Hide posts excerpt from Latest News widget only

Dear Support,

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:

  1. It still displays the three points […] that exist after the excerpt
  2. 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?


Dear Ioannis,

Could you please try to apply the following CSS code through the Simple Custom CSS plugin or child theme’s style.css?

.sydney_latest_news_widget .entry-summary{
   display: none;


Once more, it is perfectly done!
Kharis you are the BEST!
