I'm really liking this theme considering that this is the first time I am setting up a wordpress blog, so great work on the theme!
Just a question though - I have implemented the bug fix for the excerpt by replacing the functions.php file. Prior to implementing the file, I had the don't strip this tag option as <img><p><div><a>, with the excerpt length set to 55. I had set the don't strip this tag option as I wanted to include the first image as part of my excerpt.
The issue is that after I have implemented the bug fix, and after I have written an excerpt for a particular post, the image no longer appears in the excerpt - I think this is to do with the manual excerpt overriding the automatic one? Is there a way to include an image in a manual excerpt?
Also is there a way to make the most recent post excerpt to be displayed in a bigger table than the older entries?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
