    Hello, I have a brighbox theme installed here: http://synergy-yoga.com
    In the blog post I would like to see the excerpt and the read more link but it doesn’t show me that. I haven’t really made any changes to any settings as far as I remember, and then the lines loop-portfolio.php I see these lines are present:
    the_excerpt();
    echo ‘‘.__(‘Read more’,’avia_framework’).’‘;
    Can someone please help me with how I can get just the excerpts on the blog posts.
    Thanks a lot

    Hi c_srishti!

    You can choose whether to display full post content or the excerpt in the blog posts element. Or see here, https://kriesi.at/support/topic/change-blog-to-excerpt-instead-of-full-post/.

    Hi Elliot,
    On the link you sent me has this solution:

    Create a page, insert the Blog Post element. Configure the options, look for “Blog Content length”, select “Excerpt with Read More link”.
    

    Not sure how to do this…
    I have a page called blog and in the brightbox them options, in the section, “Where do you want to display the Blog?” I have this page “Blog selected.
    Not sure where to find the “Blog Post Element” as mentioned in the solution above.
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi!

    Sorry for the delay

    Please create a new page and assign it as the blog post page from Admin > Settings > Reading > post page

    Then add a blog element to you newly created page.

    Take a look at the below screenshot this options is available when you click on the blog post element > Blog Content length

    Cheers!

    Hello, login info below, Thanks a lot for your help!

    Hey!

    I’m sorry for the confusion but the Brightbox theme doesn’t have the advance layout builder. They’re referring to a different theme called Enfold which we are highly recommending to you as a replacement to your old Brightbox theme. Back to the original issue, if you want to display the excerpt to the blog overview page, use the more tag: https://en.support.wordpress.com/more-tag/

    Best regards,
