The category archives are showing full length of the article instead of excerpts. I tried the option of Excerpt to show only 25 words but it shows full length. I also tried deactivating all plugins but it still doesn’t work…
Please see screenshot attached…site under construction
Also the Read more button doesn’t get displayed…not sure what’s wrong…thanks in advance.
Nope I wasn’t using that…After your reply I tried using custom excerpt that using Gutenberg and it worked but it shows the excerpt on the side of the image…how do I change the excerpt location to the bottom of the image?
OK – the the Excerpt Word Count is the number of words. Those dummy articles have less then 55 words hence the entire post is displaying and no Read More shows because its effectively showing the full post.
You can change the position of the image from aligned left to centered in the Customizer > Layout > Blog –> Featured Images > Alignment – you will see there are separate tabs for selecting archive / post / page.
Also make sure your image is large enough to fill the column and container width.
