<?php bfa_excerpt(); ?> is not showing my excerpts but only the first part of my posts. Can this be fixed easily?

For now I am using <?php the_excerpt(); ?> to show the excerpts that is written for each post but it adds a [read more] link an [...] after the post which don't fit with the theme.

If anyone has a better solution please let me know.

Thanks

Bfa_excerpt does not display the excerpt field from the post editor, it automatically creates an excerpt starting at the begining of the post for nn words (it defaults to 55)

I have not tested but perhaps this instead as seen in the Limited PHP list
HTML Code:
<?php the_excerpt(); ?>

Thanks for the fast reply.

Now I am using <?php the_excerpt(); ?> and it works but it adds the [read more] link to the post. This [read more] link is not in line with the rest of the excerpt so it looks a little strange.

The <?php the_excerpt(); ?> also adds <p></p> around the excerpt which makes a big break between the thumbnail picture and the text.

It is just minor problems and I can live with it for now. I just hoped that there were an easy way to make <?php bfa_excerpt(); ?> show the real excerpt.

the function the_excerpt() is a wordpress function (you can read about it in the wordpress codex) and the [...] is part of it's output - has nothing to do with the theme.
