hi rick,

is it possible to replace the [...] at the end of the text on the feature box with something else? preferable ability to link to the post (although now that i think about it, it would have to be a link set for that specific post).

 

okay, i now see the issue with doing something like that. i'm not a fan aesthetically speaking of the [...] and was wondering if there was another kind of option.

 

BTW a feature box that would allow for linking to a specific page (in this case the post) would be great. something along side when we select the image in wordpress, we could also select the link we'd want the active "Continue Reading" to take us to the post page. no idea if that's possible or an option in the future.

 

thanks, david

David - both things are both possible and built in to Thesis 2.1

To change the ending of the excerpt and to add some sort of "read more" link just open up the options on the Excerpt box.  If that isn't enough options then I'll be publishing an excerpt box that also allows you to set the excerpt length.

You feature box can easily be created using a Thesis Query Box.  Just add content to a page and then select that page in a query box placed in your feature box.

i just saw the description of the feature box on your website and that sounds like what i need it to do. i have version 1.0.2 installed but i don't see any place for options. i don't have a plugin, just a box installed.

 

on the manage boxes page, i don't see anything.

 

on the html editor there's just a gear programmatic ID

 

on the post page the only option is to remove feature box image.

 

is there someplace else to find the options?

David, that feature box plugin is only for Thesis 1.8.5.  It doesn't work in Thesis 2.  However if you search the site for how to create a feature box in Thesis 2.1 you'll find a couple of tutorials.  There is this video - and a couple of seminars.

You need to think in Thesis 2

i think we're talking about two different boxes. i think you're referring to the older plugin. i'm referring to a box. you have the BYOB Featured Image Box For Thesis 2 on your list;

 

https://www.byobwebsite.com/plugins/plugins-for-the-thesis-theme-2/

 

and the box page

 

this is the one i've implemented and it actually works, but no customization.

 

are we talking about different things?

 

i'll check out the video you linked as well.

Ahh, yes I failed to understand what you meant.

At the moment you will find those settings under Skin Content.  However, the new Thesis 2.1 WP Featured Image box has most of that functionality as well.  Just select it from within the post box and set its options.
