    I use masonry grid to display posts. The captions display suspension points on some elements (but not all elements !) when there is no excerpt.
    See :
    The masonry gallery is set to “display title and excerpts” (on rollover).
    The first element display the title only, and no excerpt. It’s the normal behaviour, as there is no excerpt set in the post.
    The second element display suspension points as excerpt, but there is no excerpt for this post, exactly the same as the first one.
    I checked av-helper-masonry.php, on line 332, but saw nothing special…


    Hey semiocode,

    Can you give us temporary admin access to your website in the private content box below, so that we can have a closer look?

    Best regards,


    any clue?



    What do you mean exactly by “suspension point”?

    Best regards,

    suspension points or ellipsis :
    (typography) A mark consisting of three periods, historically with spaces in between, before, and after them “ . . . ”, nowadays a single character “…”
    As you can see on this page, some masonry posts contains “…” below title.



    I see now, can you please provide a screenshot of one such title with the suspension?

    Best regards,

    Please try the following in Quick CSS under Enfold->General Styling:

    .av-masonry-author {
      display:none !important;

    Hi Rikard,
    thanks but it does not work.



    Apologies, please try the following instead:

    No, this is not the point here. For some posts, i need to display the excerpt.
    If i add this css code, it will hide the excerpt content for all posts.
    Plus, I tried your code, and it hides the ellipsis (suspension points) but the ‘container’ for the content is still here…
    These suspension points seem to be added programmatically. What I cannot understand is why they are here for some posts and not for some others.



    The […] is added by the_excerpt(). There is a filter supplied called the excerpt_more filter that is specifically included to customize the read more text after the excerpt

    To remove the […] after the excerpt text, you can do the following in functions.php

    function new_excerpt_more( $more ) {
        return '';
    add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');

    If you only want it applied to certain posts, then the page id will have to be targeted via css.

    Best regards,
