Well turns out a better way of having excerpts on home page is to use the <!–more–> comment tag.
So read at your risk, or if you don’t want to edit every single post to add the tag.
I just installed and enabled this new theme Twentytherteen, very nice, clean and with this VERY BIG font that is fancy nowadays.
Only two remarks:
In order to make the theme shows the summaries in place of the full articles in Home page and other similar circumstances (search results, author page, tag page, archive page, home page) , just find and edit the file called content.php in the root folder of your theme. Easy to do with the theme editor of Word Press. And look for the following line
<?php if ( is_search() ) : // Only display Excerpts for Search ?>
And replace it with this one, and feel free to remove the pages were you want to show the full article instead (It’s very intuitive)
<?php if ( is_search() || is_author() || is_tag() || is_archive() || is_home () ) : // Only display Excerpts for Search ?>
This was about showing excerpts in home, search and other pages with TwentyTherteen.
Now let’s see how to make the sidebar work back. Easier than expected inf act in TwentyTherteen the main sidebar will appear at the bottom of the pages, while the secondary sidebar will appear as sidebar. Just move stuff from the first to the second and your sidebar will be back in place before you can say “blueberry pie”.
