Excerpts possible with Zuki?
Closed

    Hello! I'm using the wonderful Zuki. Unfortunately the "excerpts" function does not work. I've tried a lot so that I know suspect it's because of the theme. Can you confirm that? If so, is there a workaround?
    (The "read more" tag works - unfortunately it is suboptimal for my needs.) Thank you very much in advance!

    Hi Bernhard,

    unfortunately Zuki doesn't provide an option for automatic excerpts on the posts page. Maybe a plugin providing this option will work for you. If the automatic excerpts are being displayed, they can be overridden by a custom excerpt for each post.

    Hi Marc,

    thank you very much for your reply. With a plugin it does not seem to work.

    Now I tried a different approach: In the content.php I changed
    <?php the_content( __( 'Read More', 'zuki' ) ); ?>
    to this:
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    Which seems to work. But there is probably some testing required, just to be sure that there aren't any unwanted side effects through this.

    Hi Bernhard,

    this should work without any issues. But I strongly recommend using a child theme for direct code adjustments. A prepared child theme folder is linked in the Zuki documentation.

    Best,
