    Hi,

    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.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi there,

    edit your post, and remove the Container Block that you have added to place your content inside – it is not required. Let us know if your excerpt displays correctly afterwards

    Hi David,

    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?

    Best,
    David

    That’s correct 🙂
