I’m having problems showing excerpts from my posts automatically; so far the only way to get one to show is to insert an excerpt manually.
In settings>reading I have it set to Excerpt.
In customize>layout>blog I have it set to Content type: Excerpt (for Archives)
In each post, the Post Format is set to Standard. There are no spaces in the Excerpt metabox.
I’ve disabled caching & cleared browser cache. I’ve deactivated the plugins one by one – those changes I can see, so I don’t think there’s a caching issue.
The main blog page (‘posts’ page in settings>reading) is organised by GP from customize>layout>blog into 2 columns. No excerpts are showing.
I have a block element hooked under each post, with WP Show Posts displaying other posts – no excerpts showing here either.
Thanks, I edited the posts created with GB to remove the outer container and all the excerpts display now – brilliant, thanks for your help!
Presumably if I want to have a more funky arrangement lower down in a post e.g. a grid with text on one side and an image next to it, then that’s alright – just as long as the first paragraph (from where the excerpt will come) isn’t contained within anything else, right?
