I am just setting up my new self-hosted blog using Anima, and at the moment my posts are displayed in full on my landing page and also on the category pages. I don’t want this: I want my posts to be represented primarily by a featured photo, with a short excerpt of text underneath/to the side. How can I do this?

Go to Apperance –> Customization –> Post Information –> Excerpts
There you have to choose Excerpt instead of Full Post.

Thanks, I’ve done this but I am still getting the full posts displaying on the home page and my category pages as well. It says ‘post formats always display full posts’ underneath the ‘standard posts on homepage’ dropdown menu which is strange. I don’t know what that means and how I can change it…?

@nazpaan, did you switch to Nirvana?
If you’ve tried the same content with Anima, almost all of your posts are image posts. As the hint you’ve already found says: ‘post formats always display full posts’ – this includes ‘image’ posts.September 13th, 2017 at 02:06 #53629
Yes I did, I found it easier to customise and get the look I wanted. However, your answer has solved the problem – I didn’t realise that my posts were automatically recategorised as ‘gallery’ posts, which I assume means as non-standard posts they were displayed in full. If I was to change them to standard posts in Anima (because I could switch theme again), would I be able to display the excerpt?

Yes, standard posts are displayed according to the theme’s post information option. Post using post formats are displayed in full in our newer themes because they usually display things that are not excerpt-able.September 21st, 2017 at 17:53 #54312
Thank you, that makes sense and I’ve changed the post format.
