Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] Updated to WP 2.9.2 & Now Excerpts No Longer Show Up...

I had WP 2.9.1 installed and Atahualpa 3.4.1 installed at my site at http://BusinessBooks101.com, and everything was working fine regarding excerpts showing up on my category pages and archive pages.

On the morning of Feb 11th, 2010, I updated WP to 2.9.2, and since then none of my excerpts are showing up on the category pages or archive pages for any new posts that I create.

I recently updated the theme to 3.4.6 to see if that solves the problem which it did not.

I can however go to the theme settings and change the settings on the 'Post or excerpts on CATEGORY pages' to 'Full Posts' and the full post shows up on the category pages for all posts. When I change it back to 'Only Excerpts' the excerpts only show up for those posts made before Feb 11th, which is before I upgraded to WP 2.9.2.

Anyone have any idea what is going on?

And here is a link to my archive page showing excerpts showing up before I upgraded to WP 2.9.2:

This excerpt looks like it has an image in the begining of the post. Is it a short code or a normal html image?
by default Atahualpa (following the Wordpress rules) strips all HTML from an excerpt and this sometimes can cause a problem. There is an option at ATO->Configure Excerpts to twll Atahualpa what HTML to leave in the excerpt.

The way to gaurentee you see an excerpt, is to hand craft one and put it in the post. The excerpt in the post takes precedence

Sorry... I think the problem was on my end in my post template.

I am using a plug-in to auto-fill my new posts with code to make it easier to post, and one of the fields in that plug-in is the Excerpt field.

It appears that I had in three spaces in that Excerpt field, so when I added new posts, the Excerpt included with the post was three spaces, that is why my excerpts were not showing up. Looks like a bug with the plug-in update I downloaded around the same time as I updated WP, and I will let the owner know about.

Your comment saying "The excerpt in the post takes precedence" keyed me to look at that field in the post.

It just seemed to coincide when I upgraded to WP 2.9.2, but this had nothing to do with it.
