Essay Formatting

Keith

May 19, 2017 10:28AM EDT

I've written and added my first essay.

When I view the essay page, it displays the essay title, and the entire essay its'self in the body. Clicking on the essay does the same thing.

On the primary essay page, is there a way to format it so it displays other information such as the date published and only a few lines of the essay?

Insert read more links explains the summary you desire and Edit theme style and settings explains the editable display settings for your theme. Settings are unique to the particular theme you are editing and are not transferable to other themes.

I'm sorry, but I don't see on the link you provided any information directly relating to what I asked.

There is information about creating essays but I don't see anything about formatting the essay list page to include dates, a brief summer (instead of the whole essay) and other information. Could you be more specific or provide a more detailed article?

And I did check the documentation first but when you search for "format essay" it returns 10 pages of articles. That's a tad much to go through and after reviewing 2 pages worth none addressed my issue so I sent in the question.

Thanks,

Thanks. The "read more" helped.
But there is no information about adding the date published. It looks like that is not possible.
Even if were possible with CSS there is no list of what variable or name to use.

Looks like I'll just be using Wordpress for my blog instead of your essays.

Thanks,
Keith

Keith, each theme has different essay designs and display options so it’s difficult to answer your question directly. If you go to demo.koken.me you can browse the essays in every theme to see what’s available. Free themes offer fewer opportunities for customization.
