Reduce content to email subscribers
Hi, when sending out a new post to email subscribers is there somewhere in the settings where I can send out just a paragraph to give them a flavour. At the moment I’m sending the entire post so there is no need for them to click through?
Also, whilst I’m here is there a way of making my post comments more prominent on my blog? At the moment mine are buried at the bottom of my posts?
Thanks in advance
The blog I need help with is lifeisapeachblog.com.
Yes you can set your RSS Feed for post to “summary” on this page > Settings > reading and that will provide only the beginnings of your posts with a link to read the full post on the blog. But you cannot cherry pick out a paragraph to be used as an excerpt as the excerpt box on the Bueno theme is not active.
I’m sorry but the answer to your second question is “no”. Unless you use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme the front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page and you cannot change this. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.
In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.
HI, thank you for the prompt response, I have changed my settings for the RSS feed now.
Re the second issue, that makes sense what you have said. But is there any way i can change it so that the voting feature is not at the top as no one uses this? Some people use the ‘like’ feature but that is hidden at the bottom and only when people click on the post so I’d prefer this to be more prominent.
The answer to your question is “no” as I can find nothing in the support ducmentation that allows us to position them and on that theme the ratings display above posts. The “like” button positioning cannot be changed either. Like buttons appear at the bottom of posts just before the comments box as it’s presumed that we don’t want people clicking them until after they read the full post.
