So I recently figured out how to change my blog page to display excerpts by changing the
<?php the_content(); ?> to
<?php the_excerpt(); ?> in my
I am using a custom child theme and unfortunately had to edit the parent twenty eleven
functions.php file to modify the continue reading link to read more, which I know isn't the correct way, but for some reason when I created a function in my
functions.php in the theme folder it wasn't overriding and when I deleted the lines in the parent
functions.php file the post content disappeared!? (I guess that is question 1)
My real question now is when I do get the excerpts to work video does not display in the excerpt post so it looks like I have a sentence and the post ends when there should be a video displayed. I don't want users to be confused and think that is the end of the post...
Is there another way to override the functions.php file so that I can do the excerpts read more without editing the parent functions.php
How can I get my videos to display in my excerpts?
Thanks and I hope this makes sense let me know if you need clarification!
