Splendio Post Slider text not formatting

  1. I searched the forums and did not see this mentioned by anyone, so I am adding this help request. I am switching our blog from DARK WOOD to SPLENDIO. I read all the info about Splendio and chose it to use its SHOWCASE template. I followed the instructions and created two new pages, HOME and POSTS. Then I set HOME to be the SHOWCASE template and set POSTS as ONE COLUMN. Then I set the front page to STATIC - HOME and posts to POSTS. The problem is that the TEXT is not formatting properly in the three featured posts. I viewed it in three browsers with the same problem (IE 9.0.5, Firefox 11.0, Chrome 17.0)

    First ... it is only utilizing less than half of the space it allocated for the feature posts.

    Second ... it seems to be removing all formatting and just displaying the text with no paragraphs, no bullet lists, no number lists, even ignoring preformatted text posts.

    Here are two portions of a screenshot showing the problem:

    * Bulletted list: http://godisinourmidst.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/splendio-bulleted-list.jpg

    Thank you for your kind assistance. I tried to figure this out for a few hours and now I decided it was time to see if someone can point out what I am doing wrong :) Thank you!!!

    The blog I need help with is godisinourmidst.com.

  2. Hi! I'm using the Splendio theme right now. I think the featured post slider depends on 3 things:

    1. How long is your Title
    2. How long is your content
    3. Your featured image for the featured post.

    I don't know if there's any tricks on this but I think there are just around 70 words that will make it in the featured post slider + the image. In order for the space to be utilize well, you must have a featured image and around more than 70 words of content (including the title.) By the way, I don't know as to why it removes the formatting. Sorry, :( But I hope I helped you in some way.

    This is the first time I commented in the forums but I felt like I wanted to help you because I too am having problems with Splendio. But I love its colors that's why I can't switch. >.<

  3. Thanks for your comments and notes ... at least you have verified that Spledio is indeed stripping out formatting for the text (odd that it would go out of its way to do something like that). I don't have any images at all in the featured posts (and do NOT want any there ... I don't recall it being required to have an image in each post). Question: What did you discover about the length of the Title ??? I never thought about that as a variable in this! Thanks again! And I hope that someone finds out about the format stripping aspect of this theme (and a possible update or work around)
