    Hello
    I set up GP to show my posts in 3 columns – one of my blog posts’ post format by accident was set as ‘gallery’ instead of ‘standard’ – in the column layout the full content was shown, text, gallery, etc. obviously throwing off the whole layout – is that the intended behavior??

    Hi there,

    Couldn’t you just switch the post format back to standard since it was a mistake?

    Or I’m missing something here?

    Let me know 🙂

    That’s not the point, isn’t it – I sure did switch the post format back for now but I still think that this behavior is probably not intended, isn’t it?

    That’s actually intended, as the only way to show HTML (like a gallery) is to show the full content instead of the excerpt.

    Let me know if you need any more info 🙂

    Thanks Tom – is there a filter to avoid this behavior – in the past I just used the post format as an indicator and maybe use some different css for that specific post format – showing the full content in a e.g. 3 or 4 column layout is just not practical in my case but I guess that’s just me then

    For sure, try this:

    add_filter( 'generate_show_excerpt', function( $show ) {
        if ( 'gallery' === get_post_format() ) {
            return true;
        }
    
        return $show;
    } );
