Here's what I want:
- Lead picture (thumbnail/featured image) on the main page that's linked to the full post
- Length of excerpt on the main page controlled by the "more" tag (or some other way that's not a fixed length).
I can make this work by selecting the "featured image" for the post and then dropping the excerpt in the "manual excerpt" box, right?
If that's the case, a couple of questions:
- Do the theme "thumbnail settings" override the "picture settings" set within the post for picture formatting?
- Is there a way to display 2 or more images with the excerpt (besides siamese-ing them into 1 file)?
