Also if I uncomment the twentyeleven functions and change there values i do see changes in the excerpt length but I would like to do this correctly instead of hacking it together!

So i just now went into the formatting.php file and tried to change the excerpt length directly and still nothing changed! I mentioned that I have a static front page and have this as a separate blog page should that change anything!?

I have excerpt_length, continue_reading, auto_excerpt_more, and custom_excerpt_more all commented out in the functions.php of twentyeleven. No matter what i change in my functions.php file nothing happens. i have tried adding the html tags to allow, changing the excerpt length, and the excerpt ending. Unfortunately this is locally installed right now which i know is no help. Im just not sure what else could be keeping this from working!

To be honest I'm not really sure how to trouble shoot it...the excerpt is displayed on my blog page but no matter what i change in that functions.php file nothing is reflected on the blog page. The excerpt length nor the allowing of tags...

nothing is working lol, i used the "good tutorial" link you posted and put the settings into the functions.php file from the "Preserve HTML Tags in the Excerpt and Other Settings" article. I changed the count in the following to 500 to see if the excerpt length would change and it didnt... $excerpt_word_count = 55; /*** MODIFY THIS. change the excerpt word count to any integer you like.***/ $excerpt_length = apply_filters('excerpt_length', $excerpt_word_count); so: i currently changed the_content() to the_excerpt() and did what i just said above and my parent theme is twenty eleven

I read the codex for the functions.php file and it should auto work without having to do anything else and the tutorial I followed has you overwrite the wp variables for excerpt_length etc.. so this should work?

so the tutorial semi helped...it helped me understand a bit more and I actually ended up using the custom tutorial to preserve html tags but for some reason no matter what i put in my functions.php file it doesn't seem to make any changes to my blog page...before this I tried the remove_filter on the twenty_eleven functions as that is my parent theme...

comment Custom Headers on Blog Posts Page
i forgot to mention that as home is set as my static page in the admin panel the blog page is set as my blog page. I do not have a blog.php template file only the index.php file /products and /blog both work as pages but the blog doesn't contain the custom header
