Some blog posts not displaying excerpts

Hey guys. I’m having a couple of formatting issues with Integrity. Not all of my blog posts are displaying the excerpt and I can’t figure out why. They’ve all been built in the standard WP editor rather than Cornerstone.

Additionally, my widgets are displaying in different fonts and sizes.

Any advice?

Done! :slight_smile:

Hi @fuzzypixels,

In WordPress posts, excerpts will come from excerpt options available in Post Settings.
If the excerpt box is empty, then only it comes from the content with a specified length of characters.
If you blog sites, I have examined a post where the excerpt is not coming and found that the excerpt box is filled with spaces.
And that is the reason why the excerpt is not taken from the content and also shows the blank in post settings.


Please remove those spaces, it will solve your issue.

Ah, that’s great news! Thanks for that. It was driving me crazy. I couldn’t work it out as the excerpt windows were blank! :sweat_smile: Much appreciated!

Regarding my other query, any idea why my blog sidebar widgets are displaying in different sizes?

Hi @fuzzypixels,

The widgets are having the same font, but the sizes differ as they are rendering with the different CSS classes.
Like your categories are rendered with an unordered list with the parent class widget_categories and on the other hand
your recent posts are rendered with the same unordered list with the parent class widget_recent_entries.
You can make that similar by adding a small piece of custom code at Theme Options > CSS

.widget.widget_categories li a {
display: block;
border-bottom: 0 !important;
font-family: “Lato”,“Helvetica Neue”,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
font-size: 135.7%;
font-weight: 400;
line-height: 1.2;
