The_excerpt returns empty result

Hi,

The current state can be viewed here. This is with except enabled. I am using the excerpt length of 100, however, the default value or any other value doesn’t change the final output.

I tried modifying theme files to debug a bit. Here are my findings:

  1. In content.php, the_excerpt returns empty result i.e. entry-post is empty on the UI.
  2. has_excerpt seems to return 1

Let me know if I can help to debug this further.

PS: Only option I currently have is to show full post content on the home page. Theme does output the_content() property but not the_excerpt()

Hello there,

Visit Appearance > Customize menu from your site’s dashboard, and go to Blog options section. And uncheck the two options on “CONTENT/EXCERPT” group.

Thanks, but that doesn’t seem to help. Unchecking both those options (also the default option) actually doesn’t show any excerpt.

Hello there,

Try editing content-classic-alt.php instead of content.php file.

I actually have Full Width (no sidebar) layout selected. Isn’t that supposed to call content.php? I guess content-classic-alt.php is used if Classic (alternative) is chosen, isn’t that correct?
