BUG: Caption text edit is not global
Hi, stuvland. It sounds like you have posts that are showing different stages of edited content on the home page, single post pages, and archives. Is that correct? I’m not seeing any that can’t be edited or are showing different content. Has everything been sorted out?
That’s correct. The home page was updated, single post pages and archives weren’t. I deleted the post I used as an example a few hours ago, so you might not have been able to see the problem for yourself.
I did solve it, though:
The theme (Adventure Journal) allows for “Photo” posts to show up with both texts and photos in the Archive listing of posts (sorted by Category or Tag), which I like a lot (that’s part of the reason why I chose that layout). The problem, however, is that the Excerpt field was used to “auto publish” the first version of the post contents upon publishing the post, in order to add a source code that allowed for photo displays there as well.
When I later edited the text, the Excerpt field would stay the same, and for that reason, the Archive posts would remain unchanged.
Solution: Edit both the “regular” window and Excerpt window when making changes to the post.
(by the way, do you know any way of making slideshows visible in the Archive listings, same way as the different source code in Excerpt makes photos visible there? And I’d also like the “Read More” function to work there… the texts can get long).
Kind of messy explanation there. :p
Well – in short: The Excerpt field had a piece of auto-generated source code to display photos in Archive listings of posts (I see that other themes won’t display photos there), and I didn’t update that code when editing posts. That way, that source code would “override” my edits.
I’m now changing that part as well, and all is fine.
I’m glad you have sorted things out. If you have any more questions please let us know.
