I customized the twenty eleven template to be used as a website instead of a blog. However, I do have a blog page set as a showcase template. The blog post that I chose to be sticky becomes the featured post, but it shows all the text and doesn't show the "continue reading" box in the lower left side of the post. How come I can't get my featured post to look like your demo? Does the post have to be short in order for the "continued reading" box to show up? Or am I missing a step? Please help.
