Cannot display full posts on homepage and can't change excerpts length
 
I have been struggling with this problem for ages and through different atahualpa themes and have finally given up trying to find a solution by myself.

Whatever I do/ change in Atahualpa theme options - Configure Excerpts, nothing changes on my homepage.

I want either to show a longer excerpt (200 words or so and at least one picture) or one full post and then excerpts.
Even if I reset settings or download excerpts plug ins - the format and length of my excerpts does not change. I am getting really frustrated with this :(

Please help! :confused:

What version of Atahualpa? What are you excerpt settings?

ute Apr 26, 2011 03:15 PM

Excerpt length: 300
don't strip: <p>
Custom read more: [...]
Posts or excerpts on HOME page? only excerpts
Show the first X posts on HOME page as full posts? 1
and the rest is set to only only excerpts

I am using Atahualpa 3.6.4 (but it was the same in about 5 previous versions that I have used)

Thanks!

Not sure but see if this thread helps.

Thanks, I have replace the code, did not change anything unfortunately.
let me know if you have any other suggestions...

Are you using a "Read More" in your posts? That will override the excerpts.

ute Apr 26, 2011 04:29 PM

it does say 'read more' at the end of every post, but this appears to be the default settings that Atahualpa give me (I haven't changed/installed anything). Would I need to change/delete anything?

You indicate your Custom read more is set to Custom read more: [...] so that is what you SHOULD see at the end of the excerpts. Are you using any excerpt plugins? Could you export and attach a copy of your theme style?
