    Any suggestions on how to show one whole blog post then the rest excerpts (like they currently are). I am using the craftiness theme.

    What I normally do is place one Featured Post widget at the top > set to a specific category and to full image. Then I drag another Featured Post below it > use smaller thumbnails and the excerpt. So think of the top as a “featured category” – create one that will update with just that one category at the top.

    That would work but then what about that posts that are currently showing??

    So if I use two “genesis featured post widgets” then posts (duplicates) will still show under those two featured widgets.

    And I need to have at least 5-7 posts showing because that number is the number of Post that show up on the category pages. make sense?

    Any other ideas?

    Happy new year!

    Create a specific category just to use for the top that way they won’t show duplicates at the bottom. Maybe you have some entries that you would like to highlight a bit more than others. At least that’s how I do it.

    The Craftiness theme uses the Genesis Grid Loop.

    In your home.php, look for this:

    /** Add support for Genesis Grid Loop */
    function craftiness_grid_loop_helper() {
    if ( function_exists( ‘genesis_grid_loop’ ) ) {
    genesis_grid_loop( array(
    ‘features’ => 2,
    ‘feature_image_size’ => ‘featured’,
    ‘feature_image_class’ => ‘alignleft post-image’,
    ‘feature_content_limit’ => 500,
    ‘grid_image_size’ => ‘thumbnails’,
    ‘grid_image_class’ => ‘alignleft post-image’,
    ‘grid_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘more’ => __( ‘[Continue reading…]’, ‘genesis’ ),
    ‘posts_per_page’ => 10,
    ‘offset’ => 0,
    ) );
    } else {
    genesis_standard_loop();
    }
    }

     

    Change the number of “features” from 2 to 1.

    Remove this line: ‘feature_content_limit’ => 500,

    Change this line to feature the number of characters in your excerpt: ‘grid_content_limit’ => 0,

    Thanks Susan!

    So that worked, one whole post is showing and then excerpts but the featured image is still at the top of the “full” post with the border around it. How can I remove that from the full post?

    Kendra – I can’t test it right now (I can come back later, but rather than have you waiting on me all day);

    Using the same code from earlier, I believe if you remove this:

    ‘feature_image_size’ => ‘featured’,

    that will take care of it.
