    Hi,

    I am just getting to grips with Evolve+ on a site I am moving from Joomla to WordPress. I’m have a problem with my manual extracts which are all being truncated by one word, which is being replaced by […].

    You can see the site at wp.bsac1620.co.uk.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    I don’t seem to replicate the issue from my side. Kindly could you share with me temporary login credentials to the backend so that I may figure out the issue. You may delete or change the credentials after we’re done. Please don’t forget to mark the reply as private.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi,

    That is WordPress auto-generated excerpt.
    You can create a custom excerpt and you will not see the […] after your excerpt.

    Please see my screen-cast for the steps to create a custom excerpt.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    As you can see from my screen-cast, it’s working properly.
    Please tell me the exact steps to replicate your issue.
    How you setup your homepage.

    Thank you

    I have the homepage set as a static page using the ‘Blog’ template.
    If I switch the template to ‘Default’ the extracts are displayed correctly but I lose the two sidebars that I want to show.

    The problem is also showing on the Posts Slider which is unaffected by the homepage template.

    Many thanks Denzel, that has worked for the homepage blog posts.

    I guess I need to make a similar change to the post-slider code as well.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Andrew

    Hi, Andrew. The same issue with the post slider has been driving me crazy, but I have solved it.

    In wp-content/themes/evolve(-plus)/library/functions, there is a file called “basic-functions.php”. Open it up and look for “echo evolve_excerpt_max_charlength($excerpt_length);” in the evolve_posts_slider() section.

    Replace:

    echo evolve_excerpt_max_charlength($excerpt_length);

    with:

    the_excerpt();

    and your regular custom excerpts should now appear in the post slider.
