    hi,

    I just noticed this the other day, but it seems as if the slider doesn’t conform to the article format and it makes it a little bit sloppy.

    for example…the slider shows this excerpt for my latest article:

    Written by: Carnes Sendry Ever see the ‘F*S=k’ thing? That means that Freedom (F) times (*) Security (S) equals (=) a constant (k). The suggestion is that you can only add more security at the cost of having less freedom. In reality, the equation is far from being a proof, but the concept is brilliant.…

    the article itself shows it as:

    Ever see the ‘F*S=k’ thing?

    That means that Freedom (F) times (*) Security (S) equals (=) a constant (k). The suggestion is that you can only add more security at the cost of having less freedom. In reality, the equation is far from being a proof, but the concept is brilliant.

    how do we get the 2 in-sync. or can an option be added so we can type what the slider should show.

    Hi Andrew,

    That is because the slider displays the excerpt of the post using the WordPress’ the_excerpt() function, which removes all formatting.

    WordPress allows you to create your own excerpt for each post. In the Edit Post screen, if you scroll down there’s the Excerpt meta box. Simply type your manual excerpt in there and it will be used instead. You can use html inside there for formatting, and they will be retained.
