Need Help: Full Post Content for Sticky Post, Excerpt for Rest

  • Anonymous


    Hey All-

    This is my first build with the Graphene theme, and it’s wonderful! Amazing work. I am looking to create a sticky post that displays in full, with all the other posts below it showing only excerpts. I found a post where Syahir addressed this by saying:

    “The posts on front page are showing excerpts by default. If you want the sticky post to show the full content, you’d have to use the graphene_before_post_content and graphene_after_post_content action hooks. This is actually not that difficult to achieve is you know your way around PHP.”

    How would I go about doing this? I’m comfortable editing the .php files and what not, just need to be pointed in the correct direction.

    Thanks again, and great work!

    Try adding this into your child theme’s functions.php file:

    function graphene_full_sticky(){
    if (is_sticky()) {
    $content = get_the_content();
    $content = apply_filters('the_content', $content);
    $content = str_replace(']]>', ']]>', $content);
    return $content;
    return get_the_excerpt();
    add_filter('the_excerpt', 'graphene_full_sticky');

    And of course, set the posts to display as excerpts on the front page in the theme’s options page.
