Problem with excerpts with theme comet

    Hi, I have a blog with wordpress, but I did not buy any CSS.
    I've been using theme Comet in my blog for some months. Some days ago I noticed that in Category/Tag the excerpts of the last ten posts are not shown, as it happened before.
    I was unable to understand which is the wrong setting.

    Thank you

    The blog I need help with is calcioromantico.wordpress.com.

  2. @calcioromantico,

    We've released an update for Comet to display full contents on all archives including category page and tag page instead of displaying just excerpts. This is why you see now full contents on category/tag pages.

    The reasons for this change is that we've received a fair amount of requests from users who want to display posts on archive pages in the same way as on posts page, and we believe this is better for consistency.

    If you want to trim the content, you can always use more tag to control how much contents for each post to show on archive page.

    Thank you.
    I supposed that was an authomatic theme upgrade. I prefer the previous version...

    Please, can you post here a list of themes visualizing excerpts in the category/tag pages? The page I found includes Comet too, therefore it is not upgraded

  4. @calcioromantico,

    This might not be the perfect list but I went through free themes and found them that use excerpt on archive pages for you.

    Hope it helps.

    The "more" tag is not the same as a custom excerpt. Custom excerpts allow the blogger to write exactly what he or she wants to use as a summary, including choosing a smaller picture which can be aligned differently from arbitrarily truncating a post.

    I've not seen folks asking for such a change in these forums. With the custom excerpt feature it was/is possible to copy the whole content of a post (text editor) to the excerpt module so if someone wanted whole posts in categories and archives they could have them. (except for embeds and shortcode).

    IMO making this change allows for less blogger control of what is published. Is it possible to make custom excerpts a feature we could opt in to use?

    Je retombe donc sur le même sujet...... Sincèrement je trouvais justement cela très cogérent d'avoir juste le TITRE et l'extrait de l'article (une fois que l'utilisateur du site ai cliqué sur la catégorie qui l'intéresse) c'est justement pour faciliter les recherches des personnes qui n'aiment pas galérer sur un blog; pour les personnes qui aiment les informations rapides et claires...

    C'était ce que je préférais dans les thèmes que j'ai choisi, c'est d'ailleurs pour cette raison que je les choisissais.

    Pourquoi ne pas en avoir été prévenu et SURTOUT pourquoi ne pas avoir donné une possibilité de choix!!?
