven’t even thought about the post type! That did the trick. Thanks a bunch.August 16, 2020 at 6:54 am #1404947
