    Any advice on how I can restrict the out of text that appears in the slider. Forgive me if its an obvious question. Thanks.

    Yep–use a custom excerpt. In the post edit pane, click on “screen options” in the upper right hand corner, and then click on excerpt. Now scroll below the main editing area. You’ll see a box that says “Excerpt”. Add anything you like and this is what will show up in the slider.

    Thanks for the reply. Strangely “Excerpt” is not listed. These are….

    *All in One SEO Pack *Graphene post-specific options *Send Trackbacks *Custom Fields *Discussion *Comments *Slug *Author *Revisions *Format *Categories *Post Tags *Featured Image

    *Screen Layout

    Number of Columns: 1 2

    Am I missing something (as usual 🙂

    Excerpts are only found by default in the “Post” section of admin. The “Pages” will not have the excerpt option.

    You may want to give this plugin a try:

    Or, if you don’t want to install an additional plugin, just drop this line of code into your child functions.php file:

    add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );

    That should do the trick as well.

    Hello, I’am not sure if this is the right section for this question.

    I am building a blog, but I don’t want the full posts to show in my front page, I just want tho see the excerpts as they are shown when I click on any category or clicking on any month from archive. These last two cases show the excerpts for the category selected or the excerpts for the month selected. However my front page always shows the whole posts. I have checked to show the excerpt from: dashboard- settings – read- show excerpt, but it seems it is not working. could you help me to change this. My WP version is 3.2.1 and my Graphene is 1.5.1 my web under construction is www:madresolterafeliz.com

    Thank you.

    wow this is great!! I haven’t noticed this theme feature. Just one click and that’s it.

    Thank you for your help.

    I have some questions on the way the page is shown on different browsers. I have found some details -pictures, backgronds, box-shadows- which are displayed different from one browser to another -explorer, google chrome, firefox. What is the right section to ask about this topic?. thanks again.

    Different browsers and even different versions of the same browser have different capabilities. The theme uses some new modern features that the web has to offer, some of which are not supported by older browsers, so the differences you’re seeing are to be expected.

    It’s difficult enough to make the theme works in as many browsers as possible. But the end goal is not to make the theme look the same in all browsers, but rather, to employ the new capabilities of modern browsers while providing graceful fallback for older browsers.
