Oh, shoot. I'm so sorry, I using Eleven40 Pro (not Altitude Pro). Does my frustration seem reasonable now? (I feel bad for wasting your time, but I really want this solved.)May 1, 2020 at 1:43 pm in reply to: Category-specific for Latest Posts Front Page #498361
I'm talking about the front page setting to "latest posts," the basic setting from within the customized theme. I have no other option but ALL my posts. I'd prefer what Genesis Featured Posts does, or other Studiopress themes offer: let the blog page be limited. Is there a way to do this?
I specifically want only one category to show up on the front page.March 22, 2020 at 7:42 am in reply to: Change width of editor in new version of WordPress #497447
Did you ever find an answer to this?March 5, 2020 at 9:10 pm in reply to: Author Pro – Modify Book Image Dimensions #497174
This helped a little in understanding that I need to hard crop my image photos to 360x466 to get them to appear properly, but this still doesn't solve the force cropping. I even touched up the code you sent by removing the "true" statement to see if that worked. Still, the featured images are being cropped rather than resized.
I can't imaging why there isn't an easier solution to this?March 5, 2020 at 6:51 pm in reply to: Author Pro – Modify Book Image Dimensions #497172
Thanks Anita, but that didn't seem to work. It added the ability to embed a special image size within a text editor, but the Featured Image is still being cropped in both the front page and within the library page, even with an image exactly the size 850x1100. Frustrating. Any other ideas?March 5, 2020 at 10:01 am in reply to: Author Pro – Modify Book Image Dimensions #497165
So, 850x1100 would be the image size. Do you know the exact code that I should type into my functions.php file?March 5, 2020 at 8:02 am in reply to: Author Pro – Modify Book Image Dimensions #497160
I have been testing this to see how the theme could resize, and I find the theme automatically cropping the photo instead to a hard-crop 360-570. Like so:
Compared to what it should be:

Both Front Page 2 and the Library Page automatically trim the margins, rather than resize the image. Either adjusting the trim automation or coding a special resizing would solve the problem, I suppose, but I don't know how to do that.April 30, 2019 at 5:26 am in reply to: Add a Logo to the Left of Text in Header (Eleven40) #490922
Thanks Victor, you helped a lot. I have a followup request:
I'd like the image to be bigger than the text font. It currently is sized to 30px, but I would like it to be more like 50px, fitting inside the 65px bar more than the title box. Is there a way to do this? I couldn't figure it out.April 27, 2019 at 6:33 am in reply to: Add a Logo to the Left of Text in Header (Altitude Pro) #490897
My bad, it is Eleven40. I'm sorry, I got confused. I started a new thread below, and I'll delete this one when you have a chance to respond:
Thanks Anita. I very much look forward to making this change.March 19, 2018 at 5:37 am in reply to: eleven40 theme: Front page shows 100 characters. How to change to excerpt? #218093
Thanks Erika, but I already have a developer in the wings to help. I had hoped I could figure this out myself.March 18, 2018 at 11:57 am in reply to: eleven40 theme: Front page shows 100 characters. How to change to excerpt? #218065
I've got that much done already, Erika. The excerpts are entered, and they appear in blogroll pages, but differently on the front page.
Andrea, the more-tag won't work for my content. I preload metadata, and that's what is showing up on the front page.
This appears to be a tough solution, tougher than I thought it would be. I assumed I'd just add a function of some sort. Any other ideas?March 17, 2018 at 4:28 pm in reply to: eleven40 theme: Front page shows 100 characters. How to change to excerpt? #218034
This worked for archive pages, but not the front page of the eleven40 Pro Theme. If you scroll down to the list of 8 additional articles (underneath the main article), the excerpt is not published; instead, it is 100 characters with a "continue reading" link. I want the excerpt to publish instead.
Ideas?March 15, 2018 at 8:08 am in reply to: Managing Featured Image Thumbnails in eleven40 #217925
Perfect. Thanks Erika!March 14, 2018 at 10:43 pm in reply to: How to remove subhead from theme for all BUT the homepage #217905
Perfect! Thank you so much.March 6, 2018 at 6:53 am in reply to: post_excerpt not pushing out full excerpt #217349
Thanks Victor. You're helping me understand this a little better. I'm using a plugin called Shortcoder, a handy plugin that I've been using for a while to help templatize my posts a bit more. They have an include called Metadata that has the post_excerpt() function. Their include has the line:
'post_excerpt' => '',
I put this into my shortcode as
And it renders the excerpt...but only 100 characters. I tried the function that you listed, but it didn't affect the length of the excerpt.
I am suspecting that I'm not doing this right, utilizing the Shortcode plugin to display the excerpt where I want it. Do you have a different suggestion, or another solution to offer to lift (or increase) the limit of the excerpt?February 26, 2018 at 4:09 pm in reply to: eleven40 theme separator lines have disappeared #217037
Perfect! It works. Thanks Sridhar.June 6, 2017 at 8:56 pm in reply to: Pictures Cropping Automatically #207408
Well, I figured out a work-around. For some reason, pictures larger than the container (300px) will shrink in height. The larger the picture, the more the shrinkage. Strange.April 26, 2017 at 5:01 pm in reply to: Remove the Title In Categories #205393
Thanks! I plugged them all in. They don't look good, in my opinion.April 5, 2017 at 4:07 am in reply to: Center Featured Image #204310
It looks like you got it fixed. How did you fix it? I am having the same problem.
