Hi,

I'd like to know if there's a way to enable links and structur of featured posts on the front page of the theme.

Example: (Page contains links and structure trough line-breaks).

Example2: (How this page looks on the front page)

Best Regards,
iSpectra

I think I understand. On the home/blog page, you want to see the HTML fully rendered on the post excerpts. For example, you want the links on the excerpts to be active (clickable) from the home page. By default, WordPress doesn't allow excerpts to contain HTML tags, because of the possibility that an opening tag (like an opening DIV or anchor tag) would be output without the corresponding closing tag if the portion being output as an excerpt is very long.

You can create excerpts which include HTML tags as follows:
  • Go into your postformat.php subtemplate (Appearances > Montezuma Options > Sub Templates > postformat.php) and change the bfa_excerpt() to the_excerpt().
  • Go edit a post. If you do not see the Excerpt field, click on the gray tab in the upper right corner that reads Screen Options, then check the Excerpt check box. You should then have an Excerpt field below the main post area into which you can create your excerpt, complete with HTML tags.

Hey, thank you for your answer.
If, for example, I want to make an excerpt for links or a break, is it enough to enter
HTML Code:
<a href=""></a> , <p></p> and <br/>
into the excerpt field?

Hi, thanks for your answer!
But what exactly do I have to enter into the except box? Html code like <a href=""></a> and <br/> (If I want links and breaks to work) ?

You are responsible to put in the manual excerpt box ALL the text and HTML that you want to show up.

Alright, thank you!

One more thing: When I enter something into this box, a "read more" link will show up on the front page. But since the theme already creates a "read more" link by default, it shows up twice now. As you can see here: http://ijonathan.de/juedgemem.

iSpectra, if you normally use the Visual editor to edit your posts, switch to the Text editor. The Text editor will display the HTML of the post. Then copy and paste the lines that you want from your post, including any HTML code like links or formatting tags, into the Excerpt field.

true, so you need to edit the postformat.php virtual template and remove the code adding it in.

What I did, instead of taking it out of the postformat.php file, was add this CSS to hide the "read more" coming from the excerpt function:
Code:
.post-bodycopy .post-readmore {
display: none;
}
I liked the "read more" in the post footer better than at the end of the excerpt.
