I would like to hide the excerpt from the Latest News widget so that it only displays the featured image and the post title, but no excerpt.
I managed to wipe off the excerpt by setting Excerpt length to 0 words (at: Appearance > Customize > Blog Options).
The problems with this workaround is:
- It still displays the three points […] that exist after the excerpt
- In addition to the latest news widget, it also wipes off the post excerpts from category views.
Is there another way to exclude the post excerpt from the Latest News widget?
