Flexsitez - Flexible Excerpt Layout - Excerpt Listing featured thumbnails
Posted by Sarah on 06 March 2014 10:40 AM

As of Flexsitez plugin version 1.9 Flexsitez Layouts Settings are available.  The Flexible Excerpt Layout allows different styles to apply to standard blog roll (list of blog posts), category, monthy, or tag archives and search listings. These new layouts rely on the featured images in each blog post and excerpts.

These are the configuration options for the 3rd Option - "Excerpt Listing (full width) with featured thumbnails ". To edit the Flexible Layout Settings,  in the Flexsitez Admin (Wordress menu>Flexsitez), select the theme you wish to edit, click the "Flexsible Excerpt Layout Settings" button under Wordpress Stylings heading. 

Select the forth excerpt layout option, "Excerpt listing with featured thumbnails" and select the pages to apply this layout.

1) Override Auto Excerpt Length  - if you would like the text to be shorter or longer than the default of 55 words.

2) Use Post Icon and Decorative Title Image (where applicable) in Excerpt Listing - if there is a post date icon and/or a decorative title image and you do not wish for these to show, set this to FALSE, otherwise TRUE will show the images.

3) Number of Excerpts per page - This will override the main Wordpress setting of "posts per page".

4) View More Text - This is the link text to click to view more of the posts. Continue Reading ? is default. Change to View Full Post» . Copy the character not the code. More help on available special characters can be found here

5) Show Share Links below Excerpt Listing  - Setting to true, will show the 4 share links (twitter, facebook, comment, and feed) that visitors can use to share with other. This setting only applies to Flexsitez built in icons.

6) Use MAIN Post Divider Image in Excerpt Listing - Set this to true to have the post divider image between excerpts. False to show no divider or to upload a separate excerpt divider.

7) OPTIONAL: Divider Image (If FALSE above use a different image) - Upload a divider image

8) Thumbnail Image Size

Thumbnail Size 50x50 px - this is a cropped image, set to the current thumbnail size in the Wordpess Admin Settings>Settings>Media.
Post Thumbnail Size 100x100 px -  this is a 100x100 px cropped image
Medium Thumb Size 150x150 px -  this is a 150x150 px cropped image
Large Thumb Size 275x275 px -  this is a 200x200 px cropped image
Medium Media Size max 200x200 px -  this is a MAx 200x200 px sized (not cropped) image, set to current medium media size in the Wordpess Admin Settings>Settings>Media.
Large Media Size max 800x800 px -this is a MAx 800x800 px sized  (not cropped) image, set to current medium media size in the Wordpess Admin Settings>Settings>Media.

If changing thumbnail, medium, or large media sizes, please follow these instructions to regenerate thumbnails - How to regenerate thumbs . Wordpress does not automatically size new thumbnails for older images so it is important to do this after adding any new sizes or changing media settings.

Featured thumbnails are required for this layout setting to display a thumbnail image.

9) Default Thumb Image - This image will be used for posts with no images in the post. For best viewing, upload an image the same width/height as thumbnail image size.
