    In the Naturo theme, I would like to use a manual excerpt for the feature boxes on the home page. I have added excerpts to the pages that are used, but I still see the page text, not the excerpts: http://peridot.ebdesignonline.com/

    Thanks!

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Kindly go to function.php and find this get_the_content

    replace it with this get_the_excerpt

    If you still having a issue with this let us know.

    Regards,
    Shri

    Hi. I am using the IT consultant pro theme and would like to display the page excerpts in the feature boxes on the front page. I tried the functions.php route as described above but there is no “get_the_content” funtcion to replace…

    How is it done in the IT consultant pro theme?

    Hi Limont,

    Kindly go to page-box.php and find this code
    <p><?php echo wp_trim_words( get_the_content(), of_get_option('pagecontentlimit'), '' ); ?></p>

    And replace it with this code
    <?php the_excerpt(); ?>

    Regards,
    Brad
