Hello dear Staff,
I love a lot chicago theme and i want to buy the pro version for having better control on it… But i have a small problem on my posts/excerpts:
I would that bb code and text colour get involved in the exceprt in home page and i’ve tried Advanced Excerpt Plugin and i works but in that case the thumbnail image becames defiled on the layout… see in the home page:
http://www.coccole.net the only article…
With pro version i could get more coulour and excerpt control without plugin that wastes theme original design?

@Luchino: The “Excerpt” layout will nit display your post formatting and it will just show plain text with featured image. So, if you want formatted text to show then you don’t need plugin. You can just go to “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Layout Options => Archive Content Layout” and select “Show Full Content (No Featured Image”. Now, your homepage will show full content of your post. Now, you can split content using more tag

thank you Sakin i resolved about all … Excerpt is plain text which sucks without formatting… The Plugin i used is good for showing formatted text next the featured image but the formatting is not aligned and it goes under
Then three solutions
1) Don’t use the plugin and get excerpt like WordPress provide…
2) Use plugin but the image are not aligned and sucks…
3) Don’t use the plugin and neither the featured image but insert the image directly in post, isn’t it?

@Luchino: I will go for solution no 4. Don’t use the plugin and insert image directly in the post. Then change the archive layout to “Show Full Content (No Featured Image)” from “Appearance => Customize => Theme Options => Layout Options => Archive Content Layout”
Stripping format in the excerpt in done by WordPress core and we are not allowed to change that from theme. Sorry for that.
