    Hi there,

    Can anyone help me figure out how to display full titles on the homepage of the Runway theme? I would like to display full titles in both the Genesis Responsive Slider and above the post images below. As it is now, it is only displaying the first three words or so and an ellipses, and that does not entice anyone to click on the posts. I considered changing all my post titles to be three words long but that would negatively impact SEO results and would also be so vague that a) no one would want to click and b) you would eventually run out of titles. PLEASE HELP! Is there any way to code around this?

    - Lindsay

    I’m betting there is a function in functions.php to truncate the titles and keep them on a single line. You might try contacting Viva la Violette for support since it’s a third party theme.

    Thank you for your response. I will try reaching out to Viva la Violette. I wish I noticed this problem before purchasing the theme and setting it all up — it’s definitely a huge design flaw in my opinion.

    I agree – the theme is beautiful and I understand that single-line titles keeps everything lined up nicely, but some of us like to post longer titles than 1 or 2 words!

    There is a function in functions.php to truncate the post titles. If you want to display the full title, you need to remove that function. Since Runway is a third party theme, I don’t have access to it to tell you the exact function.

    I’m not really sure if its in the function.php. Here are the sections that she has listed in the functions file…

    // Add Viewport meta tag for mobile browsers
    // Add support for custom background
    // Add support for 3-column footer widgets
    /** Customize the credits */
    // Enqueue sticky menu script
    // Add support for custom header
    // Reposition the secondary navigation menu
    // Customize the post info function
    // Modify the speak your mind text
    // Create color style options
    // Add Slider Widget Area
    /** Custom image sizes */

    From what I can see, the only thing that would be related to the titles would be the “customize the post info function”, which I removed and it did nothing to the titles. I’m still working on it but haven’t figured it out yet.

    I found it! Yay… its actually under the Home.php. You can adjust the number of characters there.
