How do I shorten the excerpt length of each listing on the homepage? Thank you!
hi Erin Johnson,
Thanks for your post. You can try configuring it here https://wpgeodirectory.com/docs-v2/templates/archive-item/ and see if it helps.
For the life of me I cant get the settings to change to shorten the preview, here is the page: https://theruralcollective.com/directory/
Any help would be appreciated – thank you!
Try adding this:
[gd_post_content key="post_content" limit="25" read_more="See listing ..."]
If there is another one like it, remove it.
Ok I tried that and still not working :(. Shoot – where to from here?
Thanks for your reply. Could you please share your Website WP admin access here in private reply so that we could check on it?
Post Content was set to display in GD Output Location, I have deactivated it in the custom fields.
Thank you! The excerpt is now shortened, however it is now displaying the ‘special offer’s’ text instead the profile information – is there a way to show this instead? Thanks!
Yes, you have total control over what shows in the GD Archive Item template.
You can stop showing the post content by removing or altering the GD Post Content element in the GD Archive item template.
GD Post Content can be used to display any textarea, including special offers.
