make excerpt to a div

I would like to put global height/width background etc to my excerpts, is that possible? I have not find any plugin or description on how to turn the excerpt into a div.

Thanks

The only way I can think go to do that is to use the manual excerpt box and put a div with a height in it. This of course isn't global.

Is it not possible to make the excerpt to an exclusive div? When I style 'the post-bodycopy' it messes the post up.

you could try this - edit bfa_post_parts.php and change line 140 (version 3.7.3) from
HTML Code:
			the_excerpt(); 
to
HTML Code:
			?> <div class="my-excerpt"> <?php
			the_excerpt(); 
			?> </div> <?php
this will give you a class called 'my-excerpt' that you can use to style the excerpts content - ie the body of the excerpt.

If you want to style the entire excerpt container you will have to do a lot more and that is beyond the free help avaliable from me on the forum.

the post headline is processed BEFORE this code so it must be something else you did or you made a typo. I would download a fresh copy of the theme and do a file compare between what you have and a fresh copy of bfa_post_parts.php to see what the differences are.

I cant see any differences between the a fresh 'bfa_post_parts.php' and the one with the excerpt div modification. I also made a fresh Atahualpa install and added the excerpt modification. The characters still turns up in 'post-headline'. I noticed depending on what option in the SEO for post/page title the characters change between 1> and 2> in post-headline'.

Here is the link to the fresh install where you can see the result.

That looks like the end of the '<h2> that wraps arount the post title on a multi post page. That is n another area of the code.

ok, is it a typo that doesn't need to be there or? Hard to say i guess but, 'another area', do mean in the bfa_post_parts.php?

if you look in bfa_post_parts.php you find is is broken into sections. One section deals with the post headline. That is the code that builds the html that comprises the title. I assume you have an error there...though it could be somewhere else and showing there.

it is possible that some plug-in is getting 'into the act' and causing the issue. I tried the code before posting it and it works for me.
