Hi,

I have purchased this theme and can’t work out how to adjust the excerpt length of the blog previews on the front page. www.melinapink.com I want each post preview (text excerpts) to be of the same length, like it is on the theme live preview provided here. I am able to change the length for the portfolio excerpts. What am I missing?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

Your excerpt lengths are the same, but your titles are different lengths so it makes the “boxes” different sizes on the homepage.

I see you are going with a white design though, I would suggest just removing the boxed-ness via some custom CSS. Like this:

body .portfolio-entry-content,
body .home-blog-entry-content {
box-shadow: none;
padding: 0;
background: none;
}

Thank you for your swift reply and your suggestion! I have already made the css change and it looks much better! However. I have shortened all titles to one word now and the second and third text excerpts are still different in size. The text on the second is ‘cut’ short and the third box is larger. How can this be? Again thank you for your assistance. Much appreciated.

Excerpts are based on words so if the lengths will never be perfectly exact because words are different lengths.

On my live demo I have the exact same dummy text on the posts so the excerpt generated will be exactly the same, sorry for not explaining this originally.

You could alter the way the excerpts work to use actual characters but it will end up cutting up words which isn’t ideal.

Hello – I have an issue with the header image that I’m wondering you could help with.

I uploaded a header image last week and it worked fine, but I deleted the header image from the media library and uploaded a new one (I believe in that order). Then I went to Appearance > Customize > Header Image and set the new image, but the link remains the same and broken. I’ve attached an image in the hopes that it might help: http://i.imgur.com/lJiI2Jg.png

My website is inkicho.com, if that helps. Please let me know if you can help, and if you need any other information. Thank you!

Never mind. I went to Appearance > Theme Options > General and saw that the header pulled from whatever Custom Logo link I had pasted in there. I fixed the issue once I pasted the new url into the field.

I do, however, have a new question. Do these two fields conflict in some way? I tried leaving this field blank and the header images from Appearance > Customize > Header Image didn’t show. What are the purposes of having two places to set the header image?

Great, glad you figured it out! Thanks for letting us know.

The “Header Image” at Appearance > Customize is a core WordPress function (not added or used by the theme) – https://codex.wordpress.org/Custom_Headers – the option in the theme panel is for the “Logo”.

The Custom Header function in WordPress is more to be used as a background for a header area with the logo on top of it such as their default theme – https://wordpress.org/themes/twentythirteen/

my portfolio gallery doesn’t work. it only shows the featured image and when there is no featured image, it’s blank.

dont see the screen option for project option either. is this up to date ?

I’ve expanded the number of portfolio items to be displayed on the home page and now they are not stacked neatly with random empty spots http://www.lisaftarrant.com/temp/leslie/

Disregard that question, I was able to correct that. However, the menu is disappearing on smaller screens. Any advice on that?

How can I set a custom link in the menu so that it opens in a new window?

Ah, great! Thank you very much! :)

Hi there. I sent a support ticket but i was worried about the notice coming thru to you so I figured i’d leave here also. I am trying to figure out the correct URL for the portfolio. The support comments lead me to believe it should be: http://www.squeaktoystudios.com/portfolio/

But that gives me the 404 page. I have setup my wordpress blog using the ‘plain’ permalinks. Is there a different URL that should work?

I currently have 4 portfolio items. (As a test.) Is there any other setting required to be able to display the portfolio index page?

Thanks! :)

My second question (which i also left a support ticket for) is about the illustrate gallery vs the default wordpress gallary. I am getting very confused on how to update pages with the template’s gallery function. I managed to get it work in my dropdown menu Portfolio>graphic design. But I lost it in my Portfolio>Sketches page and I can’t seem to get it back.

Can you point me to the correct documentation on how to edit the attachments? I tried looking at some youtubes that were recommended on the subject in your comment/support page, but the links no longer work. Thanks!

I see none of my support staff has answered this questions. I’ll get back to you right now.
