    Hi, when using the grid layout for the blog, I believe the excerpt length is set to cut off at the first sentence. Here is the page I am referring to http://kriesi.at/themes/enfold/blog/blog-grid/ Is it possible to set the excerpt length to be a certain number of words?




    You can set an excerpt for each post. Edit the post, look for Screen Options (top right), tick the Excerpt option. You can place the excerpt there.




    When I click on the “screen option” INSIDE of the post, nothing happens, as if the “screen options” tab is inactive. In fact, the same things happens when I click on the ADD MEDIA button. Nothing happens. Any ideas?




    Refresh your page a few times.

    These are the steps you can do

    – Deactivate all plugins then reactivate them to check which plugin is interfering with the Screen Options.

    – Switch back to TwentyTwelve theme, see if the button works.

    – Re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress?

    – Increase the memory available on your PHP.

    1. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini

    If your line shows 32M try 64M. If your line shows 64M try 128M

    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (32MB)

    2. If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:

    php_value memory_limit 64M

    3. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:

    Increasing memory allocated to PHP

    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’64M’);

    4. Talk to your host.




    I deactivated the plugina and it still didin’t work, neither for the screen option nor for the add media button.

    I switched to the twenty ten theme and both buttons worked fine. Switched back to Enfold and they don’t work again.

    I uploaded a fresh install of the Enfold theme but still, no change.

    I have 30 other sites on this server and none of them have this problem.


    Also, I just checked and it works when I am editing a PAGE (both Screen Options and Add Media) but they won’t work when editing a POST.



    Let me tag Kriesi.




    Hey Mark! Another link request from me: Mind linking to your site so I can take a look at the front ends source code first? If that doesnt give me a clue I will probably need to dig further into your backend…


    The site is blackinventor.com – I haven’t switched it over to the wordpress site yet until I resolve this issue. You can see the home page at: blackinventor.com/home/

    I am going to send you login info just case. I’m going to to send it to you through themeforest.





    I tagged this thread for Kriesi.




    Hi Dude,

    Beautiful work on this theme, your team is doing a great job!

    On a related note to this thread, after upgrading to v.1.5.1 (from 1.4), I noticed that the grid layout for the blog content element (using Avia layout builder) no longer showed any excerpts, only the blog titles. As of yesterday, this was also the case on your demo page (http://kriesi.at/themes/enfold/blog/blog-grid), but I see that this morning the grid layout now shows one-line excepts again.

    Could you please share the updated code? Presumably this will make its way into the next update.




    Could I PLEASE get some help. It’s been over a week and I have given access to my site and presented every aspect of the problem. Can someone please help to figure out what the problem is. I have been at a standstill with relaunching the site for over two weeks. I love the theme but it does me no good when I can’t add media or excerpts.



    Hey Mark! I am sorry for the delay, the mail ended up in my junk folder for whatever reason :/

    I just checked your site and the “Use Google Libraries” plugin throws a javascript error that prevents your backend from working properly. I have no idea why that happens but it probably uses a javascript of a file that differs from the version wordpress is using.

    I have deactivated it for now and everything seems to work fine. If you really wan to use such a plugin I would recommend to use one that only replaced the front end javascripts. (but even this is risky, there is a reason why wordpress ships with all of those files by default. most themes and plugins are optimized with this default version)
